ConceptEV is a dedicated design and simulation platform for the concept design of electric vehicle (EV) powertrains. System and component design engineering teams can collaborate on a shared and democratized system simulations connected to requirements from the start of the design process.

Developing advanced electrical powertrains requires the collaboration of multi-disciplinary engineering teams. ConceptEV is a design and simulation platform that connects and enables various teams to perform trade studies and evaluate the implications of specific component design decisions or powertrain architecture against system-level requirements and targets. Engineers, both specialists and non-specialists, can work around a standard data set and model. ConceptEV is shareable (permission control) within the organization.

ConceptEV is exclusively used for EV powertrain designs and simulations. Extending this approach to other industries and applications is planned in future releases.

More comprehensive data-driven design space exploration in early phase, leading to better system design decisions, reduced iteration, and a faster time to market with more competitive products. ConceptEV can break down team silos and facilitate better collaboration amongst engineering teams and stakeholders involved in the development. Leading to reduced risks and an improved understanding throughout the organization.

ConceptEV is a SaaS simulation tool accessible via a web browser. It is a simulation software licensed on a subscription basis and centrally hosted on the secure Ansys Cloud Portal. ConceptEV can easily and quickly be set up and accessed. Contact your Ansys sales representative.

ConceptEV is an open platform that works with other Ansys tools, such as Ansys optiSLang to investigate the design space exploration analysis, Ansys Motor-CAD for multiphysics motor simulations, and Ansys Maxwell for advanced EM field analysis. ConceptEV can integrate with your existing tools and processes through its Python API.

You can get a free ConceptEV trial by registering directly on the Ansys Portal or contacting your Ansys sales representative.

ConceptEV has an open interface for connecting with other Ansys and existing tools. A Python API is used to automate the workflow.

ConceptEV is a bespoke design and simulation platform for EV powertrain with in-built control. Users can quickly and simply perform design space exploration against requirements on a shareable platform. ConceptEV is open and accessible to cross-functional teams enabling enhanced communications and model exchange.
