Projects - High Speed Electric Motors

High Speed Electric Motors

Both electromagnetic and mechanical finite element modelling are powerful tools for designers of electric machines. For high-speed applications, some examples of the areas where Best Solution can provide modelling support are: Rotor containment can losses (caused by modulation of rotor field by stator teeth) Rotor stress distribution resulting from shrink fitting of containment cans Rotor …

Best Solutin - Projects - Thermal Imaging Actuator

Thermal Imaging Actuator

Our mechanical design services enabled Best Solution to design a high-performance scanning actuator for a military thermal imaging application. The actuator was capable of very rapid reciprocating motion while requiring much lower power input than conventional motor technology. The internal geometry of the actuator was optimised using parametric finite element models, and the hardware performance …

Projects - Variable Reluctance Resolvers and Brushless Resolvers

Variable Reluctance Resolvers and Brushless Resolvers

Best Solution can provide bespoke designs for resolvers including variable reluctance resolvers, for specific customer requirements. We have produced designs for customers including 2 pole and 24 pole frameless (sometimes referred to as “slab” or “pancake” ) variable reluctance resolvers for rotor position sensing in motor control applications. Resolvers have been around for many years, …
