VITESCO TECHNOLOGIES Romania uses Ansys for automotive applications

VITESCO TECHNOLOGIES Romania uses Ansys for automotive applications

The BMS is the brain of any electric vehicle’s battery pack. Its purpose is to evaluate the overall functionality and safety of the battery. The general functions are data acquisition; storage and processing; electrical and thermal management; voltage & current protection; safety management and cell balancing & communication.

The primary module (BMS) requires a communication link from each battery module. The last, are monitored via a Cell Supervising Circuit (CSC), individually mounted for each module. Vitesco Technologies Battery Management Systems can be used for a wide range of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) as well as for battery electric vehicles (BEV).

In order to evaluate the possibility of migrating from a physical wired communication link between the BMS-CSC, to a wireless solution based on Inverted F-type Antennas (IFAs), a thorough 3-D electromagnetic (EM) simulation needs to be performed. This is done by using the ANSYS HFSS simulation software. In our analysis the complex environment of a generic battery is used, in order to evaluate the efficiency of the transmitted RF power.

VITESCO TECHNOLOGIES Romania uses Ansys for automotive applications

VITESCO TECHNOLOGIES Romania uses Ansys for automotive applications

Vitesco Technologies integrates innovative and efficient powertrain system solutions for vehicles, such as battery electric (EV), hybrid (HEV), and fuel cell electric (FCEV). Subject to all the possible stress caused by thermal and dynamic loads, the High Voltage (HV) inverters must be able to handle high power and currents. At the same time, the team must also account for the Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) challenges as well as provide fail-safe operation to ensure dependability and safety for the driver and passengers.

The thermo-electric simulation model of the inverter is very important since it allows Vitesco to easily track the impact of any changes that might be brought to the product in the development process. The thermal map of the assembly shows us the areas that we can further optimize to achieve a better thermal performance of our products in the R&D phase.
