Energy-management software platform

  • 26-Aug-2010 09:26 EDT

LMS provides a combination of 3-D and 1-D system simulation solutions that enable companies to address challenges driven by ecology trends and changing needs. Solutions combine simulation capabilities and interfaces with CAE and advanced tools to study the static/dynamic functional behavior of any component or system in a user-friendly graphical environment. The company's vehicle energy management (VEM) system integrates green engineering into a current development process while improving the vehicle’s driveability and performance. The integrated methodology combines mechanical, thermal, electrical, and control engineering in one software environment platform known as LMS Imagine.lab AMESim, which enables multiphysics modeling applications and balances vehicle energy performances with driveability and thermal comfort. VEM is compatible with any vehicle architecture, including hybrid and electric, and across engineering levels from concept to full vehicle.

The engine maker used the ConExpo 2017 stage to announce its intention to produce a dual-fuel capable (natural gas and propane) off-highway engine by mid-2018, leveraging its already-in-production on-highway CNG truck engine.
Active flow control devices based on electric plasmas can smooth the turbulent wakes that sweep off the rear edges of truck trailers travelling at highway speeds.
Commercial vehicles are beginning to adopt alternative energy sources, but the transition remains slow. Batteries and an array of renewable fuels are seeing more usage, but costs and infrastructure remain hindrances for these fragmented technologies.
Various levels of electrification, connected solutions and alternative fuels are among the technology pathways that will lead to reductions of CO2, according to AVL's Dr. Marko Dekena. He spoke with Truck & Off-Highway Engineering about a variety of topics ahead of this year's AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference.
