Utilising Simulation to Ensure Optimal ePowertrain Design

Today’s ePowertrains have to meet multiple conflicting requirements for durability, efficiency and NVH performance, alongside weight, packaging, size and cost. In order to find the optimal design for a given set of requirements, designers need access to simulation tools that enable them to explore the design space and to test out different geometry combinations before any design elements are fixed, then to move into detailed design and optimise performance for durability, efficiency and NVH, while considering the holistic system interactions as well as the manufacturability of the components. In this webinar series, we will present our proven workflow for building an EV gearbox from scratch to meet design requirements.

Our first webinar will look at the early ePowertrain design stage. Making the wrong decisions at this stage can incur significant time and cost later in the process. We will show how Romax Concept can help ePowertrain designers to capitalise on the opportunities of the early design phase, to set design direction based on useful engineering insights and learned trade-offs.

The second webinar in the series looks at the detailed design stage, where analyses become more advanced as the model becomes more refined. We will show how Romax tools can be used for multi-fidelity system-level analyses and multi-attribute optimisation to make smarter engineering decisions and reduce risk of innovation from design to manufacture.

Finally, our third webinar will focus on NVH simulation. In ePowertrain design, good NVH performance is critical to meet high customer expectations, but there are many challenges to achieving this. We will show how Hexagon tools can help you design ePowertrains for good NVH and acoustic performance, to develop higher quality products at reduced development times and costs.

The early ePowertrain design stage is critical: making the wrong decisions at this stage can incur significant time and cost later in the process.
