Overview

Optimal and efficient use of energy at any operating point of the vehicle is of highest importance for the automotive industry.

Therefore the main focus of vehicle engineers lays on the powertrain system, heating and air conditioning, as well as engine cooling to ensure safe operation. The software package KULI has a long tradition in simulating and optimizing the thermal management system for  automotive applications.

In future it is necessary to facilitate a holistic consideration of energy flows, which means that mechanical power, electric power and thermal power have to be simulated at the same time and optimized in parallel.

For this simulation task KULI will effectively support the engineer in setting up system components and control strategies with the aim to optimize performance, comfort and operating reliability of the vehicle.
