The increasing demand for next-generation mobility makes electric powertrain development increasingly important. GT-SUITE offers a comprehensive workflow for developing electric powertrains for your application, providing not only accuracy but also quick turnaround times. We enable the parallel development of an e-motor, battery pack, and inverters, as well as their integration and optimization to evaluate the overall system performance.


Companies in the electric powertrain sector face the daunting task of optimizing system efficiency, seamlessly integrating complex components, and meeting stringent performance and safety standards—all within the constraints of a limited budget. This multifaceted challenge demands innovative solutions to drive the advancement of electric vehicle technology.

Design Complexity

Each component of an electric powertrain has a large design space to explore, and exploring the trade-offs of each requires physics-based modeling. With Gamma Technologies’ physics-based modeling solutions,

trade-offs between different battery chemistries, motor architectures, and inverter architectures can all be reliably explored and quantified very early in the design stage.


Thermal Management

Elevated temperatures and temperature fluctuations pose significant risks to electric powertrains, potentially leading to motor demagnetization, diminished battery health, and temperature derating in inverters.

Thermal analysis is essential for ensuring that these interconnected elements function harmoniously within safe temperature limits, optimizing the electric powertrain's overall performance and reliability.


System Performance

Electric powertrains involve complex interactions among batteries, inverters, electric motors, and control systems. Achieving optimal performance requires balancing numerous factors such as energy efficiency,

thermal management, and power delivery across various driving conditions. In essence, the challenge lies in orchestrating a multitude of interconnected components to deliver optimal and reliable performance across a range of conditions, making electric powertrain development a complex and demanding task.



With the inherent quietness of electric motors, any noise, vibration, or harshness becomes more perceptible, influencing the overall driving experience. Managing eNVH is not only vital for meeting customer

expectations regarding vehicle comfort but also plays a crucial role in complying with evolving regulatory standards. By considering motor and inverter design alongside control algorithms, engineers can identify and address potential sources of noise and vibration. Thus, a comprehensive approach to eNVH is essential for delivering a refined, enjoyable driving experience in the evolving landscape of electric mobility.
