Driveline Performance Simulation

We offer a wide range of simulation services for driveline solutions always with the aim for efficiency, performance and innovation, allowing at the same time a reduction on development time and costs. This includes simulations on component, system and vehicle level.

Our driveline performance simulation allows to predict range and consumption in standardized test procedures (i.e. NEDC, WLTC), in customer defined cycles and to analyze common use cases (e.g. top speed, acceleration, continuous speed, hill climb, curb climb) at all stages of development. 

A basic simulation can be quickly used in concept phase and early stages of the development to define the vehicle’s key figures (e.g. topology, component dimensioning, gearbox ratio, battery size). Advanced simulations can be used in further development phases and include detailed component models and control algorithms. These can be used to optimize single components as well as the interaction of components in the complete vehicle. To increase efficiency automated processes for optimization and result evaluation are embedded in the CES simulation toolchain.

Besides using models and controls based on our standard library is also possible to embed your models into our simulation environment. Likewise our component and system models can be implemented into your simulation. 

All in all, we have the simulation engineering competence to support you in the development of new driveline solutions according to your requirements and global legislation.
