Choose JMAG moving forward to 3D analysis
Bern University of Applied Sciences -
The Permanent Magnet Motor Expert Group at Bern University of Applied Sciences focuses their research on permanent magnet synchronous machines with high torque and power density. The use of JMAG allows them to predict with a high degree of precision the performance and losses of their designs. Since 2008 they have started using 3D FEA to get better results for special motor geometries like dual air-gap motors or to predict the influence of different winding systems.
DC Brush Motor Design Example
In the latest version of JMAG-Express Public released in July 2013, a DC brush motor calculation function has been added. In this issue, we'll give you an example of an actual motor design utilizing JMAG-Express Public's properties as an example of the DC brush motor functions that were recently added.
Motor Design Course
Issue 1 Why have a JMAG Motor Design Course.
Many JMAG Newsletter readers have expressed an interest in motor design, so we decided to do a series on the subject from this issue. But, having said that, we're analyzers and not motor design specialists. That makes it a bit rich to say we're holding a course. Nonetheless, we kick off this series with the thought that it might be useful for readers to pass on what we've learned about motor design through plenty of painful experiences in the past.
JMAG's initiative on loss analysis
JMAG has since the late-1990s continued maintaining a materials database, model creations and analysis functions because it should be able to respond to users' actual requirements. We have continued moving forward on function development to meet the rising demand in recent years for even greater precision in loss evaluation.
This newsletter will show just what level loss analysis accuracy has attained and what we're going to do from now on to enhance JMAG's precision, as well as give insight into the history of JMAG's loss function development.
Issue 5 For Those Planning to Start Analysis of Large Transformers Part 2
In this series, I would like to introduce various papers that present ways of using JMAG while performing electromagnetic field simulation. In this issue, I will introduce 12 pieces (refer to  through  in Reference) of literature that will serve as a good reference for users who plan to start using electromagnetic field simulation for large transformers.

Common Questions for JMAG
Traditionally, JMAG has been used mainly by technicians specializing in electrical systems, but in recent years there have been more opportunities for mechanical designers and others to use it for electromagnetic designs outside of their own field. There are probably quite a few among those who have made the transition to this unfamiliar tool who worry about how they should use it to perform better analyses.
This section of the Newsletter deals every issue with questions that we receive most often to help people who are having similar kinds of problems, and make JMAG a more user-friendly tool.
The questions here cover a wide range of topics, such as "Operation Methods," "Analysis Techniques" and "Troubleshooting." Please take a look at the topics that interest you.

Issue 10 Structural Analysis from A to Z
JMAG continues to evolve with each passing day. There may be functions in JMAG that even those who have already been using it will learn for the first time. There are also some useful procedures that are not well known yet. Why don't we aim at making operations more efficient by becoming familiar with new functions that we don't know about? In this series, I would like to introduce "Things that we should know" in JMAG, as well as some advantageous applications.
