The Mechanisms Section has provided a continuous support to industry for many years in order to improve the competitiveness of electric motor suppliers in Europe. Several activities have been initiated or will be started soon to enlarge the catalogue of space qualified European electric motors. Special attention is given to the harmonisation process.
In this context, the Mechanisms Section has developed the capabilities to perform modelling and simulation of electromagnetic systems for use in the relevant components and sub-assemblies.
The goal of these in-house activities is to provide a complementary service to industry and ESA project teams for the design, optimisation and verification of critical electromechanical hardware.
The software used to perform the analyses are:
