Electric Motor & Air Compressor – Dynamic simulation demo/preview

This is a model I made quite some years back to model the stability of an air compressor driven by an electric motor. The purpose was also to try to select the motor parameters, transmission ratios, energy loss in the flexible couple. I will make the Excel file available at a later date.

  1. Hello George, your work looks awesome! I am working in the renewable energy field and it is quite difficult to find good resource simulation in excel. I personally like the functionally of excel given that I build the financial models for these power plants there.

    It would be great if you could build a solar / wind power plant based on specific parameters such as orientation / wind speed / sun irradiation…


  2. What are you trying to control in the motor?

  3. Hi George. This is so mind-blowing. What a magnificent work!!! I am now building a motor control model by using only excel and hope you can help me a little bit.

    Best regards,


  4. Hello my name is Luis and I am in a engineer project for excel 2013. I can not complete my solar system because I need some formulas. Any help available please
    Thank you

  5. I am setting up an upgraded download mechanism. About the import of acoustic data to Excel, I need to do some research. There are ways to do that but I need to find an easy way without expensive programs.

  6. Hello. Where is the link to the Electric Motor/Air Compressor spreadsheet? Also, in the Fourier series, is there a way to capture sound with Excel so a FT could be preformed on that data? Thank you for the spreadsheets, very educational.

  7. Dear George,
    outstanding Job. Can you please send me the file on rishabh.mishra@siemens.com as i am learning now days excel programming and have to do something for air compressors.

  8. Sorry, Arul. I need to update the site. I am more on facebook nowadays. I work hard on my new models though.

  9. Hi George. very extraordinary job. can you send files or tutorials that I can learn ?
