Optimizing power electronics and software for xEV thermal systems


Optimizing power electronics and software for xEV thermal systems

In this webinar, we overview an efficient, cross-functional approach for xEV thermal management engineering. We cover plant modeling, controls development, control software lifecycle management, and handling the intersection of these domains to facilitate effective inter-team collaboration.

Thermal management in an xEV context is a challenging systems engineering exercise. E-powertrain systems often demand a complex thermal management approach, with multiple components requiring varying amounts of cooling (battery, motors, inverter, and possibly an ICE in HEV architectures). Electronic components are generally sensitive to temperature fluctuations, while heat is a precious commodity drawn largely from battery-stored energy that must be carefully managed and recycled in order to maximize range.

This webinar illustrates an engineering approach to help thermal engineering teams meet these challenges head-on, and deliver e-powertrain thermal systems that meet requirements reliably and cost-effectively.

Main topics:

  • Thermal systems modeling & physical simulation
  • Controls software lifecycle management
  • Collaboration between controls software development and thermal systems modeling teams
