A critical challenge in vehicle electrification design is the energy efficiency of the overall electric vehicle, primarily due to the various design choices for a large variety of parameters and conditions. Automotive manufacturers must prioritize thermal management to improve vehicle performance for safety, driving range, passenger comfort, and battery life span.
In this webinar, we will discuss solutions that can analyze thermal management and energy efficiency from component design to overall electric system integration using simulation tools with a digital twin of your electric vehicle. Then, we will detail how Simcenter system simulation helps get results over the EPA 5-Cycles. Register to watch now!
Simcenter solutions allow vehicle performance engineers to develop a digital twin of their electric vehicle to understand how design choices impact the vehicle's overall system thermal management for optimization. But the challenge for engineers in accelerating the vehicle design and development process is knowing and retaining the right level of high-fidelity results while leveraging fast simulation speed.
Electric vehicle system modeling includes the vehicle powertrain, the electric circuits, and the different subsystems cooling loops. Our Simcenter solutions enable system engineers to develop the vehicle architecture early in the design process, including the battery, power electronics, e-motor thermal management systems, HVAC, and cabin systems.
OEM engineering departments must consider climate conditions and dependency on the different vehicle subsystems under real-life driving conditions to improve overall energy efficiency. Using a system simulation solution, OEMs could get results over the EPA 5-Cycles procedure and understand the impact of driving cycles and climate on energy consumption and driving range.
