Electric cars there are two major problems: low range and high weight. Electric cars there are two major problems: low range and high weight. The EDAG engineering partner with a more advanced version of EDAG light car technology carrier wants to meet the high weight. In the Karlsruhe Transcat PLM GmbH did contribute substantially to the improvement of the battery module with Modelon partner in the development of the drive train. The overall objective was not to exceed a total weight of 1,200 kg including a battery pack for a range of 150 kilometers.

The tasks covered Transcat PLM starting with the creation of the requirements specification (requirements management), via simulation, and pre-selection of battery and drive and the packaging of the components (arrangement in the room) of the total vehicle up to the simulation in the CAD and FEM Modelon built the system model, in particular the description of the battery, for the simulation of the system. Transcat PLM’s employees are highly in the field system engineering qualified. They were very efficiently implement their expertise in the development of the battery module in the practice. As a result we are extremely satisfied with”, commented Mr. Hog, Director of vehicle integration with EDAG. The challenge lay in this project to combine different domains, such as for example electrical, electronics, control, thermodynamics and mechanics in a point and to run as efficiently as possible through a change process. The objective was, optimum products in a multidisciplinary”world to develop. So we analyzed how Dassault Systemes solutions support this process and what the advantages of the integrated data model in this context in the development of an electric vehicle.
