Webinar | Validating early design and managing multiple requirements in the Zero Emission Vehicles and Renewable Energy sectors with MapleSim
September 27 - 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM CET
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM CET
Elio De Marinis, Manolo Venturin, Filippo Furlan
This webinar focuses on the use of MapleSim, a Multi-domain system modeling tool, to tackle common challenges in the Green Technology sectors, such as the Zero emission vehicles and Renewable energy industry, in the design, performance validation and optimization phases.
Engineers must face several challenges in these industry sectors, such as the integration between different systems and domains, for example mechanical and electrical, the early validation of innovative designs, and the numerous and diverse requirements that must be considered at once during the design and optimization phases.
As a first example we will illustrate the creation of a virtual prototype of a wind turbine blade and its turbine. The goal is to level out, as much as possible, the power generated as wind changes speed and direction. In particular we will see how easy it is to load the needed information about the wind load into the model starting from an Excel file.
In the second example we will show how to size a critical component such as an electric motor with respect to the performance required to the electric vehicle, depending on the vehicle mission requirements.
In the third example we will describe an hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) model including a lithium-ion battery package, an internal combustion engine (ECI), electric motors / generators, a power supply controller and a cooling system. We will then show how is it possible to model and verify multiple requirements using a MBSE approach: among the requirement the design must satisfy we need to ensure that the battery temperature does not exceed a certain threshold. .
The webinar will be held in English.
