Simcenter Amesim 2019.2: 3 new features explained

By ClaireMaha Mathieu

Last fall, we introduced the new version 2019.2 of Simcenter Amesim. Addressing the ever-changing needs of industries for more accurate and competitive system modeling, we focused on three main topics for the new release’s features:
• Mechatronic and thermofluid system modeling
• User experience
• Openness

To give you a glimpse of the new features in this release, we selected one feature by topic, presented below with a short video.

Mechatronic and thermofluid system modeling: Thermal analysis of electric motors

Many enhancements have been made related to the electrification challenge. Among them, you can now improve performance assessment of e-machines by including its thermal behavior in a more realistic environment. You have now access to a detailed thermal model of the machine representing the different sectors that can be integrated into a complete electric drivetrain. In addition, this allows you to more accurately assess both the electromechanical performance and thermal behavior during driving cycles. Check the video below for a detailed application example.

User experience: the Neural Network builder

We also integrated a neural network builder allowing you to create a neural network, representing static and dynamic systems. Without prior knowledge, you are now able to easily simplify complex dynamic systems into compact, real-time neural networks and re-use them in Simcenter Amesim models. Check the tech tips video below to learn how to use this new tool.

Openness: High performance computing study

From now on, it is easy to submit a Simcenter Amesim model to HPC for non-experts through a dedicated graphical user interface (GUI). To this end, scripts or command lines are not mandatory anymore and you can easily monitor simulation status and access results from the GUI.
