Virtual Model Approach (VMA) – SETCON Technology

As a pioneer in electro-mechanical differential technology (SETCON®) for industrial applications, we are constantly striving to further improve and optimize our systems. We focus on the design, the calculation and the analysis of our systems in order to guarantee excellent results on our test benches and afterwards in the field. We use the latest and most advanced analysis tools that go far beyond industrial standards.

A recent study at the MES2018 conference in cooperation with the company AVL List GmbH from Graz / Austria shows which innovative way SET goes in its calculations. Under the slogan “Virtual Model Approach” virtual and highly dynamic models of the entire drive train are mapped. All environmental influences (e.g. mains fluctuations) and their effects on the SETCON® system are taken into account. This allows better than ever to eliminate design weaknesses at a very early stage of development and later ensure reliable and long-lasting operation of the drive.
