Powertrain Controls

Controls are a key characteristic to differentiate the behavior of the powertrain in regards to vehicle performance, emissions, robustness of diagnostic and brand style (Brand DNA). AVL can deliver independent and modular powertrain software control solutions from prototype through to production to meet individual customer demands.

Products & Services

AVL offers a high quality development service for battery management systems, e-motor controls, vehicle and hybrid control units for prototype and serial development (SOP) projects. We guarantee automotive standards and a perfect solution designed for your needs.
AVL CRUISE™ open integrative environment and AVL CRUISE™ M as multi-disciplinary modeling environment enables usage and structuring of different physical domain model to support the function development and calibration of various controllers which are essential part of the modern and future vehicle. Models can be plant and re-used in development of different controller (ECU, TCU, HEV, Aftertreatment, etc.) with a wide integration range to the main global control test platforms.
We achieve pioneering tasks for future-oriented technologies in the area of the semi-conductor - in compliance with AVL principles. Our range of products contains traction converters for vehicles, on-board converters and loading systems. The need for a compact installation space for the components is also taken into consideration. At the industrialization stage, we regulate the development costs with modern simulation processes to prevent an unnecessary financial burden.
AVL CRUISE™ M Engine package provide a real-time capable internal combustion engine model dedicated to the investigation of transient operating conditions offline for CAE applications and online integrated in the testing environment. It is running in the time domain using transient and steady-state 0D and quasi-dimensional component models alternatively with a Crank-angle-resolved or data driven surrogate cylinder module.
In hybrid concepts the most essential part is a controller which makes decisions about power management as well as taking care that components are used in an optimal operating range to lower energy consumption and extend component life. AVL CRUISE™ provides the proper modeling environment for this application with interface capability that allows seamless and consistent control function development and calibration.
The continuously increasing engineering requirements regarding fuel consumption, emissions or advanced diagnosis are nowadays the main drivers for most powertrain development activities. Optimized engine control is now a key factor in being able to meet these challenges. Our engine control solutions help you today, for tomorrow's challenges!
The different detail and complexity level modeling environment offered by AVL CRUISE™ provides the capability to work with the transmission model with just the right level of fidelity throughout the entire function development and calibration process. Unlimited assembling capabilities allow for model reuse regardless of the transmission type, supporting the most innovative concepts before any HW prototype is available.
AVL offers a high quality development service for 12 V and 24 V controls units covering a wide variety from simple up to high complex automotive and automotive related systems. These control units support all common voltage levels from 12 V, 24 V through 48 V up to 800 V.
Since control units are an essential vehicle part, supporting the development of different xCU by integration capabilities from MiL to SiL to HiL is one of the basic capabilities of AVL CRUISE™ and AVL CRUISE™ M. An overall system level simulation enables the analysis and development of different controllers, focusing on the interactions between different components and systems as well as separate, component-dedicated, control units. The open integration concept, with a wide range of...
