About the Customer

As a motor control consulting firm with more than 45 years of motor control and inverter design
experience, ZT InnovationsTM offers unmatched expertise in their field. They not only design
algorithms but also the software and hardware platforms. ZT Innovations prides themselves on
their passion for motor control design as well as the out-of-box solutions they provide for many
industries including electric bikes, medical drills, drones, compressors, and more. Whether it is a
new system design, optimizing existing components, or more complex nonlinear design scenarios,
ZT Innovations will help you get your motor running.

Their Challenge

Most of ZT Innovations’ business comes from repeat customers and customer referrals, so their
reputation for delivering high quality results in a short amount of time is extremely important to
them. They found that many software tools on the market were lacking a complete solution for
their needs. ZT Innovations employed multiple tools for different steps in the process, therefore
each step happened sequentially, causing extended time to completion for their clients. The tools
that they employed required significant simulation time to accurately represent the physical system.

Our Solution

Altair® PSIM™, formerly Powersim, is known in the industry as a complete solution for simulation
of motor controls, microgrids, and power supplies. For ZT Innovations, PSIM checked all the
boxes. It allowed them to run a full system simulation in a single step, rather than the linear
process they were used to, which in turn shortened their simulation time exponentially.
In addition to speeding up their time to completion, they are now able to offer a more complete
solution, which adds value for their clients. The full system simulation capabilities allow them to
be a full-service provider when it comes to their specialty, motor control design. Eric Thomas,
Co-founder at ZT Innovations says, “We work with multidisciplinary systems, where electronics
and control blocks are combined, and we are confident that a simulation in PSIM realistically
represents the actual system.”


“We went from physical testing and fine tuning on the bench to a more efficient and scientific
process,” says Co-founder Jorge Zambada. ZT Innovations is able to run a full system simulation
in less than one minute of processing time. They also found significant time savings on the design
side because of their ability to work within a single tool for each step in their process.
