Balancing passenger comfort, range and safety attributes using system simulation

Evaluating battery cooling strategy using Simcenter Amesim

The global trend towards electrified vehicles brings new complex challenges, be it in terms of performance, battery safety and lifetime or range. The latest is a crucial factor for mass adoption of electric vehicles, but this should not be at the expense of passenger comfort.

The energy management of heating and air conditioning systems play a central role to ensure battery thermal management and cabin comfort while reducing power consumption. At the early design stage, engineers then have to validate design choices rapidly and develop associated high-level thermal management strategies.

In this webinar, we demonstrate how our Simcenter system simulation solutions will help you balance passenger comfort, range and safety attributes at early design stages. On a pull down case, we will illustrate the interest of using system simulation to:

  • Validate the sizing of the different components to ensure battery cooling and cabin pull down
  • Test different vehicle thermal management strategies
