JMAG Users Conference

Conference Outline

Host : JSOL Corporation
Date : Tuesday, December 8 - Wednesday, December 9, 2015
Venue : Tokyo Conference Center - Shinagawa

The JMAG Users Conference is not only known for unique user case studies and partner exhibitions, but it is also an opportunity for users to evaluate JMAG development policies. We have received frank opinions from many users regarding the current functions, support, and future development policies. Developments in JMAG are pursued with reference to these valuable opinions.
For those who were not able to participate last year, join us this year to make the best of JMAG. We would like to start off with the introduction of the JMAG Users Conference held in Japan.


We invited Hokkaido University professor, Hajime Igarashi, and University of Glasgow Emeritus Professor, T.J.E. Miller for the keynote speech, and had 13 sessions by JMAG users, totalling 33 presentations. Their presentations covered the latest topics, case studies using JMAG, as well as points they had the most difficulty such as with development results and the process. We received input from participants saying it helped in "understanding the recent market situation" and "knowing the fact that they had difficulties with similar issues."

Poster Exhibition

From introducing the analysis techniques to troubleshooting, 15 posters were on display for the duration of the conference.
The posters showed everything from the basics of electromagnetic analyses, which allow physical phenomena to be understood, to steps detailing how to use JMAG. We emphasized not just conveying information, but communication as well. We hoped that by having JMAG developers available to answer questions and offer analysis hints, the posters could be more easily understood.
Development for JMAG-Designer Ver 15.0 was focused on adding functions for supporting optimization designs and improving usability. On top of introducing the new features, we were also able to listen to what everybody would like us to develop in future versions. Regarding the introduction of the improved post-function, needed for performing a multi-faceted results analysis, we received the following positive feedback: "Having all the documents for the post-function served a great reference". We also introduced various case studies for multiphysics analyses that are thought of by many as something they would like to do, but because of their difficulty they don't know how to get started. We received comments such as "I can't believe that could be analyzed", and "I want to learn more about methods for performing even more detailed analyses".
We received comments from those who visited our poster exhibition such as "Because they were on display the entire time, I was able to look at them in detail", and "All the information I needed to really get started using JMAG was available to me". We hope we can continue to give valuable information to our users.

01 Introduction of JMAG-Designer Ver.15.0 Function
JMAG-Designer Ver.15.0 was released in December 2015. Development for Ver 15.0 was focused on adding functions for supporting optimization calculations and improving usability. This poster introduced the new functions provided in the new version such as improved optimization functions, enhanced parametric analysis functions, and a better geometry editor.
02 Using scripts for efficient analyses Function
By using the script function to automate repetitive operations, the analysis workflow can be made more efficient. Methods to partially automate operations that slow down your workflow will be introduced. Automatic recording functions and printed manuals are combined and usage methods were shown using case studies.
03 Analyzing results from various perspectives with the post function Function
The post function has various display functions and analysis functions Ver. 15.0 has many improvements such as additional graph functions and improved display for multi-case analysis results. A few of the functions thought to be useful were introduced in detail.
04 How to select hardware environments suitable for high parallel calculation HPC
To keep analysis times from increasing as the scope of the analysis model increases, JMAG offers High Parallel Solver (MPP solver, GPU solver). To fully display the capabilities of these solvers, it is important to select hardware suitable for each solver. This poster explained what to look out for when choosing your hardware.
05 Improving the automatic mesh generation function Modeling
The automatic mesh generation aims to continually improve robustness. Some recent improvements are the addition of the automatic healing function for CAD data and a more robust tetrahedral mesh generation engine. This poster introduced the details of some of the recent improvements we have been working on.
06 Multiple case calculation using cluster environments HPC
To perform up to hundreds of evaluation cases, using cluster environments composed of multiple computers is especially appealing. In order to make this computing environment even easier to use, JMAG comes with a specialized interface and a post function. This poster introduced functions and use methods to achieve efficient multi-case calculations for a cluster environment, from performing calculations to result evaluation.
07 Geometry modeling for parametric analyses Function
JMAG comes prepared with a framework to perform an evaluation on the geometry of a machine using parameters. To change geometry as intended in a parametric analysis, constraint conditions must be used to skillfully define geometry. This poster introduced effective functions for these geometry definitions and how to properly use them.
08 Material modeling appropriate for actual machinery Modeling
Material modeling methods for a magnetic field analysis are introduced. Methods to model magnetic properties as average magnetic properties, methods to perform modeling with increment permeability in order to evaluate inductance during direct current superimposition, and methods to perform modeling that include minor loops were shown. In addition, modeling that accounts for the causes of residual strain and stress that occur during production were also touched upon.
09 Solenoid analysis case study Case study
For each evaluation item of an electromagnetic solenoid, a use case is thoroughly explained, from items that can easily evaluation thrust force for each plunger position, to characteristics evaluations combined with controls.
10 Linear motor analysis case study Case study
Cogging evaluations accounting for skew and eddy current effects on thrust force are explained with case studies. In addition, modeling methods for accurate, fast analyses are also shown.。
11 Introduction to analysis functions for induction motors Case study
Methods to properly model an induction motor for the purpose of its analysis were explained through the lens of evaluation methods and desired accuracy. Methods to account for end ring resistance in a 2D analysis and methods for starting characteristics evaluation coupled with control models were shown.

