Electrified Powertrains, HVAC and Thermal Management Bring all the systems together within one environment and you will benefit from the efficiencies and fidelity of the models for simulating and predicting performance, response and dynamics. Home in on the best designs from your desktop and accelerate the development process, even before any prototypes are available.

Thermal Management

Whether you’re interested in occupant comfort or powertrain thermal management, we have the thermal domain covered. Object orientated application libraries allow a modular approach to building the systems in a quick and efficient way with intuitive diagram based approaches. Customisation is only a few clicks away if required with open model standards that allow the user to have full control over the physical descriptions.


Electrical energy storage application libraries with phenomenological and electrochemical models that are suitable for cell design all the way through to module and pack thermal mangement and BMS development. The 3-d approach to thermal modelling truly describes the thermal dynamics of the devices and components. Scalable discretisation gives us the ability to quickly tune the model detail to suit our requirements.

Fuel cells

With the growing interest in fuel cells as one of the solutions for low-carbon vehicles, we are also model such devices and fully integrate them within the vehicle system models.


Predictive refrigeration models give us the opportunity to explore what architecture designs best suit the applications and markets our vechile is being designed for. We don’t have to rely on test data to be able to identify architecture designs and control strategies that will deliver the results we need.

Powertrain Dynamics

Understanding the inpact of thermal aspects on driveability and vehicle performance is key to a successful and robust product. We use a range of predictive solutions for modelling warm-up, efficiency and control strategy development. Coupling detailed powertrain models with electric drive control is a “must” for robust hybrid and electric vehicle development.


Multi physics models allow the user to fully describe the interactions between the electrical, thermal, mechanical, fluids, aerodynamics and other domains. The models are defined by physical relationships, not prescriptive calculation orders. This allows for versatile, non scenario specific model architectures that can be re-used in many different use cases with minimal user input.

    This blog post seeks to raise awareness of how objects such as visualisers/visualizers reference global settings that can be enabled and adjusted from within the Animation Setup and World objects within Dymola. Often we want to be able to visualise the application of forces and torques to better understand what is happening in the system we are modelling. This is […]

    Simulation’s role in delivering Industry 4.0 vehicles

    We’re living through a technological revolution. The internal combustion engine, at least as we know it, is dead.   Every automotive manufacturer is locked in a race against time to develop and deliver clean green vehicles. They must be capable of the performance standards their customers know, and more importantly, expect. By 2030, cars with petrol or diesel engines will be banned […]
