Highly Optimized Passive Lubrication System for an EV Transmission

Presentation by Dr. Milos Stanic, nanoFluidX Product Manager at Altair.



Optimising the rotational losses of an EV transmission is essential to improve range. Whilst bearing and gear losses are well understood, the interaction between rotating components and transmission fluid rarely exploited other than reducing lubricant viscosity. Effective methods for modelling drag and fluid transfer around a transmission have not robustly existed previously.



Converting electrical power into mechanical power to drive a fluid pump is wasteful. However, in tightly packaged EV transmissions where thermal cooling is limited it is essential to manage the lubricant. A novel method for passively moving fluid around an EV transmission with low losses has been developed. The system uses existing components in the gearbox to move fluid in a controlled manner. The cost savings of using this technology can be used directly elsewhere to improve vehicle range.



In order to iterate through potential design solutions a suitable computer based modelling approach had to be developed. A new smoothed particle hydrodynamics approach was created to predict the fluid movement and the drag level on the remaining components. A correlation of this approach was carried out with real world testing to prove its validity.

Innovative Use of Composites for Organic Architecture

In this interview recorded at JEC World 2018, Atanas Zhelev, Chief Architect and co-founder at Digital Architects Ltd., talks about the innovative use of composites for organic architecture.

Composites offer designers the ability to create a material and engineer its properties to resist particular load cases and environments. Such infinite possibilities can be daunting and a big step away from the more conventional way of working with a material having a known set of characteristics.

It is here that architects and structural engineers can be aided by Altair’s software, such as ESAComp, now available as a standalone product in Altair HyperWorks advanced simulation and optimization software suite, to produce efficient, stable and durable composite structures.

Alpla develops and produces packaging solutions for consumer goods. Christoph Plankel, Head of Modeling and Simulation Department at Alphla, discusses how they have used simulation to produce lighter packaging without compromising on performance.

Optimization of Photovoltaic (PV) Mounting Structures – Savings on Material and Cost

Photovoltaic specialist Thesan, a subsidiary of global manufacturer Savio S.p.A, manufactures, and distributes mounting structures, consisting of a so-called Purlin, a Rafter, and a Pole (and Hat), designed to withstand potentially occurring loads from wind and snow, as well as dead loads. Drawing on the Savio Group’s competence in the design of steel and aluminum structures and thanks to a team of over 40 engineers, they are to satisfy every construction requirement of photovoltaic power plants at all altitude and climatic conditions, using any specific fixation requirements. For a recent project requiring optimization of a mounting structure of a medium sized PV field with a power of 5 MW, engineers used HyperWorks. The benefits included reduced material usage, reduced manufacturing and transportation costs and improved competitiveness for Thesan.

MDO Director Datasheet

A multi-disciplinary optimization (MDO) approach allows you to explore all design requirements simultaneously and achieve lighter products, faster. Until now, enabling this process on live vehicle programs has been a challenge. Altair's MDO Director is a novel set of software tools that provides a process to rapidly set up, execute, post-process and explore the design of MDO problems.

ESAComp for Architecture

Composites offer designers the ability to create a material and engineer its properties to resist particular load cases and environments. Such infinite possibilities can be daunting and a big step away from the more conventional way of working with a material having a known set of characteristics. It is here that architects and designers can be aided by Altair’s software such as ESAComp to produce efficient, stable and durable composite structures.

SimLab 2017 Brochure

SimLab is a process oriented, feature based finite element modeling software that allows you to quickly and accurately simulate engineering behavior of complex assemblies. SimLab automates simulation-modeling tasks to reduce human errors and time spent manually creating finite element models and interpreting results. SimLab is not a traditional off-the-shelf pre- and post-processing software, but a vertical application development platform for capturing and automating simulation processes.

FluxMotor 2018 Brochure

FluxMotor is a flexible open software tool dedicated to the pre-design of electric rotating machines. It enables the user to build a machine from standard or customized parts, add windings and materials to run a selection of tests and compare results. Based on modern technology, the standalone platform offers fast and accurate computations. When necessary, connection with Flux finite element software enables more advanced studies, taking into account more complex phenomenon.

Electromagnetic Compatibility

To meet time-to-market requirements and comply with product
specifications, the virtual prototyping of EMC phenomena is widely
performed in the early design stages. Altair provides complete simulation
solutions to address these challenges for low and middle frequencies.

Power Cables and Busbars

Power cables, power bars and busbars are used to distribute and
transmit electrical energy through the grid. Their design must comply
with several electromagnetic and thermal constraints to guarantee high
performance, safety and efficiency. Altair offers the innovative Flux
software to answer these challenges.
