During the concept phase engineers must consider different engines, gearboxes, heat exchangers, fans, carry-over parts, batteries etc. as well as control elements and actuators.
A general issue for state of the art vehicle developments is the dimensioning of the cooling system to guarantee the required performance and emission levels. The Engineering Center in St. Valentin has developed the KULI simulation software to generate and optimize the thermal management system meeting all requirements on component-, system- and vehicle level. KULI assists on specifying and validating OEM requirements right from the start such as legal compliance, standards and regulations.
