Pioneering innovative electric powertrain architectures using multi-physics simulation


Pioneering innovative electric powertrain architectures using multi-physics simulation

The move towards electrification isn’t just about the change from a combustion engine to a hybrid or fully electric model using legacy architectures. It requires advanced engineering to reshape the vehicle concepts to reconcile conflicting requirements like maximum performance and range.

This session will explore how Magna Powertrain has implemented multi-physics, multi-level simulation approaches to predict the performance of dozens of innovative architectures while keeping costs and delays under control.

In this webinar:

  • Wolfgang Schweiger gives an overview of how Simcenter Amesim is used in the early development phase to increase the scope of architecture to evaluate and to select suitable gearbox concepts.
  • Christoph Gsenger describes their use of Simcenter Amesim to consolidate architecture conclusions by relying on test to analyze the resulting torque at different driving situations.
