Web Seminar Tomorrow: An Overview on Using CarSim to Model an Electric Motor and Drivetrain 

Mechanical Simulation is continuing our series of web seminars designed to discuss focused solutions to a variety of vehicle dynamics simulation challenges. These online seminars are the perfect opportunity to learn more about our software from the convenience of your own location. You can watch as our staff demonstrate various features of the software and respond to your questions.

Please join us tomorrow, Wednesday, June 7 at 10:00 am EDT to participate in our web seminar: An Overview on Using CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim to Model an Electric Motor and Drivetrain.

A common question from end-users working with vehicles having wheels driven by electric motors is how to model such a system in CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim. This web seminar will provide a review of the CarSim example which demonstrates how to model a split hybrid powertrain in which the vehicle uses the CarSim internal powertrain model to drive the front wheels, while VS Commands are used to calculate and apply drive torque to the rear wheels. A similar example will be demonstrated in TruckSim. Attention will then turn to other related topics, including how to use the existing powertrain screens to represent the behavior of a powertrain using an electric motor and regenerative braking.

Our expert, Ben Duprey, will be on hand to present and answer any questions you may have.

You can view the full list of upcoming web seminars on our website.

Please visit our WebEx page to sign up.

We look forward to you joining us!
