Electric and hybrid vehicles pose particular design challenges beyond those of conventionally powered vehicles. The electrical / electronic content is substantially higher and is more important in the overall cost picture. Novel electrical architectures with no previous industrial track record bring new risks and demand thorough evaluation in a virtual testing environment before release to the market.
Join Mentor Graphics for this session to learn how companies are improving their electrical vehicle design process by optimization of physical layout, modeling of battery charge / discharge, identification of safety issues and reduction of electromagnetic effects.
What You Will Learn
- How electrical designs can be analyzed for cable and component sizing using drive cycle simulation
- How electrical designs can be validated using failure modes effects analysis to eliminate the danger of hidden design errors
- How EMI effects can be minimized using automated cable routing
- How component layout can be optimized for cost and weight distribution
