This session deals with the electrical distribution system (EDS), increasing content/complexity, and the optimization of the systems in vehicles. The EDS is the nerve system of the vehicle and is far reaching into all areas of the architecture. This session will review the associated components for the wiring systems: wiring/cables, connectors, harnesses, fuse & relay boxes, etc., and will discuss new technologies that are emerging to address mega trends.

Event
In this session speakers will explore the issues and design strategies of bringing sustainable EV, PHEV and vehicle electrification technologies to market. The session will also explore new technological advances for battery charging, infrastructure improvements, and repurposing/recycling of battery chemistries. Identifying the customer value of these sustainable technologies is key to their success and growth. The design models and systems presented in this session highlight ways to optimize customer value to make these technologies successful. Elements within the EVSE value chain governed by participants such as EVSE manufacturer, utility provider, network operators, individual site owners, and finally the EV owner and consumer for enhancement to sustainability initiatives will also be explored.

Driven by the need for lower emissions, better fuel economy and higher efficiency, hybrid vehicles are appearing in many different configurations on today's roadways. While the powertrain components such as the drive motor, motor controller and cooling system are somewhat familiar to the automotive industry, the battery systems are a relatively unfamiliar aspect. This seminar will introduce participants to the concepts of hybrid vehicles, their missions and the role of batteries in fulfilling those requirements.

ISO 26262: Road Vehicle - Functional Safety is now becoming a condition of compliance for doing business in the automotive sector. The Scope states: “ISO 26262 is intended to be applied to safety-related systems that include one or more electrical and/or electronic (E/E) systems and that are installed in series production passenger cars with a maximum gross vehicle mass up to 3,500 kg…" This course provides background for reading and applying the standard and explains its scope, the major differences from the general safety standard IEC 61508, and how the scope changes with the introduction of new systems.

Due to the increasing number of engine setting parameters to be optimized, model based calibration techniques have been introduced to medium speed engine testing to keep the number of engine tests low. Polynomials in combination with d-optimal test plans have been proven to be a good choice for modeling the stationary behavior of selected engine outputs. Model approaches like artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been rarely used for medium speed purposes since they require quite high amounts of testing data for model training. To evaluate the potential of these model approaches radial basis function networks, a subclass of neural networks, as well as Gaussian processes have been investigated as alternatives to polynomials. A manageable amount of tests according to an adapted d-optimal test plan was carried out at a test bench.

The calibration process of modern combustion engines is characterized by a wide range of experimental test runs. Whereas in the past mainly standardized test bench runs were carried out, the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) and real drive emissions will require additional experimental efforts. In order to provide solutions for a time and cost efficient calibration process, Bertrandt has developed in the work of Burggraf [BUR15] an innovative optimization algorithm. While common Design of Experiments (DOE) optimization approaches are usually based on stationary engine operation points, the Bertrandt tool b.eco (Bertrandt. Engine Calibration Optimization) uses a quasi-stationary measurement procedure. The time necessary for establishing a steady state of the engine can thus be omitted. On the one hand, this leads consequently to a general reduction of time.

Due to growing variant diversity and shortened product development time the calibration task of transmission control unit (TCU) parameters constitutes a challenge in further vehicle development. In future, tools and methods are required for an efficient adjustment of calibration parameters. Model based calibration methods represent a promising approach to calibrate these parameters effectively. For computer-aided calibration a powertrain model is required which simulates the behavior of the system accurately. Additionally the functionality code of the TCU is needed to calculate certain signals for engine- and clutch-control during the gearshift operation. The TCU software requires certain state quantities of the powertrain which have to be simulated explicitly and accurately by the model. Furthermore a residual bus simulation for all input signals of the TCU software has to be implemented, which normally are not provided by the powertrain model.
