SIMULATION FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Steering the Digital Future of Electric, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Driverless, connected cars are ushering in a new era of travel that is efficient, affordable, clean and green. Experts predict these systems will transform travel in the years to come and shape the future of mobility, smart cities, and interactive communities. Bringing this new generation of cars onto the road requires new vehicle innovators and OEM leaders alike to rethink the way we experience their products, and the way they engineer them.

The unique challenge posed by the integration of new technologies (including LiDAR and other advanced sensing devices, batteries, new broadband antennas, electric drives and power electronics), along with the need to improve efficiency, calls for new solutions and applications that will better integrate engineering disciplines to help engineers look at vehicle performance in a new, more holistic way.

Dassault Systèmes with its family of brands is tackling this very challenge with solutions and key technologies to design, evaluate and optimize EV in an interconnected, multidiscipline framework.

Battery Engineering

The battery of an electric vehicle is a highly complex system involving multiple and connected physics. CATIA, BIOVIA and SIMULIA are working together to bring a solution that truly connects mechanical and system design, materials and chemistry modeling, and performance assessment of battery cells, modules and packs.

Electric Drive Engineering

The electric drive is a much more complex system to design than it might appear to be. To meet design requirements, teams need an environment which will allow them to optimize designs by simultaneously taking into account noise and vibrations, thermal management of the heat dissipated by high rotation speeds and electromagnetics losses, proper lubrication of the integrated gearbox, etc.

Power Electronics Engineering

The main purpose of a Power Electronic system in an electric vehicle is to manage the transfer and conversion of electrical energy between the battery and various components of the vehicle such as an electric drive, on-board electronics, external charging system (plugin or wireless). Some of the main challenges to be addressed include thermal management and electromagnetic compliance
