 Romax Technology's India Innovation Summit & User Conference 2018

Multi-Physics Optimisation of Electrified Drivelines

24th July 2018,  MCCIA Trade Tower, Pune


We are delighted to announce this year’s Romax India Innovation Summit & User Conference 2018, which will be taking place in Pune the 24th July 2018 and Chennai 26th July 2018.

It is now 6 years since we introduced the theme of electrification to our forums, highlighting the pioneering work that Romax was doing on understanding the behaviour of integrated electro-mechanical drivelines. In this time, it has grown from a curious sideshow to be the central theme of our forum, and of course of the industry as a whole.

The theme of this year’s Summit is “Multi-Physics Optimisation of Electrified Drivelines”. One key challenge in designing of these drivelines is in understanding the way that different physical phenomena interact with one another. It is not sufficient to consider one type of physical behaviour in isolation, but neither is it acceptable to cross-couple every conceivable interaction in a slow and confusing multi-physics mega-model.

At this year's Innovation Conference and User Summit, you will see how Romax have gone about developing a pragmatic approach, understanding where these influences are significant and need to be included, and identifying where they can be discarded. A range of presentations from Romax and its partners will illustrate how this innovation has been applied to ‘Right First Time’ design.
