Powertrain component design is permanently driven by various factors including costs, size, weight, performance, reliability and durability, which are often in conflict to each other. Hence the actual loads are continuously moving closer to material limits potentially leading to fatigue issues and component failure. This is also true for thermally loaded parts. Looking at combustion engines in modern powertrains, the intention to increase their efficiency results in so-called “right-sizing”. While the engine's efficiency and power output are expected to increase, size and weight are expected to decrease. To avoid damaging thermal loads, more effort therefore has to be spent on regulating the engine's operating temperatures. This webinar is part of a webinar series and follows the Webinar “Predictive Thermal Load Analysis”. The focus lies on simulating/predicting the thermal load of an IC Engine, a Head/Block Compound during warm up, sudden stop or critical boundary conditions. In the course of the webinar we will show how 1D system and 3D component models are used to analyze real-world scenarios and discover optimization potential for the component design.

Development Efficiency

EN
Thermal management is a challenging topic for battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The operational range of electrical components, such as the battery, inverters and e-motors, are relatively small compared to conventional propulsion systems. Thermal management is also safety relevant because of the possible and unexpected derating effects which lead to reduced acceleration capabilities, as well as possible thermal events and pack runaway/venting.
During this 60-minute webinar, the benefits of efficient battery thermal management are shown in detail, as a cell’s health, power availability and driving range strongly depend on it. Nowadays, the topic is becoming increasingly important as lower charge times, and thus higher charge power, are critical factors in customer acceptance of BEVs.
In fact, fast charging scenarios with charge power greater than 100kW lead to huge heat rejections, which need to be efficiently extracted from the thermal system. On the other hand, the development of e-powertrain systems requires the consideration of important aspects such as simplicity (packaging, assembly) and costs, without neglecting cooling performance and safety (how it behaves in the case of an incident).
Today there is a gap between simulation and testing. This is especially true for thermal management. To frontload thermal management tasks on testbeds requires dynamic conditioning units and accurate simulation models.
By connecting simulation and testing, you get much closer to reality. Without such a connection, components are only tested with constant coolant temperatures and volume flows. As a result, the behavior of the unit under test (UUT) does not correspond to that in the real vehicle and, for example, derating effects caused by overheating of the battery are not accurately reflected.
Dr. Christian Mayr, Project Manager Integrated and Open Development Platform at AVL and Dr. Armin Traußnig, Lead Engineer Thermal and HVAC System Simulation at AVL, discuss the development of thermal management.

One important measure to meet the stringent restrictions on fleet average CO2 emissions is increasing the degree of vehicle powertrain electrification. Starting with electrified auxiliaries of conventional powertrains ranging all the way to fully electric vehicles. Modern electrified vehicles, also known as xEVs, are characterized by energy conversions and may even use multiple energy sources. This requires a holistic view of the energy flows within the vehicle system. To perform such an analysis, a multi-domain system simulation approach is necessary, optimizing the overall energy requirements during representative driving conditions that consider the influence of control functions. They define how the vehicle propulsion system operates - e.g. purely electrical or combined driving, recuperative or dissipative braking etc. The insight gained by this numerical investigation is the basis for further design modifications of individual components. In this 60-minute webinar, AVL's expert Oliver Knaus discusses how to optimize the energy consumption of the entire system, while respecting the individual demands of performance and drivability.

For volume applications electrified powertrains are a prerequisite to meet future fuel consumption limits. The range will include parallel hybrids, 48V- or High voltage Mild- or Full hybrids, up to Serial hybrids. In the first configurations the ICE is the main propulsion, requiring the whole engine speed and load range including the transient operation. The competition of different technologies and variabilities, from variable compression ratio to variable valve lift, advanced boosting technologies, high pressure injection at the gasoline engine, as well as add on measures such as water injection require a modular common engine family architecture with common parts and common machining and assembly concepts. At serial hybrid applications the vehicle is generally electrically driven and the ICE provides power to drive the generator, either exclusively or supporting a plug-in battery charging concept. As the ICE is not mechanically coupled to the drive train, a reduction of the operation range to preferred load and speed ranges with high efficiency is feasible. The webinar shows the chances of a modular technology approach, with focus on a balanced overall complexity of the powertrain with increasing electrical power in regard of Cost and CO2-reduction.

AVL’s Josko Balic discusses how co-simulation platforms can be used to develop a range of driver assistance systems.

The introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) has become a strong driver of innovation in the automotive industry. Safety requirements, paired with short development times, can only be met by using highly efficient simulation and testing methods. As these requirements cannot be covered by a single simulation tool, it is necessary to perform integration within a versatile co-simulation environment.
AVL offers a robust and open co-simulation and integration platform called Model.CONNECT. It connects environment, traffic, driver, sensor, vehicle and controls models with cloud computing resources and hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) testing systems, for ADAS engineers to perform rapid prototyping, system integration, large-scale function optimization and safety validation.
In this webinar, Josko Balic, Product Manager for Model.CONNECT, System Simulation and virtual ADAS solutions, explains how to utilize the tool for different ADAS applications, such as platooning, highway pilot, parking assist and adaptive cruise control, while ensuring optimal performance and accuracy within a consistent and seamless development process.

