Addressing the Challenges of Electrification

Electrification of systems previously dominated by internal combustion engines presents many challenges to the automotive, aerospace, machinery, and other industries.Disciplines affected include the following:
Noise, vibration, and harshness – e.g. noise quality (whines, etc)
Durability – e.g. motors, driveline durability impacted by electric motor torque profiles
Electric motor design - weight reduction, efficiency, E-M emission?
Thermal management – batteries, control units, motors
Battery technology – charge time, thermal, weight, crash safety, etc
Charging infrastructure

CAE already plays a major role in addressing these disciplines with traditional powerunits, and will no doubt enable engineers to identify solutions to the problems that arise with electrification. Existing CAE methods and processes will require adaption and innovation to support design, development, and manufacture in a timely and effective manner.
