In a joint effort, Dassault Systèmes and Rohm Semiconductor demonstrate how the introduction of silicon carbide (SiC) as a base material in power electronics improves the energy efficiency of a typical electric vehicle. As an application example simulation models of an electric drive and an electric vehicle are chosen.
