Not with standing the hype surrounding electric vehicles powered by expensive brushless inverter-fed machines, the commutator motor remains one of the most important of all electric machines. It powers almost all commuter trains worldwide. It is by far the most important auxiliary motor in automobiles, for fuel pumps, windscreen wipers, blowers, fans, etc. As an AC motor it is common in power tools, in washing machines, in floor-care products, and in food processing. The design of the commutator motor is a true "multi-physics" challenge. It involves not only the normal mechanical CAD, but...
Simulation of a vane cell oil pump
For some time now, regulated vane cell oil pumps have been used when necessary in engines for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. This new technology requires adjustment to the established simulation methods in order to achieve optimum efficiency and operational reliability. The kinematics of vane cell pumps is based on a combination of translatory and rotary motion. The challenge for simulations lies in the substantial change in chamber volume in conjunction with a virtually incompressible fluid and complex inflow and outflow geometries. A basic requirement for these simulations is the calculation...
The InDesA Virtual Test Bench
As InDesA has specialized on the simulation and analysis of complex flow and heat transfer systems with STAR-CCM+ such as the under-hood hot soak simulation for passenger cars , it has became evident that great care had to be taken to implement auxiliary components such as heat exchangers, cooling fans and coolant pumps in order to accurately predict the overall system behavior. InDesA has therefore started to build up its Virtual Test Facility Center to investigate hydraulic and heat transfer performance of automotive auxiliary components. In the scope of this investigation auxiliary devices...
