- Virtual Prototyping in Developing Next Generation Heavy Equipment
In this issue we'll learn a little more about John Deere. John Deere has been aggressively pursuing electrification of their vehicles to increase productivity and reduce operating cost. Electrification projects range from adding small electrical motors to improve cabin comfort to creating a hybrid drive system by incorporating traction motors. There are many benefits to electrifying heavy machinery. Besides the obvious reduction in fuel consumption and improvement in ride quality, you can also improve tire life through active traction control in a hybrid tractor. As you would imagine, replacing tires on a wheel loader is a costly repair! And plans to continue development of electric machines. Tetsuo Ogawa recently sat down with Jim Shoemaker to learn more about what John Deere is doing and how they are using JMAG.
JMAG Achieves High-Speed Calculation
JSOL continues daily efforts to develop new technologies for further acceleration of the JMAG solver.This issue focuses on the performances of the JMAG high parallel solver and GPU solver boasting an exceptional level of calculation speed. This is a must-see for those who wish to calculate large-scale models quickly.
PM Motor Design in JMAG-Express
Handy features are constantly added in our motor design tool, JMAG-Express. This article will use PM motors as an example and introduce case studies of motor design using the unique functions of JMAG-Express. We hope you will make use of JMAG-Express in improving efficiency in your motor design work.

Issue 3 How to Perform Detailed Motor Design
This series features descriptions of our thoughts about motor design, targets beginning motor designers and provides information about design themes for those seeking to acquire basic knowledge about the subject. In the previous issue we discussed initial designs, arranging concept design plans as a starting point for detailed designs. In this edition, the third and last entry in the series, we will look at detailed designing for final designs.Trade-offs are a key factor when it comes to detailed designs and they also happen to be areas in which JMAG-Designer and JMAG-Express excel. By describing case studies developed through trial and error while using JMAG-Designer or JMAG-Express we plan to provide hints that will help you move ahead with detailed design of motors.
Issue 1 Thermal Analysis Solutions
Thermal design of a motor now places increasing importance on compactness and high density, both for the motor and its periphery, forcing electrical circuit designers to always keep in mind issues such as heat generation and heat release. This article will be the first of a series of two articles about basic solutions needed as thermal countermeasures, centering on JMAG thermal analysis functions and taken from the viewpoint of an electrical circuit designer's approach to thermal design.
JSOL Activity Report
Recent initiations with iron loss analysis
Iron loss evaluation in magnetic field analysis has had many issues. From our recent initiations with this issue, we would like to introduce our method of initiations with iron loss evaluations of direct current bias magnetism.
Fully Mastering JMAG
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.
JMAG Product Partner Introduction
- MapleSim Connector for JMAG-RT
MapleSim is a system level simulator with excellent reputation. The richness of the library is especially worth noting, and it is a great honor for JMAG-RT models to be added to their expansive collection. We asked MapleSim on their strengths and the advantages of coupling with JMAG-RT.
