The 2020s is truly the decade of electrification! Thanks to rapidly dropping battery prices and the growing number of countries announcing plans to ban the sale of new ICE models in the coming decades, the share of electrification for passenger cars and trucks is projected to be 30% or more by 2030. Electrification, however, is bringing significant disruptions to the automotive ecosystem and introducing daunting new engineering challenges for OEMs and suppliers alike. What will it take for a company to become a technology leader and bring electric vehicles that deliver the desired drive range, performance, and comfort quickly and cost-effectively?
This 60-minute Webinar discusses how a digital twin approach with Simcenter using model-based engineering and integrated processes for design, simulation, optimization, and verification can help you make the right engineering decision on:
- What vehicle architecture to choose from the virtually unlimited possibilities that (H)EVs give us.
- How to deal with complex engineering problems posed by mechanical/electronic/software integration from seemingly simple systems such as e-axles or e-drives, where the electric motor, gearbox, inverter, and control logic are all packaged in a single unit. Alternatively, integrate different thermal management systems that at first may seem unrelated, such as battery cooling and HVAC.
- How to manage the development of many variants based on the same architecture to cater for a wide range of customers.
- Managing the balance between that all-important driving range and charging time with driving dynamics, noise and vibration, thermal comfort, and durability.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation, which includes examples of how various companies are accelerating their product development and unlocking innovations with Simcenter for electric vehicle engineering.
