For complete new product development and/ or expansion and modularisation of existing product line, performance of the vehicle defines the success or failure of the new launch. Calculating theoretical performance and evaluating it to the real life conditions involves clear understanding of physics and robust assumptions which portrays real working conditions. We can calculate the performance requirements of your concept with detailed multi-physic, multi-dimensional software to safeguard the claim that will hold true to certification requirements and real working conditions
The most ambiguous part of the electric vehicle is the driving range on a single charge. The driving range depends on many parameters such as ambient pressure, temperature, humidity, battery health, traffic conditions, topography, driver behaviour, pay load and many more. To predict a range precisely, a robust correlation of above parameters on battery performance is required which needs extensive testing and validated assumptions. The range can be dynamically calculated with advanced artificial intelligence and neural networks logic. We can provide solutions which will predict the range accurately and reliably using advanced AI solutions.
Drive Cycle Definition
Drive Cycle Definition
A driving cycle is a series of data points representing the speed of a vehicle versus time. Driving cycles are produced by different countries and organizations to assess the performance of vehicles in various ways, as for example fuel consumption and polluting emissions. Additionally, diving cycles are used in propulsion system simulations to predict performance of internal combustion engines, transmissions, electric drive systems, batteries, fuel cell systems and similar components. For different topographies, the actual driving conditions may vary than that of the driving cycle consideration. Therefore there could be a better solution if extreme weather, topographies etc. are considered while defining a driving cycle and performance is tested against such real world conditions in the virtual environment (simulation). We can help you define a driving cycle for your target market to optimise the cost and performance of the powertrain suitable for your business strategy.
Depending on the load, weight, aerodynamic & friction performance your vehicle and other parameters, power requirement for the vehicle is calculated for a specific driving cycle. Based on the power and torque requirements, components such as electric motor, controllers, energy storage devices, inverters etc. are sized. We can help you find the most suitable and optimise components for your application which will perform as per calculations and expectations.
