Speed Add-on modules

  • PC-FEA
  • HEEDS
The aim in developing PC-FEA has been to get the SPEED motor geometry to the meshing stage as fast and efficiently as possible resulting in minimizing the tedious data preparation that has limited the application of FE analysis in electric motor design in the past. PC-FEA is a fully-fledged finite-element analysis tool for 2D magneto-static analysis, with an efficient nonlinear solver and powerful post-processing and reporting capabilities. PC-FEA is a powerful finite-element program with wide range of commands that provide wide scope for specializing the analysis to the user’s needs. PC-FEA can be used with SPEED’s motor design programs for most of the standard analyses commonly undertaken with finite-element methods.
HEEDS® automates the design exploration process. With revolutionary search strategies available only in HEEDS, you can uncover new design concepts that improve products and significantly reduce development costs. Even engineers with very little design optimization experience can use HEEDS to discover optimal designs — in a fraction of the time it would take to perform even a handful of manual iterations. Design exploration software takes modeling and simulation to the next level by allowing users to determine appropriate values of variables that yield product designs that result in exceptional performance. Using HEEDS simplifies the design exploration process so all simulation engineers can discover better designs, faster. It helps unlock the full power of your electric machine design using SPEED so you can move beyond troubleshooting and verifying designs and use simulation to drive innovation and performance.
