LOWELL, Mass., 21 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – ePropulsed, the Massachusettstechnology-based technology company that offers advanced electric propulsion systems, today announced that Ricardo brought its tools and expertise to help them develop its internal electric motor simulation system and support them in their mission to become the leader in electric propulsion systems.
ePropelled selected Ricardo’s comprehensive vehicle system modeling and simulation tool, IGNITE, to help it develop innovative technology in the design of electric motor and propulsion control systems. With comprehensive integrated automotive Modelica libraries, IGNITE enables fast and accurate modeling of conventional and highly complex vehicle system models, including electric motors, propulsion control system, and new vehicles.
With governments around the world setting ambitious targets to reduce carbon emissions, the transportation sector has seen tremendous growth in the electric vehicle (EV) market. Suppliers are looking for ways to reduce battery size and costs and increase powertrain energy efficiency, while providing the range and reliability consumers expect. EPropelled’s goal is to meet these needs with their eDTS Technology.
IGNITE will provide system-level simulations to enable the evaluation and optimization of their electric propulsion system, which will help reduce overall product development time and costs, allowing them to bring their product to market more quickly.
Kim matenchuk, Managing Director of Ricardo Software said: “At Ricardo, our goal is to help customers create a cleaner future, so we are delighted that our software tools are supporting the development of such cutting-edge technology in the field of electric vehicles. sure for OEMs and suppliers to provide technology that not only meets government legislation, but can also meet consumer expectations. ePropelled promises to do just that.
Dr d’ePropelled Nabeel Shirazee, Technical Director and Global Technical Director, said: “ePropelled is committed to developing market-leading products that benefit our customers and support efforts for a greener future. IGNITE offers unique capabilities for evaluating the design performance of the electric motor, switch matrix, and control system. at vehicle level. It was used to develop the eDTS and we are using it to model how eDTS improves the efficiency of any EV model. Using Ricardo’s expertise, the software will help us evaluate and further optimize our technology to deliver smaller batteries, increase driving range and improve fuel efficiency of EV propulsion systems.
ePropelled designs smart motors, motor controllers and generators that help reduce power consumption and improve system efficiency at lower cost in drone, electric vehicle and pump markets. We are a leader in magnetic engineering, and our patented technology and innovative intelligent power systems are equally at home in the air, on the road and underwater, defining the future of electric propulsion.
ePropelled has offices at United States, Europe, and India and works with manufacturers of different types and sizes around the world. For more information, visit epropelled.com
