Electromagnetic Simulation for Electric Drivetrain

On Demand

This eseminar will discuss the requirements coming from the new generation of vehicles focusing on the design and optimization of electric drive and powertrain for which electromagnetic (EM) simulation plays a key role.

The automotive industry is in an essential state of flux; Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous driving, electric drive and wireless charging are the driving forces of today’s innovations. Electronics is transforming the automotive experience. With a prediction of 50% of the total automobile cost to come from electronics in the vehicle, it is critical to obtain optimized product designs within the tight constraints of costs and time to market.

Simulations can be used for virtual prototyping and testing, which benefits in realization of robust designs with regulatory compliance, saving cost and time to market.  


  • Electromagnetic simulations can be used as virtue prototyping of key components for the electric drivetrain, such as motors, batteries and inverters. Simulations help product design optimization, saving costs and time to market.
  • As all electronics have to comply with legal regulations, they must meet the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) requirements and ensure the safety of the driver and passengers in the car. Simulation as virtual testing of EMC/EMI will be discussed for the electric drivetrain.
  • Using SIMULIA CST Studio Suite technology, full vehicle simulation is made possible. The electronics can be virtual tested in the environment closer to reality. Simulation provides insights into the problems that will not be seen at component level.
