Today’s vehicles are vastly more fuel efficient than their predecessors two decades ago. Yet, with requirements such as 35MPG by 2020 for light duty vehicles in the US, fuel economy remains a key challenge for automotive engineers. While technologies such as VVT, turbo-charging, 7/8-speed automatic transmissions promise efficiency improvement, they also add many more design parameters. The traditional method of experimenting with a couple of parameters at a time using prototype vehicles can be both time consuming and cost prohibitive.
In this webinar, Pete Maloney from MathWorks Consulting will demonstrate a simulation-led design optimization approach that involves:
• Building fast and accurate multi-domain system level simulation
• Optimizing the value of key design parameters such as shift schedule and axle ratio
• Speeding up simulation and optimization runs using parallel computing
A Q&A session will follow the presentation and demos
