In this webinar we present simulation that facilitates the design and analysis of digital counterparts of components and systems, providing a comprehensive 3D digital experience.
E-mobility relies on electric machines powered by power converters that transform electrical energy into mechanical energy. Their design is steered by a wide range of performance, efficiency, and durability objectives, taking into account challenging environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, vibration, and electromagnetic interference. Despite relatively straightforward structures, achieving performance goals in traction applications involves interdependencies across multiple physics and domains.
Simulation offers an opportunity to address technical aspects in the early design stages when the cost of change is minimal. It helps to explore hypothetical scenarios without the need for physical prototypes, yielding insights that are not available through conventional measurement methods.
We demonstrate our power electronics engineering workflows using the study of the insulated-gate bipolar transistor module, a crucial component widely employed in inverter and charger designs. The presentation emphasizes the added value of electromagnetic compatibility/electromagnetic interference, thermal, system, and multiphysics simulations using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
In our electric drive engineering workflows, we highlight how the CAD-CAE connectivity can help explore design possibilities in early design stages, applying proven engineering knowledge. In particular, we discuss the use of a modular, fully parametric electric drive model for multiphysics, and multi-fidelity analyses.
