Thermal & Energy Management for E-Powertrain

Thermal & Energy Management for E-Powertrain

Powertrain development for hybrid and electric vehicle is pushing engineering complexity to another level. In addition to combustion engines, e-machines, batteries, generators and electrical wiring harness have to be studied individually but also when coming together, in order to evaluate performance levels during integration.

Siemens PLM Software solutions offer the appropriate multi-level approach to size and design all critical components involved in xEV architectures (internal combustion engine, electric machine, battery or transmission), but also to evaluate the system as a whole in order to capture the complexity of the system whilst addressing the thermal and energy management before building a physical prototype.

Designing hybrid and electric powertrains to deliver maximum range and optimal performance is a tough engineering challenge, given the complexity of systems involved. Electric systems and battery designs are evolving rapidly, with new materials being developed, and advanced battery management systems being implemented to monitor the SOC, SOH of the batteries. To achieve xEV architectures and vehicle that perform to the expected requirements levels in terms of range, drivability, comfort and safety, understanding the way subsystems interact together is key. Integrating battery, electric motors, inverters, generators with all other vehicle sub-systems at early stages of the design cycle enables to capture the global energy distribution and NVH performance for optimized attributes balancing. Being able to virtually explore the performance of any EV/HEV configuration is essential to keep time-to-market and development costs under control.

Siemens PLM Software offers a system-centric simulation approach together with strong engineering services to support your engineering efforts in developing hybrid and electric powertrain architectures. You can virtually explore and physically validate critical components and subsystems, as well as their performance during integration to meet range, drivability and performance expectations.
