clean and eco-mobility

drives tomorrow’s technology

A careful design of all electrical devices installed in a vehicle is key to keeping its power consumption to a minimum while maintaining its performances, to minimizing electromagnetic radiations, and to keeping temperature increase in check, while making the vehicle compact. Each device can be very complex, and design constraints are many.
Because subsystems influence each other, it is necessary to optimize the entire system as a whole and to test the dynamic interactions between the subsystems.
System simulation is key to apprehend the behavior of machinery including drive & control, for example the full system of a hybrid powertrain.
CEDRAT software solutions offer a complete range of modeling tools able to take into account the specificities of power systems such as the ones in all electric ships or railway systems.
