EMC Simulation of an Electrical Vehicle Powertrain

The automotive industry has recently experienced a tremendous push towards electrification and all OEMs are planning to develop new electric cars. Especially hybrid (HEV) and battery electric vehicles (BEV) are developed and needed to fulfill ambitious CO2 emission targets faced by OEMs. This paradigm shift poses completely new challenges in the development process of these cars. One of these new challenges is the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for such a vehicle.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to simulate the EMC of the electric power train of an electric vehicle. The simulation will be build up step by step from component to system to full vehicle level. We will start with the inverter then add a filter and demonstrate how the motor influences emission. A special section will be dedicated to cables as careful cable design is one of the keys to a compliant system. Finally, all components will be assembled into a virtual twin of the vehicle for EMC simulation.

Multiphysics Process for eDrive Engineering

Developing a high-performance eDrive to propel modern electric vehicles is an inherent multiphysics and multidisciplinary problem; involving multiple engineers with various backgrounds working on one design to achieve peak performance. Digital continuity allows the physical behavior of the final product to be virtually evaluated and optimized across multiple domains. These aspects shall be demonstrated within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by the example of an electric drive development cycle. The engineering typically starts from high-level requirements, which are going to be refined by running 1D simulation models. This information will then be used to create the detailed geometry, which is the basis for multiphysics simulation. Associativity between CAD and CAE and the orchestration of the simulation process will help to easily run loops to optimize the geometry of this complex system until the detailed requirements are validated successfully. When deployed with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, users innovate and accomplish more because they save time on model preparation and results tracking. This allows them to find and focus on the design changes that matter.

High-Speed PCB Simulation and Measurements

Simulation with CST Studio Suite, a SIMULIA simulation tool, made it possible for designs to be examined without the cost of constructing a prototype, and field visualization allow unexpected design behaviors to be identified by eye. For 3D simulation to be useful, the simulated results need to correlate with the measured data. A good agreement between the two is necessary to build confidence in the simulated data, which, however, can be a challenging task. In this presentation, there are several factors for a good correlation are addressed, in both frequency domain and time domain. For example, material properties must be modeled properly, but normally unknown at the frequencies of interest.

Materials/Mechanics Update

Materials modeling technology has been one of Abaqus’ traditional strengths and continues to be an active area of development, driven by customer needs for accurate modeling of complex material behaviors and processes. The 2021 RUM presentation in this video provides an update of new material modeling capabilities that have been added to the Abaqus solver recently.

While these capabilities can be quite powerful, proper characterization of the material model is key to increase the fidelity of the results and achieve optimal designs. Therefore, model parameters should be calibrated from test data to ensure that the model provides a correct representation of the material behavior for the application of interest. To this end, I encourage all of you to take a look at the latest enhancements to the Materials Calibration capabilities in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Rain Erosion and Repair of Wind Blades

Wind energy in India has grown intensively in the last decades. Wind turbines are subject to degradation and failure caused by rain and dust leading to a reduction in energy output. The blade degradation includes leading and trailing edge erosion, matrix cracks, delamination and structural damage. Predictive computational modelling of monsoon and dust caused degradation of WT blades and subsequent repair can help in deciding maintenance schedules.

Computational models for prediction of degradation due to rain on turbine blade coating combine the stochastic representation of rain at a location with impact and fatigue modeling to obtain damage in the blade. The rain model provides the size and velocity of the raindrop depending on the intensity of the rain. The stress distribution on the coating due to the impact of raindrops is analyzed as a fluid-solid interaction problem. The coating is modeled as a solid using continuum element and SPH (Smoothed particles hydrodynamics) or CEL (Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian) is used to model the water drop. A comparative study of the two methods shows that they give similar results with the highest stresses close to the stress surface. Coating sometimes contains voids near the surface and sub modeling can be used to evaluate stress concentration due to these. Repeated impacts of raindrops is analyzed using fatigue equations to predict the erosion in the blade, damage in the laminate, and life of the blade. The modelling is carried with Abaqus combined with Python coding.

The damaged blade can be repaired by scarf repair using adhesives. Effect of scarf angle, stiffness of adhesive, localized voids are some of the factors which can affect the post-repair lifetime of the blade and have been briefly analyzed. Attempts are also on to incorporate adhesive curing and post-curing behaviour into the computational model for repair.

Antenna Array Design 

An antenna array allows to achieve high gain with multiple radiating elements and a phased array, in addition, offers the possibility to shape and steer the beam without changing the array geometry. Traditionally, such arrays have been used in defense applications, particularly for radar, but this is changing as we see increased commercial use, especially with the advent of on-the-move access to high bandwidth data. The challenge lies in achieving these radiating characteristics while keeping the undesired effects such as the mutual coupling between the elements due to their proximity to each other at a minimum.

The design of these large arrays is typically achieved in two steps where first the element design is obtained by optimizing the Active Element Impedance and Active Element Pattern overall frequencies and scan angles and in the second step the array design is validated by inspecting the real scanning behavior and including the non-periodic structure effects. 

This presentation highlights the fast and efficient workflows of array design functionality, which makes the design of phased arrays, at both the unit cell and full array level.

RF Simulations of a Closely Shielded MR Body Coil – Effects on Efficiency and SAR

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanners have an elaborate RF chain, very similar to the ones found in a typical Telecom or Aerospace communication network. The system consists of RF power sources that deliver energy over the front end & Transmit antennae, and sensitive receive antennae to pick up signals from patients. These signals are amplified and eventually digitized to form high-resolution anatomical images. The transmit antennae (or coil) while generating the RF B field, required for imaging, deposits power in the human body due to concomitant E fields and currents induced in the conductive regions of the human body. This power that is typically characterized by Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), if left uncontrolled, can cause changes in the temperature of the human body, which can be harmful. This talk, apart from giving an intro to the RF sub-system of an MRI scanner and simulations involved in their designs, presents initial results of changes in local and global SAR due to change in Transmit coil loading, especially the one due to RF shield.
