Modeling Techniques Improve Ignition System Simulation Accuracy 930206

Containing a mix of analog electronic, digital switching and mechanical elements, an ignition system can be considered an automotive “acid test” of simulator performance. Over the years, simulation technology has advanced to the point where various technology combinations can be accurately simulated, and interplay between the elements can be studied prior to prototype fabrication. This paper discusses the various aspects of modeling as applied to the simulation of ignition systems and offers suggestions for simulating other automotive applications.
