Driving Electrification with End-to-end Simulation and Software Development
The race is on to power the electric revolution and overcome significant challenges of engineering highly advanced electric vehicles (EVs) in the automotive and aerospace and defense industries.
In the automotive arena, consumers expect new EVs to match the performance of today’s gasoline-powered cars. EVs must have a similar cost, drive 300 miles on a single charge and restore battery life in mere minutes.
Achieving this requires reimagining your electrification design approaches — resulting in significant development time and expense as electric car motor, powertrain and battery prototypes must be developed.
From automobiles to aircraft, only multiphysics simulation enables you to rapidly and reliably innovate next-generation electrification advancements, radically reduce the need for costly prototype development and speed new products to market.