Due to legal requirements, the additional costs OEMs face when performing emissions-relevant tests on the road and on chassis dynos have increased considerably.
In order to make things easier, road tests can also be carried out in testbed environments. However, there are several factors that must be considered if this is to be successfully implemented:
  • For the relocation of emissions-relevant tests in testbed environments, appropriate vehicle and driver models are required; and especially for engine testbeds, suitable transmission models are necessary
  • The methodology used on the testbed is also decisive; it is the only way to ensure high measurement quality
  • Nevertheless, road tests must not be forgotten. Preparation (e.g. selection of the best route), execution (assistance systems that support the driver with regard to dynamic criteria) and post-processing (preparation of the measurement data for transfer to a testbed environment) require appropriate tools
Christian Mayr, Project Manager for the Integrated and Open Development Platform discusses how emissions-relevant driving cycles can be executed on testbeds and – as an example – shows results from a customer project involving chassis dyno and engine testbeds.

Durch die kontinuierlich steigenden Anforderung in der Entwicklung von Antriebskonzepten erhöht sich die Komplexität der Prüffelder stetig. Daraus resultieren große Datenmengen, bei denen selbst kleine Fehler große Auswirkungen haben können. Aus diesem Grund ist es unerlässlich, Fehlerpotentiale so gering wie möglich zu halten. Das AVL SensorDatenManagement bietet Ihnen die Möglichkeit, ihre Zylinderdrucksensoren voll automatisiert in die Messkette zu integrieren und so den Einfluss der Fehler, aber auch den Aufwand, auf ein Minimum zu reduzieren. In diesem Webinar geben wir Ihnen eine Einführung in das AVL-SDM und zeigen dessen Anwendung an einem praktischen Beispiel. Überzeugen Sie sich selbst von dem Nutzen und den Vorteilen, die Ihnen dieses Indicom-Feature bietet.

The vehicle architectures for long-distance battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and for powerful plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) increasingly require highly integrated e-drive systems. These e-axles are the ideal way to meet future needs for high efficiency, robustness and simplified vehicle integration concepts. Consequently, different domains of technologies and manufacturing skills have to share the same housing, jointly function in a harsh environment and need to be optimised in terms of weight, space and performance. In this webinar, Thomas Frey and Frederik Haag will explain how the right combination of e-machine, power electronics, cooling concept and EMC can improve efficiency, weight and size, as well as cost.

In this free 60-minute webinar, Dr. Günter Fraidl, Business Field Manager Gasoline Engines, and Michael Weissbaeck, Business Field Manager Diesel Engines, will outline why and how the ICE will continue to be an essential and necessary cornerstone for future powertrain portfolios also in Passenger Cars. The "Combustion Engine 4.0" offers not only further improvements in fuel consumption but also a low level of pollutant emissions that can best be described as "Zero Impact Emission". This means that such future ICE´s will no longer have a negative impact on the imission situation in urban areas. With the e-fuels topic, the ICE also has the potential to become both CO2- and pollutant-neutral in the medium and long term.

With the increasing move to hybrid and full electric vehicles, the underbody of the modern vehicle contains many sensitive and high voltage electrical components. Protecting these valuable components is critical from a safety and reliability perspective. The forces imposed on the underbody by hitting water at speed are significant. The task to predict those forces using traditional CFD methodologies is very expensive with long solve times, even with large compute clusters available. Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) is a meshless particle method based on Lagrangian formulation that is now being used for these applications. This method is being applied for solving problems in water management with complex flow configurations without using a pre-calculated mesh. Solve times are a fraction of traditional CFD. PreonLab is an SPH code with superior performance, allowing for full geometric complexity, and powerful post-processing and visualization capabilities. Join this AVL webinar to learn how PreonLab software is enabling OEM’s to accurately predict flow paths of water or oil, with the goal of improving the design and integration into the whole vehicle. Topics covered include simulation of:
  • Underbody damage caused by standing water at high and low speeds
  • Water ingress into the body structure through gaps and seals
  • Management of water run-off from body structure

Fast recharging is essential for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) to ensure on-demand mobility. This changes system design, shifting from today’s loose link between refuelling stations and vehicles, to a tight relationship between infrastructure and BEVs. Based on future standards, voltage level rightsizing is a key enabler for fast charging. The webinar will outline the benefits and limitations of extended voltage, something which can significantly impact the entire BEV system design. A short case study based around an 800V BEV will be used to illustrate the key challenges of system design and discuss the solutions on thermal system design & management.
