The auto industry is in transformation. New generation vehicles deploying hybrid (HEV), fully electric (EV), and fuel cell powerplants are presenting significant challenges to automotive engineers. The complexity of the automobile has increased exponentially in the past decades with higher performance components and digital control. This has triggered a design revolution in the industry called Model Based Design (MBD) which stresses detailed modeling and simulation steps prior to committing to metal and plastic. With new generation vehicles the need for MBD is considerably greater due to increasing complexity. The battery is becoming one of the most critical components in alternative powerplant development. This webinar presents some leading work in the development of high fidelity physical models of automotive batteries, including conventional lead-acid, but also NiMH and Lithium. Developed as part of the research program for the NSERC/Toyota/Maplesoft Industrial Research Chair for Mathematics-based Modeling and Design, these models will plug into comprehensive system models for HEV and EV applications.
Additionally, Dr. McPhee and Dr. Thanh-Son Dao will discuss new software tools that deploy symbolic techniques for physical modeling. In particular they will present the application of MapleSim and Maple for efficiently managing the mathematics of models and quickly developing complete system models. They have found the symbolic approach to be an effective way to develop simulation models that have very high fidelity, compared to conventional modeling tools, and fast realtime speeds for HIL testing.