In addition to magnetically evaluating electric electronic equipment design, heat, vibration, and other evaluations are also essential, placing a high degree of importance on multiphysics analyses. This poster introduced multiphysics analysis case studies which can be performed using JMAG

JMAG Users Conference in Japan

Seminars and Development Boards

Together with the presentations from JMAG's technical partners, demonstrations were given so JMAG can be even better used. Because JMAG's functions were introduced through the developer's presentations, we felt this was a great opportunity to get to know JMAG on a deeper level.
This year we used simple models to introduce the always popular iron loss analyses so beginners could also understand as well, while also demonstrating result differences when using various analysis methods. It seemed everybody especially took note of our introduction to direct current magnetic properties. Some participants told us that participating in seminars enabled them to resolve current job issues they were having.
We plan to give more seminars that aid in resolving issues.
Titled "Development plans made by everyone", we exhibited a development board in which everybody could freely write their opinions. We received all kinds of feedback from our attendees. The opinions we received will serve as a basis for our future development plans.

Day 1: Tuesday, December 8th, 2015 in the afternoon

(Seminar1) Design exploration using JMAG
Design exploration using multi-case calculations has been advancing in order to satisfy various design requirements for electronic machines. In addition to JMAG's conventional approach of using orthogonal tables with response curve solvers, genetic algorithms and directly interfacing with distributed processing systems is also being implemented. Detailed case studies were used to introduce these functions and how to use them.
(Seminar2) Function to evaluate obtained analysis results
Creating analysis data allows results to be obtained. That being said, being unable to evaluate how these results came about will result in an insufficient understanding of the analysis results. Useful functions for evaluate results were introduced.
(Seminar3) How to use the geometry modeling function in JMAG
There are a multitude of ways to create geometry, and even if the same geometry is made, the functions used to create it differs from person to person. However, being knowledgeable of different creation methods can lead to making better geometry. In the past year, we have made significant improvements to functions in the JMAG geometry editor. We will hold a demo showing how to create an actual model while using new functions as well.
(Seminar4) How to approach mesh modeling
An absolute requirement for finite element analysis is mesh creation. Calculation accuracy and required calculation costs change dramatically depending on how the mesh is created. This seminar introduced basic processes to efficiently create mesh that can be calculated in a short amount of time while also maintaining the required calculation accuracy.
(Thoughts pertaining not only to JMAG but magnetic field analyses in general were shared in regard to mesh obtained by magnetic flux distribution, eddy current distribution, and electromagnetic force calculations.)

Day 2: Wednesday, December 9th, 2015 in the afternoon

(Seminar5) The basics of iron loss analysis
JMAG has many ways to analyze iron loss, from using iron loss maps based on measurement data, to evaluating eddy currents inside laminated steel sheets while accounting for hysteresis loops, as well as a combination of these methods. This seminar explained the results and differences of applying each method, by using a simple model so even those new to analysis could understand.
(Seminar6) Introduction of the parametric analysis function and how to use it
In JMAG, parameters can be changed for not only dimensions and geometry, but also for analysis conditions, materials, and post processes. Ver. 15.0 now allows the parameters for point sequence data to also be modified. A demonstration was performed which explained in detail the parametric analysis functions and how to use them. using
(Seminar7) Running structural analysis with JMAG
It goes without saying how important evaluations of electromagnetic phenomena are for designing electric machines, but structural evaluations such as strength and vibration characteristics are just as vital. JMAG also has structural analysis functions for performing structural evaluations, and Ver. 15.0 now allows initial stress to be accounted for in an analysis. This seminar introduced JMAG's structural analysis functions using case studies using only basic knowledge for structural analyses.
(Seminar8) Beginner's guide to using scripts
Scripts are an indispensable tool that can enable the automation of various tasks, from performing basic repetitive operations to coupling with other applications.
Using JMAG-Designer's automated script function alongside the manual is the key to enabling automation.
This seminar introduced methods to put target processes in a script using the manual and automated script function new in Ver. 15.0 using a case study.

