Powertrain and Thermal System Simulation of Electric Drive Vehicles

2 July 2019 | Leinfelden-Echterdingen | 9:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.


The electrification of vehicles is steadily moving forward. This technical progress is creating new challenges for engineers: the thermal behaviour of electric drive plays a central role. Even at an early stage of development, important decisions have to be made with regard to various designs and functions. Predictive simulation models are necessary to face complex physical effects and electrochemical reactions. Innovative simulation methods can play a key role in this context.


Get an overview of industrial requirements, trends and latest simulation technologies at our simpulseday and discuss methodological gaps with other experts. Our goal is to accelerate method development by networking and pooling synergies, thereby providing our members with better access to R&D activities and latest simulation technologies.

ESI Group is a leading innovator in Virtual Prototyping software and services. Specialist in material physics, ESI has developed a unique proficiency in helping industrial manufacturers replace physical prototypes by virtual prototypes, allowing them to virtually manufacture, assemble, test and pre-certify their future products. Coupled with the latest technologies, Virtual Prototyping is now anchored in the wider concept of the Product Performance Lifecycle™, which addresses the operational performance of a product during its entire lifecycle, from launch to disposal. The creation of a Hybrid Twin™, leveraging simulation, physics and data analytics, enables manufacturers to deliver smarter and connected products, to predict product performance and to anticipate maintenance needs. Today, ESI’s customer base spans nearly every industry sector. The company employs about 1200 high-level specialists worldwide to address the needs of customers in more than 40 countries.
QuickerSim helps industrial companies design their products quicker and cheaper. The start-up company achieves that by means of computer calculations of heat and fluid flows. QuickerSim is focused on development of custom-made engineering software. The software can be used in engineering departments in R&D (e.g. cooling of batteries, dust deposition on sensors in autonomous vehicles etc.). In that case it is aimed at accelerating design cycles (which can drop from e.g. 2 weeks to 3-4 days). In contrast to large software manufacturers we create tailored software solutions which are designed for a particular customer and reflect his project’s needs and workflow. Both founders of QuickerSim hold PhD degree in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The team consists of engineers, software developers, mathematicians. QuickerSims unique value is strong academic background.
Rescale™ is the global leader for enterprise big compute on the multicloud. Trusted by the Global Fortune 500, Rescale empowers the world’s top executives, IT leaders, engineers and scientists to securely manage product innovation and perform groundbreaking research and development faster at a lower cost. Rescale’s ScaleX platform solutions transform traditional fixed IT resources into flexible hybrid, private, and public cloud resources—built on the largest and most powerful high-performance computing infrastructure network in the world.
