Vehicle Energy Management

While eco-friendly vehicle concepts are strategic for OEMs and suppliers, drivers are still expecting driving pleasure to be present. Measures taken to optimize energy efficiency should have no effect on key performances like noise, drivability or ride comfort. Being able to assess early in the design and engineering process the impact of system architecture choices on the global energy balance and on key attributes performance enables to frontload design decisions and maintain time-to-market. 

Siemens PLM Software offers a unique combination of system, 3D and CFD simulation tools, along with engineering services, allowing you to find the right balance before a physical prototype exists. You can then digitally explore the physics and the control systems behind various vehicle subsystems to ensure full-vehicle energy balance and optimization.

Tighter design constraints, increased systems complexity and stricter regulations regarding energy efficiency make vehicle energy management an increasingly challenging but yet essential engineering domain. These highly complex, interrelated problems has to be solved across the entire design cycle if a vehicle is to meet stringent regulatory standards and customer requirements. Accomplishing this while also reducing costs requires a new approach based on simulation-driven development. With this development method, you can digitally explore various architectures and configurations to find the best trade-offs between different performance attributes, evaluating both the physics and control systems of different subsystems, before a prototype even exists.

Siemens PLM software offers a unique combination of system simulation, 3D CAE and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tools, as well as experienced engineering services, to offer capabilities ranging from benchmarking and target setting for energy management, to architectural sizing and control law strategy, to design exploration.