JMAG Users Conference in Japan


In anticipation of the all new JMAG-Designer Ver.15.0 being released, we held a demonstration at our booth. Users were able to preview the new features and improved functions, and we hoped everybody could experience for themselves how much easier it is to use JMAG.
We were very surprised by large amount of written input we received from the monitors for our motor design handbook. The handbook will go on sale this year. We will release more information in the days ahead, so stay tuned.

JMAG Users Conference in Taiwan

Conference Outline

Date : Tuesday, August 25, 2014
Venue : GIS NTU Convention Center (Taipei : Taiwan)

JMAG Users Conference in Taiwan

The JMAG Users Conference was held in the GIS NTU Convention Center in Taipei on August 25th. From universities to electronic manufactures, over 70 organizations attended the conference.
50% of the participants came from universities (professors and students), 25% were existing customers, and the last 25% accounted for potential customers. The large number of university participants can be attributed to "Future JMAGer (JMAG User) Cultivation", one of the strategies employed by the event organizer and Taiwan distributor Flotrend. Their aim is to allow university students to get a feel for JMAG's technical capabilities and ease of use in hope of them to continuing to use JMAG even after they start their professional career.
We also had many presenters, such as Nidec Corporation Research and Development Center, Taiwan, and also various research institutions and prestigious universities.
Universities and national research centers in Taiwan aim to serve as a hub for technical information; both the participants and presenters offer a community which is slightly different than Japan's. Targeting universities for potential customers isn't a viable strategy in Japan; we learned a lot from the activities of the Taiwan distributors.

JMAG Users Conference in USA

Conference Outline

Host : POWERSYS Inc.
Date : Wednesday, October 21 - Thursday, October 22, 2015
Venue : THE WESTIN SOUTHFIELD DETROIT (Southfield, America)

JMAG Users Conference in USA

Use of JMAG has been growing in America as well, and this marks the third year we have held a users conference here. This year a two-day users conference was held in Detroit, America's automotive capital.
The first day was Technical Day, covering technologies with considerable interest related to electromagnetic field analysis. Solutions and related technologies were covered. A wide range of topics were covered, from theoretical topics such as increasing analysis accuracy, to other advanced topics covering multiphysics and design optimization calculations, but this was far from a one-way conversation; participants shared many of their honest opinions and requests.
On the second day, six organizations and research groups held presentations and shared their case studies. Organizations representing America such as General Motors and Michigan State University gave presentations, giving us a peak into actual JMAG projects and how JMAG has made its way into the realm of university education. Extremely advanced machinery and phenomena were exhibited during the presentations; innovation from a technical aspect and the expected role of JMAG to analyze these innovations was incorporated into these enriching presentations.
A total of approximately 70 people attended the meeting, but regular participants and staff held technical talks not only in the main hall, but in the side rooms as well, making for a very exciting two days. It was very reassuring for the staff to see such a lively event being created by JMAG users overseas, and it lifted our spirits by continuing to provide value in order to meet their expectations.

JMAG Users Conference in China

Conference Outline

Host : IDAJ-China Co., LTD.
Date : Tuesday, November 24, 2015
Venue : Grand Soluxe Zhongyou Hotel (Shanghai, China)

JMAG Users Conference in China

The annual users conference hosted again this year by JMAG's China distributor IDAJ in Shanghai. Over 60 users attended, coming from industries such as local automobile and electronics manufacturers. Two engineers from JSOL also joined the conference to exchange information and engage in lively discussions about JMAG.
This year's conference had the largest user turnout so far, and we felt how much effort our distributor had put into working with local businesses. The number of participating users continue to grow every year, and JMAG's core user base also continues to take shape.
Free discussions were held the first day of the conference. IDAJ and JSOL put their brains to the test and tried to resolve an array of difficult questions fielded by the users. When we couldn't come up with an answer, other users chimed in with their ideas, giving way to a lively discussion. It was anything but orderly, but it truly was a "user's" conference.
The focus of second day was JMAG user case studies, and IDAJ presented the new version of JMAG and a FAQ. From JSOL, Hiroyuki Sano presented a JMAG development roadmap, and Tetsuya Hattori presented analysis technology trends. During the user case studies, China's top automobile manufacturer FAW presented a memorable case study on the development of motor systems for hybrid cars. Having an excellent command of JMAG, difficult analyses were tackled, which collected a lot of attention from other participants. Other user case studies showed great mastery of JMAG; it was apparent how IDAJ always goes above and beyond with their support. It is a challenge for JSOL to even better support the activities of our distributor.
Of course, we received many feature requests. We hope that we can develop these requests in the future.

The JMAG Users conference is held in many different cities. We hope that those of you who couldn't attend, and of course also those of that those of you did attend this year will attend a future conference held in one of the cities.
We hope that your time spent at the conference was a fulfilling experience.
