Peak Performance for an Electric Vehicle - A SIX-STEP SIMULATION APPROACH

Developing a vehicle to compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is a daunting test for engineers around the world. Volkswagen Motorsport engineers were determined to build a car that could compete with the best, but they had less than a year to produce, test and race an all-new electric car. Using determination, ingenuity and multiphysics simulation, the Volkswagen team smashed not just the electric vehicle record but the all-time record for all cars, including those powered by internal combustion engines.

  • Develop an equivalent circuit model (ECM) for a single battery cell
  • Combined all the ECM cells serially to form an ECM module.
  • Conduct Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of the thermal properties of a battery module
  • Extract key thermal characteristics of the system to create a reduced order model (ROM) for the thermal simulation
  • Run a two-way coupled multiphysics simulation in Twin Builder with the ECM and the thermal LTI ROM models
  • Put the individual battery modules into the full 10-module battery pack
