Holistic simulation solution for the development of efficient and reliable electric vehicles

Through new model elements in the electro-mechanical and Vehicle Drives (Energy and Controls) libraries, simulation engineers can now solve occurring challenges around e-mobility on all levels. In addition to integrating e-mobility into sustainable and efficient energy grids, SimulationX also allows electric vehicles consumption analysis. This includes path dependent driving cycles, operation profile optimization and even detailed evaluation of electric components.

These features primarily designed for ground transportation and urban planning, combine the influence of thermal behavior, cooling systems on the energy consumption, along with battery aging simulations or electrical and electromechanical systems evaluation. This 3.9 solution also incorporates torsional vibration analyses in the powertrain.

Simulate discrete controllers efficiently with Modelica’s synchronous language elements

Historically known as a proven solution with a focus on simulating physical systems, SimulationX 3.9 is making big strides towards providing a single modeling and simulation platform for complete, technical systems. By implementing the Modelica®** Synchronous language elements, ESI’s software is now able to efficiently simulate discrete controllers as used in almost all digital controls. With SimulationX, digital control structures can now be designed and tested efficiently in the same environment and in interaction with a model of the physical machine.

Efficient conveyor systems and minimal commissioning times with the new SimulationX Belt Conveyors library

SimulationX 3.9 masters both comfort and efficiency in system modeling and simulation to offer maximum freedom to all its users including those in the mining sector. The new SimulationX belt conveyor library integrates the use of a novel approach for automated model setup and modeling of belt conveyor systems. Users who face specific analysis tasks can combine the belt conveyor models with proven elements from further SimulationX libraries, such as Power Transmission, Electro-Mechanics and Heat Transfer.

Discover a new level of accuracy: Highly detailed drivetrain simulations in the time domain including frequency-dependent damping behavior

As a simulation solution for conventional drive trains, in use in the automotive industry for more than two decades and constantly refined, SimulationX has now reached another level of detail for vibration damper modeling. Along with the successful model elements parameterized through characteristic curves, SimulationX 3.9 introduces new elements describing dual-mass flywheels and engine mounts parameterized through design data, including their components. These can also represent frequency-dependent damping behavior in transient simulations.

Simulations in new dimensions: Easy handling of large system models and variation calculations with exceptional performance

New features in SimulationX 3.9 allow engineers to navigate easily within complex model structures and conveniently set their necessary parameters. Along with improved calculation methods and results visualization, all main work steps have become faster: modeling, calculation, and analysis. This recent version addresses several challenges including higher performance while handling large models, as well as enhanced visualization, navigation features for the diagram view and easier parametrization.

Simulation Task Manager - a new and powerful tool for automated simulations

It allows for parameter studies in the time and frequency domains as well as for calculations of natural frequencies and mode shapes. Multiple instances of SimulationX can be used simultaneously for such purposes. A project can include different types of calculations and models. It is also possible to perform variation calculations with executable models that were created through Code Export. The task manager offers various options for easy calculations and result interpretation. The Simulation Task Manager is a separate applications which can be run from within SimulationX or as standalone tool.
