Advice for Simulating Electrical Components of a Robot

Hi everyone! I’m currently working as the electrical lead on a robotics project that will be somewhat similar in design to a Roomba, but will have pretty different functions, including a fan and a heater. Because of Covid, we can’t actually work on the project together, so for now we’re doing research and trying to simulate the project through various software. Does anyone know of any decent software that could be useful in specifically simulating the electrical components of a robot?

Bonus question: What kind of components do you think would be most necessary for a roomba-like robot that will need to have a swiveling fan/heater, and communicate with some sort of app. We already have a good number of components, but there are things we might not have thought of. Thanks for your time!
