AN APPROACH TO CREATING A SIMPLE DIGITAL TWIN FOR OPTIMIZING A SMALL ELECTRIC CONCEPT VEHICLE DRIVETRAIN
Schlagworte:3D Model-Based Simulation; Digital Twin; Electric Vehicle Drivetrain
Since modeling and simulation are integral tools in engineering, the question is not if they should be used in a design process, but rather how they should be used to deliver the best solutions. The objective of this pa-per is to outline an approach to creating a simple Digi-tal Twin for a small electric vehicle drivetrain utilizing only parametric 3D CAD models, widely used simu-lation tools and some programming libraries. First, the concept of the Digital Twin, its beneﬁts, then the possibilities of using Generative Design are brieﬂy in-troduced, afterwards electric vehicles’ advantages are reviewed. In an example project the properties and opportunities of the 3D CAD- and simulation models are demonstrated. Finally, future improvements and automated optimization opportunities are discussed.
