CUSTOM ROTATING ELECTRICAL MACHINE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING
VICUS is the best partner for innovation projects for developing custom rotational electrical machine.
We have designed and built custom machines for very hard conditions, working as direct drive submersible motors, for tunnel thruster application, as well as field weakening machines for land vehicle drive with water jacket cooling among other projects.
During the last years, VICUS made an effort developing direct drive permanent magnet machines technology, we represent the last step on R&D based on a tradition when one of our sister companies started dealing with electrical machines back in 1956.
Each new design start with the implementation of the client specifications in a very developed own analytical software, which realizes the search of the best machine, touching different points of view:
– Electromagnetic design
– Mechanical design
– Thermal design
After this preliminary analytical design stage, the machine is checked and optimized again with CFD and FEM commercial software.
For this optimization we use very well-known software: Electromagnetic software Cedrat Flux, FEM analysis software FEMAP NASTRAN, the CAD Siemens NX, and thermal CFD Star CCM+.
Our capacity covers also the manufacturing and testing of electrical machines in our own test bench.
