Cenex will host their 4th annual Low Carbon Vehicle event on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th September 2011 at Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby, Northamptonshire. Engineers from Claytex will be available in the exhibition hall to demonstrate Dymola.
Claytex will demonstrate how Dymola enables engineers to model, not just components, but complete vehicle systems. From electronics to the drive train; from vehicle dynamics to ancillary areas such as air conditioning, the application allows designers to model all the subsystems together. This leads to far more efficient, robust manufacture.
The Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project is using the Dymola modelling technology to help develop the next generation of low carbon vehicles and Claytex will be available to help explain why. The project partners are WMG, Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors European Technical Centre, Zytek, Ricardo, MIRA and Coventry University. Between them they have created 15 separate workstreams covering everything from battery cells to aerodynamics.
Ross McMurran is manager of WMG’s Embedded Systems Group at the University’s International Automotive Research Centre. “For the LCVTP, we have selected Dymola as the common plant modelling tool. The project will provide an opportunity for partners to evaluate its capability to model mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of hybrid electric vehicle systems.” he explained.
Claytex will be on stand H3 within the Indoor Exhibition and we look forward to seeing you there.
