Manatee comes with a complete set of electrical machines templates to be able to quickly define the magnetic circuit geometry. Predefined slot shapes and magnet shapes allows to perform parameter sweeps on the topology.
The winding pattern is automatically defined using star of slot method, widely used by electrical engineers. Special slot or magnet pocket geometries can be defined using slot .dxf import and magnet pocket .dxf import features.
Manatee also comes with a series of electrical machines that have been already defined and used for validation purposes (e.g. Toyota Prius, Audi e-Tron). Manatee is compatible with Pyleecan open-source software, so any electrical machine that has been defined in Pyleecan can be imported in Manatee.
The electrical machine can be defined by both electrical engineers and mechanical engineers. Electrical machine files can be easily shared among engineers as .json files.
