Find out what’s new in our latest major software update MASTA 12
For nearly 20 years MASTA has been the trusted solution for mechanical and electromechanical analysis of transmission systems. We are proud to introduce to you MASTA for electromagnetic analysis of electric machines and integrated electrified drivetrains.
MASTA 12 introduces brand new modelling and analysis capabilities to keep you at the forefront of an industry forever pushing its own boundaries. From traditional heavy industry to cutting edge electric machines, MASTA 12 has you covered whatever your application.
This latest release builds on the strengths and successes of previous versions and includes several advanced enhancements.
Below summarizes the major updates in the latest release of MASTA, for further details get in touch with us today.
Design electric machines for increased power density, increased efficiency, refined NVH, reduced cost and reduced weight. MASTA 12 includes brand new capabilities for the electromagnetic design and analysis of electric machines:
A unique integrated solution within a single package for the calculation of electric machine and gear excitations and the dynamic response of the full system to them.
Electric machine dynamic forces and torque are calculated via MASTA 12’s new electric machine capabilities. Gear transmission error and misalignment excitation forces calculated by MASTA’s high fidelity Loaded Tooth Contact analyses. Dynamic response of full system electric powertrain models seamlessly calculated using MASTA’s frequency domain NVH analysis.
A new six degree of freedom per rolling element ball bearing model. Removes the need for raceway control assumptions, which are assumptions commonly made at high speed.
The model is coupled with MASTA’s System Deflection analysis leading to more accurate results at high speed and including accurate calculation of power loss with a breakdown of contributing components. This advanced model includes a visco-plastic plus asperity effect lubricant friction and dry friction model. All major contributions to the forces on the rolling elements are included, including: Contact normal force, gyroscopic moment, centrifugal force, hydrodynamic drag, elastic rolling resistance moment, hydrodynamic rolling and pressure forces, sliding friction. A related fully dynamic model is in development which includes all contributions in this quasi static model together with a cage model. This dynamic model will be available in an upcoming version of MASTA.
