Electric Machine Hairpin Windings

Electric Machines Hairpin Windings.

Automotive traction motors are increasingly making use of hairpin winding technology.

In MASTA 13 users will be able to choose to implement hairpin windings as an alternative to the already available random round windings option.

In Electric Machines mode, a new property Winding Type has been added. This allows to select between Round Conductors and a Hairpin winding.

With Hairpin selected, the number of layers and desired number of parallel paths can be selected and MASTA’s automated winding algorithm will produce hairpin windings designs with strong symmetry where possible.

The user is free to customize this configuration. MASTA will prevent non-viable designs from being implemented and will warn the user if their winding exhibits weak symmetry.
