About the Program
Building and simulating a vehicle model enables the engineers to analyse several powertrain configurations and determine if requirements are met for each design. If engineering requirements are not met by a powertrain configuration, it is much easier to change a parameter in a computer model than it is to make a change to a vehicle prototype that is already built. For example, it is easy to change the power rating of an electric motor in a computer model, but we know it can be challenging to swap motors in a real vehicle. Engineers can study the performance and energy consumptions aspects of a powertrain configuration from a vehicle model. Finally, let’s not forget that running computer simulation is faster and more cost effective than building and driving an actual vehicle prototype (90’s model)
