Taking household appliance technologies and presenting them to industry partners
- JMAG is a strategic tool helping bring about a technological revolution -
Lighter, thinner, shorter and smaller, yet highly functional. Motors promote evolution of household appliances and bring about their own evolutions. Evolution that is now starting an original approach to car and industrial-use parts. JMAG has supported research and development. Dr. Michihiro Kurokawa and Dr. Yukihiro Okada, who are in charge of research and development for major household appliances, products for cars and industrial use items at Panasonic Corporation talked to us about using JMAG in product development.
Introducing JMAG-Designer Ver.13
We released JMAG-Designer Ver.13 in December, 2013. Ver. 13 has added over 40 new functions, particularly accelerating the Solver, enhancing the precision of loss calculations and beefing up multiphysics analyses and results analysis functions.
JMAG-VTB is Now Easier to Use
We simultaneously released JMAG-Designer Ver. 13 and JMAG-VTB Ver. 3.0 in December 2013. We improved the method of using JMAG-VTB Ver 3.0 and added a navigation function. Even analysis beginners can easily obtain analysis results using JMAG-VTB. JMAG-Designer license-holders can use it immediately, so why not give it a try? This article will describe JMAG-VTB features and latest updates to the software.
Motor Design Course
Issue 2 Moving Forward with Motor Concept Design
In the September 2013 issue of this newsletter, the first of these ongoing columns, I gave an explanation about the background to starting a course on motor design. In this issue and the second column, I'll finally get around to explaining what's involved in designing motors. The theme of this column will be to provide a starting point for concept design. Although it may seem a little boastful, what I'll do is go over some of the results that we have obtained through our studies and, hopefully, these will be of use to your work.
Starting With Vibration Noise Analyses Vol. 1 (Motor Edition (1))
Vibration noise has become an unavoidable issue when dealing with electrical equipment in recent years and it seems magnetic circuit designers are somewhat distant from vibration sound analyses. In this series, I would like to give a description of initiatives toward a vibration noise analysis where electromagnetic force obtained from JMAG acts as the vibratory source. I'd like to focus on motors for the first entry in this column and describe modeling methods to get a grasp on an analysis of resonance from electromagnetic force and eigenfrequency. It would be wonderful if motor designers not involved in electromagnetic vibration took it on or joined with machinery designers to devise methods to counteract vibration noise.
Issue 6 Lesson on Advanced Iron Loss Analysis
In this series, I would like to introduce various papers that present ways of using JMAG while performing electromagnetic field simulation. In this 6th edition, I will describe nine papers that focus on the impact of iron loss and enlighten about the necessary knowledge and modeling technologies for advanced iron loss evaluation.

Common Questions for JMAG
JMAG is used across a broad spectrum spanning from advanced research and development through to product production design and in educational fields. There may be many among those reading this JMAG Newsletter who still feel they haven't learned how to master it or perhaps feel a bit lost about how to set it up. When you come up against obstacles to using JMAG, of course there's always Technical Support, but don't forget there are also FAQs on our website that you can use to solve problems by yourself. In this issue, we will select from those FAQs five questions that have been asked a lot recently. We have divided the questions into three categories of "Operation Methods," "Analysis Technologies" and "Troubleshooting," so please pick the category in which you are most interested.

Issue 11 Electric Field Analysis from A to Z
If you asked many JMAG users how to go about conducting an electric field analysis in JMAG, it's fair to say they wouldn't be able to offer a precise answer immediately. People use JMAG for evaluation of magnetic phenomena, but there are only limited numbers of products that need to make allowances for electric field analyses to it's rare for those involved in magnetic field analyses to reach out to electric field analysis, too. Although the names of electric field analysis and magnetic field analysis have a close resemblance, they're handling different phenomena and are evaluated in a divergent manner. This issue of A to Z will focus on how to handle particular types of phenomena using JMAG's electric field analysis, as well as introduce material properties and various types of conditions so we can get you acquainted with electric field analysis.
JMAG University Partner Introduction
Expectations of JMAG's highly accurate, detailed analyses of loss, control and vibration
In the electrical engineering faculty of Shanghai University, research is moving forward in a wide range of activities including material modeling, electrical circuit design, multiphysics and control design using HILS. We have been in a partnership with Shanghai University since 2012. In this issue we will talk about the partnership between JMAH and Shanghai University.
