Thermal & Energy Management for Conventional Powertrain

Thermal & Energy Management for Conventional Powertrain

The overall complexity of the powertrain has significantly increased with the need to understand the detailed interaction of the individual sub-systems across a range of attributes. Improving fuel economy while reducing pollutant emissions implies deep engineering investigation to optimize powertrain energy management strategies, and ultimately how it impacts vehicle performance. 

Siemens PLM Software proposes a full-vehicle approach provided by our portfolio of system and 3D CFD simulation tools, along with our test and engineering services capabilities, to enable full traceability of powertrain energy balance.

With tighter packaging constraints and increasing part complexity, powertrain design is one that impacts on many other vehicle subsystems. Being able to have complete understanding of transmission performance and losses, engine air intake and in-cylinder combustion, engine thermal management strategies and the impact of all these subsystems choices on the global vehicle performance during integration is crucial.

Siemens PLM Software offers system and CAE simulation solutions combined with testing and engineering services capabilities, enabling a full vehicle approach that allows complete traceability of the powertrain energy balance. You can then digitally explore the complexity of finding the best trade-off between multiple performance attributes by working on both the physics and control systems of different subsystems, before a prototype exists.
