Activate e-Mobility Series

This series discusses various aspects of system modeling for e-Mobility studies from overall performance simulations including fuel economy, to model refinements for electric engines and/or vehicle dynamics.

Fuel economy simulations
Activate model of a series-parallel hybrid electric vehicle powertrain to evaluate fuel economy and system performance.

Increasing fidelity of vehicle dynamics models
Activate models of a series-parallel hybrid electric vehicle powertrain coupled with CarSim via the Functional Mock-up Interface.

Increasing fidelity of electric engine models
Comparison of 3 different engine models for an HEV vehicle: Park equations, full 3D Flux model, table method; later one generated by Flux2D.

PMSM simple speed control
Activate model of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) with vector control for speed or torque.
