Automotive and Transport

Clean energy and eco-mobility are driving tomorrow’s technology

The careful design of all electrical devices installed in a vehicle is key. While keeping the vehicle compact, the design must achieve:

Minimum power consumption while maintaining performance
Reduced electromagnetic radiations
Limited temperature increase

Each device can be very complex and the design constraints are many. Because subsystems influence each other, it is necessary to optimize the entire system as a whole and to test the dynamic interactions between the subsystems. System simulation is key to apprehending the behavior of machinery, including drive & control. For example a full system simulation is necessary to evaluate the performance of a hybrid powertrain.
