Voith Turbo designs eco-friendly trains

By SForero

Sebastian Schmid, development engineer at Voith Turbo explains how Simcenter Amesim supports rail vehicle hybridization at Voith Turbo.

Voith turbo thinks there is a great potential in the future of hybrid vehicles. “We are currently looking for new ways to make our vehicles more fuel efficient and eco-friendly by studying hybrid powertrains.”

“With Simcenter Amesim, we have now the chance to build physical representations of our systems, analyze our models in detail and then optimize the behavior of the whole system when by modifying certain components.”

“By using model-based design we were able to not only to reduce development and optimization time, but we were also able to cut costs by reducing the amount of bench tests”.
