Parametric 3D model to evaluate different motors

Electric motors generate heat during their operation as a result of both electrical and mechanical losses. This emitted heat is essential to be removed in order to ensure the proper operation of the motor. The dissipation of the heat is achieved in most cases through conductive cooling (housing of the motor). To increase the outer heat exchange surface between the housing and the cooling medium usually fins are placed on the housing. Apart from their power electric motors may differ in the housing geometry (i.e. dimension, number and size of the fins etc).

Optimization of an outdoor LED lamp post heat sink

A CFD analysis using Optimate+ has resulted in a 30% cost reduction of serially produced heat sinks.

Cyclone Lighting provides superior quality lamp posts for outdoor environments. As part of the continuous research and innovation for efficient products, Cyclone teamed up with Creaform to optimize the heat sink of a new LED lamp post model. The project consisted of using CFD simulations and optimization algorithms to find the most effective heat sink design for this new product.
