Together with our partners, we can carry out both the research-intensive development of new simulation models and their metrological verification in a timely manner.
In cooperation with the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association - ZVEI, PSS develops models for a standardized, corporate-wide definition of compact input parameters for the thermoelectric simulation of electrical components. Our software tools calculate and export these parameters, enabling the user to create equivalent schematics of e.g. cables and contact systems and assign correct values to them.
Please refer to the corresponding guideline of the ZVEI for more details on the definition of compact parameters.
PSS is working with Bayern Innovativ on a standardized evaluation of the ageing behaviour of electrical components in the automotive harness. Our main competence for this project is to make predictions of corresponding times to failure based on given thermal, electrical and mechanical loads.
The working group "ASIL Metrics in the Vehicle Electrical System" of Bayern Innovativ published an overview of the determination of FIT rates in the vehicule electrical system (in german).
University of the Bundeswehr Munich
Through the partnership with the Institute for Mathematics and Computer-Based Simulation and the Institute for Applied Mathematics at the University of the Bundeswehr in Munich, PSS can also competently handle complex numerical simulations and optimization problems.
Bavarian Research Foundation
The Bavarian Research Foundation funded several research projects on the thermal resilience of electrical components at the University of the Bundeswehr in Munich. The industrial partners involved included: Autecto GmbH, Leoni Kabel GmbH, Manuel Jakab Maschinenbau GmbH.
TU Dresden, Chair of High Voltage and High Current Engineering
In cooperation with the Chair of High Voltage and High Current Engineering at the Technical University of Dresden, PSS was able to obtain robust tests for the thermal simulation of HV components.
