If a picture is worth a thousand words, a model is worth a thousand specification line items
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a model is worth a thousand specification line items. As Electric Vehicle (EV) Powertrain developments grow more complex, model-based design and test is a paradigm—a way of working and thinking—that promises true understanding, clear yet detailed communication, and efficiency in engineering and operational processes. But, for the EV’s traction inverter incl. its controller and the connected electric motor this requires high fidelity modeling of complex non-linear behavior to achieve the needed simulation accuracy.
Automotive test engineers focused on traction inverters and electric motors want to shift as much test as they can as early in the development process as possible to simulation, to decrease the dependence on costly dynamometer and field testing. They need to validate their system design and software algorithms with model-based simulation to decouple from other team schedules, increase test coverage, and lower the cost of finding and fixing bugs early on. 
Therefore, an open and extensible test solution incorporating high fidelity power electronics and electrical machine HIL simulations allow validation engineers to address these needs and achieve greater test coverage while shortening test times and reducing total cost of test. 
Join this webinar and learn how model-based simulation on FPGAs and an integrated systems approach addresses both the need for flexibility paired with off-the-shelf delivery.
