Automated Design, Optimisation Of EV Transmissions

Cover Story April 2020 Institute for Automotive Engineering (ika) RWTH Aachen University Automated Design Optimisation EV Transmissions

The steps of an automated transmission design discussed in this report build a vital part of the holistic design of complete electric drive modules

At present, the cost of electric vehicles is still comparatively high, which is partly due to expensive battery systems. With an efficient automated development process from the Institute for Automotive Engineering at RWTH Aachen University, the transmissions of electric vehicles can be designed according to demand, so that costs can be saved in the overall vehicle system, for example by using smaller batteries.
