Model-based Drivetrain Development and Rapid Prototyping For a Hybrid Electric Car 2001-01-3422
Due to increasing demands on development time and functionality, the traditional development process has to be overcome by a model-based development process. The latter offers many advantages concerning testing, evaluation and documentation resulting in lower time and cost requirements. However, this model-based development process is only feasible on condition of a proper simulation model and a suitable, adapted Application Product Interface.
We have realised a model- based drivetrain development process which here will be demonstrated for a Series Hybrid Electric Drivetrain (SHEDt).
In this paper, the main steps of the modelling process are shown. As an example for implementation, functionality and reliability of the process, the SHEDt storage system containing a DC / DC converter between DC link and battery is analyzed.
