The Development of a Simulation Software Tool for Evaluating Advanced Powertrain Solutions and New Technology Vehicles 981125
The drive for developing advanced powertrain solutions such as electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicle traction systems is increasing, principally to meet increasingly stringent legislative demands and partly to satisfy intuitive customer requirements. However, to achieve the potential benefits such technologies offer, these complex systems must be optimized for the particular vehicle and its operating environment. There is therefore, an increasing demand from potential users of new vehicle technologies ranging from system designers to transport operators, for a rapid and cost effective evaluation tool capable of modelling advanced powertrain solutions and the potential effects on the environment.
