Using Cosmos for Electric Motor Rotation Analysis

I am interested in seeing if Cosmos Motion can be used to analyze a rotational system such as an electric motor with a harmonic forcing function. I am looking to work on a design of a rotational damper to privide a smoother velocity profile. I will need to model the forces/torques applied to the rotor shaft as well as the rotational spring constant of the rotor and the possible damping constants of the device I am working on in order to evaluate. I would like to know if this is possible in Cosmos Motion, has anyone used it for this, and how accurate can the solutions be driven assuming correct assumptions for parameters mentioned? Ideally I would like to be able to change the design and re-run the analysis to obtain a velocity profile - without having to verify with a physical emperiment for each interation I want to run. I am hoping to arrive at a closer answer faster, which I know is what FEA and simulation can do
