The 3 Pivotal Steps to Master Advanced Coupling

Finding the optimal solution to a design challenge almost always requires a complex coupling process. CoTherm, our coupling software, allows you to plan, control, and monitor multi-physics simulations for complex transient simulations like drive cycle scenarios. In order for advanced simulations to be worth your while, it is important to be familiar with the process and prerequisites so you can set yourself up for success. As we transition from discussing the importance of coupling as a whole to the necessity of accurate inputs, we will look at the specific things you must do well in CoTherm to get successful results from advanced simulations....

3 Strategies for Battery Packaging, Cooling, and System Integration for Electric Vehicles

The battery has emerged as the most prominent energy storage device to meet changing consumer needs in both the electric mobility and stationary energy storage industries.  In fact, all major vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have goals to aggressively electrify their fleets, adding electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs) to their selections—some are even promising to go fully electric in just a few years. As a result, many engineers who have typically worked on conventional vehicles are now being asked to work on EVs and HEVs. As these engineers face the challenges of designing new technologies, the need for modeling and simulation tools for the creation of robust thermal management strategies is critical....

Simulating Transient Drive Cycles: The Benefits and Barriers

Simulating a drive cycle can have many benefits. Several hot topics right now include improving fuel economy and emissions measures, but there's another way simulating a drive cycle can help you optimize a new vehicle design. A drive cycle simulation can help you predict transient thermal behavior and maximize the capabilities of powertrain and exhaust components. To do this, you need to simulate the thermal activity of these components over a drive cycle—which isn't easy to do....
