This paper presents the first open-source development project for the electromagnetic design optimization of electrical machines and drives named Pyleecan – PYthon Library for Electrical Engineering Computational ANalysis. This paper first details the objectives of Pyleecan open-source development project, and the object-oriented architecture of the software that has been developed and released. Then it reviews and compares the available free and open-source software used during the multiphysic design of electrical machines including electromagnetics, heat transfer and vibro-acoustic analysis.
