Fuel Economy & Energy Management

Fuel Economy & Energy Management

Energy management decisions influence a variety of factors in heavy equipment development, from fuel consumption and emissions to powertrain choices and thermal system performance, such as HVAC and cooling systems. This is why it is so important to make the right energy management decisions on the vehicle level early in the conceptual phase. Later in the process, the final design can be balanced to optimize driver thermal comfort and fuel efficiency as well. Engineers can turn to 1D and CFD solutions to provide the scalable simulation tools that can help make the right energy management choices right from the start.

A tough and rather urgent issue for the heavy equipment industry is energy management, including fuel consumption, emission reduction, powertrain downsizing, hybrid and electrical alternatives and overall thermal optimization. Ideally, energy management decisions need to be taken during the first conceptual phases and this means using predictive engineering analytics and more specifically the Siemens PLM Software portfolio. Our simulation solutions are used to tackle complete conceptual studies as well as detailed subsystem and system-level performance validation. Our 1D solutions are an ideal place to start to explore how different powertrain choices, including hybrid and traditional configurations or hydraulic systems, might work in the full vehicle. For more detailed work, our 3D and CFD solutions can be used to investigate engine compartment cooling, including cooling fan efficiency, as well as optimizing interior thermal comfort. Another possibility is to combine these two solutions creating a co-simulation CFD and 1D model to examine the complete integrated energy management system, including controls strategy assessment. And finally, to make sure the design meets emission regulations, an additional CFD and 1D system simulation model can be developed.

Électrification

Poussé par la nécessité de réduire les émissions et le bruit, le marché des équipements lourds effectue une transition vers des systèmes de propulsion hybrides, électriques et même à hydrogène. Cette évolution a un impact sur toutes les étapes de la chaîne d'approvisionnement. Ces technologies nouvellement déployées dans le secteur des équipements lourds ont un impact important sur le processus d'ingénierie. Définir la conception d'une machine électrifiée la plus optimale est complexe et nécessite que les ingénieurs apprennent et fassent progresser leur expertise dans un nouveau domaine. Cette conception doit également permettre aux utilisateurs finaux dans le domaine de la construction, de l'agriculture ou de l'exploitation minière d'atteindre, voire, de dépasser les niveaux de performance habituels tout en garantissant que la machine respecte les normes plus strictes en matière de bruit et d'émissions de gaz à effet de serre.
