CEDRAT News 69 - Discover our design solutions
03 March 2016

Discover our design solutions.

.../... In CEDRAT, we continue to work on several themes to develop our solutions, allow easier exchange of information between different teams and create a technical link between project designers, control engineers and generalists who are increasingly hurried and pressurised. 

In 2016, we are proud to describe our solutions and toolboxes around these themes: offering solutions to quickly and precisely test devices and their control systems displaying non-ideal behaviour, assessing losses for different operating points, taking saturation into account, etc. In the end, it’s all about allowing local assessment of the impact of design choices, modelisation of advanced phenomena, integration into more global workflows and acceleration of calculation. In this latest issue, you will find more proof of that.../...

CEDRAT News 68 - Innovation is Non-Stop Competition
02 October 2015

Innovation is Non-Stop Competition.

Winter is already approaching in our Alpine region. A few mornings ago, cooler temperatures reminded me of that superb ski race I took part in Austria, and of it’s motto " Everybody is a winner against himself ".../...

CEDRAT News 67 - Think global design, think multiphysics!
29 January 2015

The Need to Think Globally.
Think global design, think multiphysics! Flux® 12 “Innovate in 3D” slogan doesn’t mean to stop at the 3rd dimension. Multiphysics has also become a new dimension in the world of simulation. Flux, at the heart of the multiphysics platform, is good at coupling electromagnetic phenomena to thermal, vibro-acoustic or mechanical ones. Working with expert software, offering comprehensive embedded applications make it possible to work with simulations made accessible and realistic by interpreting different levels of models and complexity...

CEDRAT News 65 - The right partner to access the "Premium Market"
25 November 2013

Because of its acceleration – 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds – amongst other features, the Tesla Model S was elected “Car of the Year 2013”. The recently-marketed BMW i3 will transport you just as comfortably as any traditional combustion engine-powered city car, with a range of 160 km... and very convincing, silent acceleration (0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds). The Red Bull team has topped world Formula 1 rankings for many years. Last summer, Solar Impulse crossed the United States by air, powered only by solar energy...
