GRM Consulting Engineer, Kyle Grubb, Presents at the Future Powertrain Conference

Since 2008, GRM Consulting Ltd have been working with major OEMs to develop innovative methods and processes that enable multiple performance attributes to be optimised concurrently.

During this period, we have explored the development of gearbox, motor and EDU casings and mounting points to deliver noise, stiffness and strength requirements, allowing an EDU and its gear train to achieve the best performance possible.

Additionally, our work has covered novel casing architectures and construction methods, with rapid down-selection of valid technologies.

On the 5th of March our Consulting Engineer, Kyle Grubb, will be giving a presentation on, ‘Achieving True System Optimisation of EDUs through Co-simulation’ at the Future Powertrain Conference in Solihull.
Kyle will discuss how the EDISON project will deliver the integration and optimisation of multiple physics electric drive design requirements.

This presentation will provide an insight into the historical methods and potential valuable key learning points for attendees that GRM have developed in partnership with major OEMs such as Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors and a multitude of academic institutions throughout the UK. The presentation will also look to future methods by presenting details of the Innovate UK co-funded EDISON project.

EDISON brings together Romax Technology, Jaguar Land Rover, Dassault Systemes, the National Physical Laboratory and The University of Sheffield with GRM to investigate the field of transmission optimisation, but with a specific emphasis on the requirements of electric vehicle applications.

The objective of this project is to reduce vehicle emissions by developing novel ferrite motor technology for a passenger vehicle application. An advanced electromechanical analysis toolset will facilitate unprecedented levels of system integration.

This will benefit the user by allowing the electromagnetic, structural strength and dynamic transmission performance of a particular concept to be optimised simultaneously.
