Pushing New Limits
Together, Ansys and Porsche Motorsport are leading the field in the race to next-generation e-mobility. As Porsche’s Official Technology Partner of the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team, Ansys is powering the design of the automaker’s first-ever, fully electric race car — the Porsche 99X Electric.
This exciting partnership pairs our industry-leading engineering simulation with Porsche’s high-performance automotive engineering, in the development of the Porsche E-Performance Powertrain. Our electrification solutions support Porsche Motorsport’s mission to maximize powertrain efficiency in its electric race cars — and passenger electric vehicles.
Powering Leading-edge E-mobility
From maximizing electromagnetic torque and power density to rapidly predicting the power converter and battery temperatures to maximizing overall efficiency of the electric powertrain, Porsche engineers leveraged Ansys’ system-level Multiphysics tools to design the winning formula for the 99X Electric.
These technologies helped Porsche engineers decrease the need to build physical prototypes, enabling virtual testing of design concepts to quickly arrive at an optimum design. This delivered significant energy efficiency for vital 99X Electric subsystems and components, equipping the car to maintain tremendous speeds over extended distances on the track.
