An extensive experience in all applications of 1D system-level simulation

1D Powertrain and Vehicle Simulation

PWT is at the cutting-edge of 1D systems simulation, thanks to a consolidated and recognized expertise developed over 15+ years.
We are able to support our customers with tailor-made consultancy services, ranging from detailed component-level analyses to integrated system-level simulations. The 1D CAE tools and methodologies we adopt are based on a physical representation of even complex systems, promoting the models robustness and predictive capabilities, still ensuring a quite fast computational time.

PWT has a consolidated experience on a wide range applications, from passenger cars to heavy-duty vehicles, both on- and off-road machinery and stationary/marine applications.
We can support on a wide range of applications and analyses:

Vehicle and driveline simulation
• Vehicle performance analyses, for both fuel-powered, hybrid and full-electric powertrains
• Energy/fuel consumption assessment, electric range estimation
• Hybrid architecture evaluation
• HEV energy management optimization for both series and parallel configurations (e.g, Dynamic Programming, ECMS, rule-based control logic)

Vehicle thermal management
• Hydraulic and thermal studies of cooling systems: layout definition, sizing and optimization
• Heat rejection and heat distribution analyses, applicable to battery pack, e-motor, inverter, internal combustion engine and its components (e.g., turbocharger)
