The number of electrical components in the automotive industry has grown exponentially over the past 60 years. But with the fierce development of the electric vehicle, electrified propulsion has led to high-voltage emissions and an increased number of wireless signal and data transmissions. Automakers must address the critical challenge of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) to ensure electric vehicles are safe and reliable.
Discover how OEM engineering departments can support electric wire harness design and verification using simulation in this on-demand webinar.
New power electronics system designs based on materials such as gallium nitride (GaN) are emerging, aiming at a higher level of performance. However, these new technologies also come with new EMC challenges and must be accurately understood. The Siemens Xcelerator portfolio is unique regarding electrified vehicle EMC analysis as it provides design and verification capabilities of all key electrical powertrain system components at different levels of abstraction. It also provides the tools needed for circuital electrical simulation of electric powertrain systems so that engineers can simulate the critical electrical currents up to several 100MHz in critical cables.
Electrification will introduce unwanted electromagnetic (EM) noise and affect EMC. When a system is compliant with EMC requirements, it functions correctly within its electromagnetic environment: the system is sufficiently immune to EM influences, both from outside and originating within itself. Using Siemens Simcenter solutions, engineers can build a full vehicle-level 3D model or digital twin, including wire harnesses with the highest EMC accuracy. With this integrated set of capabilities, engineers can adequately understand and mitigate EMC concerns efficiently and effectively.
