GT-SUITE v2023 Released!
Battery safety and failure mitigation: Define your own chemical side reactions in GT-AutoLion for a more physics-based model for thermal runaway propagation, including the venting of gaseous products to GT’s flow domain.
Motor/Drive Efficiency: We have increased the accuracy of motor power loss maps calculated with GT-FEMAG by adding rotor and stator temperature dependency. In addition, we have enabled the use of the GT-SUITE Optimizer for GT-PowerForge inverter models.
Heat Exchanger Performance: Through a new high-fidelity condensation and frosting/melting model, users can now study the impact of heat exchanger frosting on vehicle performance and range.
Controls Optimization and Verification
Dynamic ECMS: GT-SUITE is now capable of providing the optimal controls (ECMS) solution for multi-physics dynamic, forward-facing xEV system models. Look for the new ECMSController template in the Controls Library.
Fast VTM Plant Models: GT-SUITE now provides an automated tool to tag all thermal management piping circuits which can be reduced to save CPU time. The new automation of tagging circuits can greatly speed up the process to go from detailed to fast running model for controls development.
Effortless integration of SIMULINK models in GT-SUITE: You can forget the need to compile SIMULINK models to import them in GT-SUITE. GT-SUITE can now automatically open a MATLAB session and co-simulate SIMULINK models directly.
The Potential Power of Hydrogen
Hydrogen research is today enjoying significant momentum as the world is attempting to make carbon-free fuels an important part of our clean and secure energy future, especially for the marine and locomotive industry. Within GT-SUITE, new templates have been developed to model PEM electrolyzer stacks. Along with this, a new model has been developed to predict fuel stratification for engines with direct injection of gaseous fuels such as hydrogen. To model production of hydrogen from other fuels to use in fuel cells and combustion engines, example models of fuel reformers for methanol, methane, and ammonia have also been created.
3D Vehicle Dynamics – 3D Suspension Builder
Users can generate four common independent suspension configurations parametrically using hard points and geometry with 3D visual support. The Suspension3D template removes barriers for creating suspension models by reducing setup time. Additionally, the parametric approach enables suspension optimization by removing the manual steps required to manipulate geometry in previous versions.
Enhanced Machine Learning
Users can now import multiple datasets to DOE-POST, apply training, validation, and test labels to those datasets, train deep neural networks, and export them back to GT-SUITE. Optionally utilize new Python API for creating and training metamodels. This improves the process for training data to fast-executing and accurate metamodels.
