Provide leadership in vehicle simulation at the system architecture level (through knowledge of the thermal subsystems and interactions).
Relied on as knowledge expert in thermal systems for BEV’s (HVAC, HeatPumps, battery thermal characteristics, etc.).
Generate technical proposals for system level assessments and create Layouts. These are crucial to drive requirements through simulation for specialized test setups.
Evaluate, through simulation, competition technology (this includes pumps, advanced valves, integrated modules, thermal storage, etc.).
Provide objective evaluation of new concepts through sub-system and vehicle level simulation. This includes knowledge of standard drive cycles, especially those pertaining to BEV’s.
Develop numerical models in GT-Suite and Matlab/Simulink.
Preparation of concise reports with clear recommendations for stakeholders and customers.
Accountable for effective technical project tracking to achieve annual objectives .
Continually evolve core simulation competencies as the state-of-the-art changes and as technology requirements change.
Contribute to driving needs for advanced testing and benchmarking (SiL, HiL).
