Vehicle simulation environment

  • 15-Mar-2010 04:27 EDT

IAV Automotive Engineering has developed and integrated a vehicle simulation environment, VeLoDyn, into its system and control development process for hybrid and electric drive vehicles. The VeLoDyn simulation environment provides a development framework to foster an engineering team’s design, development, and validation efforts. The process uses advanced modeling and simulation capabilities to develop energy management strategies; vehicle level and subsystem control; safety critical systems such as regenerative braking and battery management systems for production; and proof of concept vehicle applications. System benefits include the transition from system specification to functional validation on engine- and powertrain-based dynamometers; improved development, design, and testing of hybrid and electric drive vehicle control systems; reduced design iterations; development of advanced powertrains with improved quality; and the ability to develop technologies with reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
