Leuven, Belgium, 7 May 2012 – World leader in test and mechatronic system simulation, LMS International, today announced its presence at EVS 26, the Electric Vehicle Symposium, to be held in Los Angeles, California, May 6-9 2012. LMS will take part in the show through a poster session as well as a presence on booth # 1250.
LMS International will present a 90 minute poster lecture on a very hot topic, the “Impact of passenger thermal comfort and electric devices temperature on range: a system simulation approach”. This presentation will highlight the benefits of a system simulation approach, using LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim, to estimate the impact of various technologies of cabin heating and cooling on both the cabin temperature and the driving range.
LMS International will also be available for further questions and discussion at EV France’s booth # 1250. EV France is a consortium of top French automotive manufacturers, suppliers, clusters and research laboratories working in the field of hybrid / electric vehicles, advanced batteries and infrastructure supports.
EVS 26 is a great opportunity for LMS to showcase its unique mechatronic system simulation offer to support the development of electric drive technologies. New vehicle architectures such as those found in Hybrid Electric and Battery Electric Vehicles are equipped with ever more complex control and electronic systems that change the set-up of the vehicle development process. LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim, the unrivalled multi-physics system simulation platform, combined with its world-leading Vehicle Energy Management solutions enable important design decisions to be made that impact emission and fuel consumption early in the development, while maintaining or even improving the drivability and the passengers’ thermal comfort. Such early concept analysis at system level allows trade-off studies for myriad driving cycles including parameters like electrification of auxiliaries, hybrid control systems, brake energy recovery and exhaust heat recovery. The LMS Vehicle Energy Management methodology ranges from full vehicle modeling to component modeling and detailed component design.
