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.

Возможности решения

Electrification

Driven by the need to lower emissions and noise, the global heavy equipment market is transitioning to hybrid, electric, and even hydrogen powertrains, impacting all parts of the supply chain. These newly deployed technologies in the heavy equipment sector strongly impact the engineering process. Defining the right electrified machine design is complex and requires engineers to learn and increase their expertise in a new domain. The right design should also allow end-users in the construction, agricultural, or mining field to meet or exceed usual performance levels while ensuring the machine complies with stricter standards for noise and gas emissions.

Internal Combustion Engine Design & Controls

Design and optimize the complete internal combustion engine, including controls, and study integration with fuel injection subsystems, engine thermal management, electrical devices and powertrain components. You can also investigate alternative engine architectures and concepts.
