|In the team of ADC-SI (Automotive Development Centre – Sensor Integration) sensor-bearing solutions are being developed for the automotive market, more specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles. In co-operation with the application and business engineers of chassis and steering applications, a project has been initiated with as objective the modeling of the complete steering-gear to investigate the benefits on system level that new improved SKF products can have. The proposed internship includes the creation of (parts of) the complete model including a preliminary validation assessment, as well as studies on the benefits on system level by using SKF products.
The intern will integrate the team of ADC – SI in France and will have the following missions:
Preparation: understanding of the complete system of a steering-gear with Electric Power Steering and the concerned SKF products, both mechanical and mechatronic.
Realization: identification of the blocks and functions to be modeled and their detail including their interface with existing component performance measurements. Realization of the user-friendly simulation tool under LMS AMESim and MATLAB Simulink.
Investigation: by using the realized model, investigate the possible system benefits for different configurations (various SKF products characteristics, sensitivity analysis).
Capitalization: creation of written report on the model and its components (user manual) and the investigation method and results. Presentation of the results to the development team and business team.
