Simulation and visualisation for optimum results

Before concepts for newly developed electronics products are technically implemented, they undergo a test in our simulation area. In this way we speed up development processes and reduce the outlay for mechanical measurements.  To ensure that our simulations are realistic we use appropriate tools such as Matlab/Simulink.

System simulation

  • Execution of system simulations, system studies & overall system simulations
  • Model-based function development according to the V-model
  • Simulation of the system conduct of complex processes & modelling of strongly networked systems
  • Time-range analyses (transient simulations)
  • Development of customer-specific models & model expansions
  • Solving general control-technical tasks

Drive simulation

  • Concept comparison & optimisation of drive systems
  • Application-specific optimisation of drive systems regarding the interaction between motor, electronics, & control strategy
  • Simulation of drive & power electronics, motor & control in various model depths/detailing
  • Development & optimisation of control strategies for EC-drives (power loss optimisation, efficiency, & robustness increase, noise optimisation & optimisation of the overall system conduct)
  • Execution of threshold & worst-case simulations

Controller development and design

  • Draft of digital control concepts (MIL-, SIL-, & HIL-simulation)
