Ricardo to host training event in India on simulation-led xEV powertrain development
aerobd.news : A free seminar to be hosted by Ricardo Software at the Marriott Suites, Pune, India, on November 21-22 will provide valuable insights into the use of the Ignite systems modeling tool to meet the challenges of developing plug-in, hybrid and battery-electric vehicle (xEV) powertrains. As the range and complexity of electrified powertrain options increases, so too does the need to be able to simulate the key system-level interactions at the design stage. Improved virtual toolchains are therefore needed to capture key physical processes and interactions between conflicting attributes.
Ignite is a physics-based system simulation package designed for complete vehicle system modeling and simulation. With comprehensive powertrain and thermo-fluid component libraries, users can quickly and accurately model conventional to highly complex vehicle system models, hybrid-electric, full-electric and novel vehicles. Faster than real-time simulation, and native design and optimization tools, provide models that can be used at all phases of the development process to study a range of applications, including vehicle performance, fuel economy and emissions prediction. Through a series of live demos and training modules at the free, two-day training event hosted by Ricardo Software, attendees will be able to explore how to optimize the development of hybrid and electric vehicles using Ignite. Hosted by Ricardo’s experts, attendees will learn how to create EV models and will run simulations to understand the impact of different subsystems on vehicle performance.
“The electrification of powertrains in the form of xEV products requires a fundamentally new systems-based approach for automotive product development teams,” commented Ricardo Software president David McShane. “The Ignite product provides a state-of-the-art toolchain that enables powertrain engineers to develop more complex and sophisticated electrified powertrains more quickly and to a higher level of optimization. We are pleased to be able to offer this free training opportunity for the benefit of our existing and prospective customers in India, and look forward to what I am sure will be an extremely interesting and useful event for those able to attend.”
