Many car makers have launched ambitious decarbonization programs to reach at least 55% net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. One axis of these programs is to equip at least and sometimes more than 50% of their automotive fleet with electric motors.

In this context, the acceleration of Electric vehicle (EV) and Electromagnetic (EM) designs has become an important leverage to reduce time-to-market and foster innovation.

As expert in electrification since 2002, Powersys offers a complete solution to support this acceleration and help OEMs and Tiers 1 to:
– Decrease the time to design new electric propulsion
– Perform Multiphysics simulation with different tools and departments
– Run thousands of complex simulations in parallel.

With the objective to show the latest developments of JMAG in motor design simulation, to present real user cases studies and to practice on JMAG, Powersys will hold the 2022 E-motor Design Conference from September 27th to 29th in NICE (France).

The event will be structured as follows:
2022 E-motor Design UGM | Sep. 27 th at 9 am to Sep. 28 th at 12 pm (FREE)
E-motor Design workshop | Sep. 28th at 2.00 pm to Sep. 29th at 3.30 pm (FEES: from 1,400€)

This event will bring together electrical & electromechanical power system experts, software users and developers as well as Powersys’ team.

Joel Wenger

  Joel Wenger, 30 years of age, is currently working for Drivetek AG as a Simulation and E-Motor Engineer. His background is in automotive engineering, and he got his master’s degree in engineering from Bern UAS under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Andrea Vezzini. As a part-time employee in Dr. Vezzini’s laboratory, he started using JMAG Designer around 2017 and has used the tool ever since. For his thesis “Development and Optimization of a Highly Compact, Dynamic Linear Drive”, he extensively used JMAG Designer and its optimization features to design and optimize a linear actuator for a very specific medical appliance. In 2019, he started his position at Drivetek AG, with a main focus on electrical machine design for high-performance applications. During this period, he implemented a lot of changes to the design process, moving from manual optimization to fully automated, “in-the-loop” machine and inverter co-optimization. His programming skills, particularly in Python, come in very handy when setting up this rather complex design process, consisting of JMAG Designer working in conjunction with a lot of specialized scripting tools. In 2021, he started a part-time master’s program in the field of data science, with a focus on machine learning and AI. This allows him to further push the optimization process and allows him to develop even more advanced machine and system optimization tools in the near future.
