Eco-friendly technology

  • 12-Mar-2009 06:08 EDT

An integrated development tool chain for hybrid and electric vehicle applications from dSpace includes prototyping systems; ECU autocoding software; hardware-in-the-loop testing systems for electrical drive simulation; real-time automotive simulation models for simulating electric components such as battery, loads, electric motors, controllers, and inverters; ECU calibration systems; and engineering and consulting services. Prototyping systems improve control designs without manual programming to optimize fuel consumption and reduce emissions. Autocoding software facilitates the development and implementation of control systems. Simulators create a virtual, real-time environment to run test scenarios, while models display the real-time simulation of a vehicle’s electrical system. Measurement, calibration, and diagnostic tasks all can be performed with the same tool using the system.
