Performance Evaluation of EV/HEV Systems Using xEV Offline Simulator

2017-01-10
2017-26-0097
This paper introduces xEV Simulator- A MATLAB based simulator platform capable of analyzing EV/HEV powertrain system in both backward and forward modelling. xEV Simulator employs Forward Simulation for drive-cycle performance evaluations and Backward simulation for powertrain component sizing and support xEV powertrain design. The powertrain subsystems are modelled in Simulink. This enables the model based system simulation and further controller prototyping and HiL testing. xEV Offline Simulator GUI enables user to simulate standard EV/HEV configurations with standard drive-cycles. The model parameters of different component subsystems can be configured. The Backward modelling and simulation support the estimation of subsystem values like Propulsion motor, Energy storage, etc., to perform as per the drive-cycle requirement.

BS-VI or equivalent development calls for tremendous efforts in concept investigation and calibration for engine out, after treatment, diagnostic checks, off-cycle emissions, field performance, component safety etc. Achieving calibration quality for all these tasks is very challenging considering development time and cost with conventional physical testing approach. Present article focuses on assessment of testing and calibration using virtual approach. To prove and validate this approach, a six-cylinder heavy duty diesel engine is selected and configured in HiL environment. The engine plant model is built offline and validated with base engine data at steady state and transient operations and RT model is integrated with ECU hardware. Data for plant model corrections is generated with short measurement campaign. Refined real time plant model is prepared for evaluating different calibration strategies on virtual test bed environment.

Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS) is a safety critical system because it affects vehicle stability and dynamics. In EPAS, electric motor takes the power from the battery and delivers this power to rack and pinion only on demand. Since EPAS contains electrical component such as Motor and electronic component such as Electronic Control Unit (ECU), reliability of these components is very important. To ensure safety and reliability, ISO 26262 standards are adapted which are derived from IEC 61508. This standard regulates the product development on system, hardware and software level and manages functional safety for electrical and electronic components. This paper discusses the applicability of the ISO 26262 standard to the development of EPAS ECU with respect to its hardware and software design. Hazard analysis and risk assessment of the basic EPAS architecture is performed and architecture is improved to achieve safety goal as per the standard.

2019-26-0098
Autonomous driving is looked upon as solution for future of automotive vehicles. The technology has tremendous possibilities to improve safety, fuel economy, comfort, cost of ownership etc. The project to develop an autonomous controller from scratch was undertaken, with objective to drive under selected test scenarios. The car, modified to drive using this autonomous controller, is able to handle these scenarios. The key scenarios include ability to successfully drive on tracks with well-marked lanes, Follow the route as per selected trip plan file, recognize and follow all traffic road signs, traffic signals en-route, identify other vehicles on the road or pedestrians in the lane and take the appropriate action. The development was carried out using frugal engineering approach. As the Autonomous Vehicle technology is still under development, the standard proven published approaches are not available.

Challenges Faced for Parameterization & Validation of a Small Gasoline Engine Plant Model for Application of EMS Development

Control algorithm development for typical Engine Management System is a challenging task. To develop a reliable control algorithm, proper closed loop testing environment is required. In such development activity, it is of prime importance to validate the algorithm on a standalone target engine. This can be achieved in engine test cell where the actual engine will be controlled by prototype ECU. But this process has drawbacks like higher testing cost, time consuming, non-reusability of test bed etc. Simulation based engine plant model development for closed loop ECU testing is an effective technique for such application. Various generic engine models are available for such application.to suit a particular target engine these model need to be parameterized with precise engine data. The vehicle parameters used for parameterization are typically obtained from actual test and engine design data.
