Optimization of Electrical Systems and their Components

Simulation for Electrification

The simulation of vehicles with different levels of electrification (from HEV to PEV), the optimization of electrical systems and their components (such as electric drives, batteries and fuel cells) under completely new operating conditions and improvements in the performance of electrical turbochargers are just a few examples of AVL's innovative simulation capabilities in the huge field of new and challenging technology trends.

Multi-physics Simulation Solutions for Fuel Cells

AVL offers simulation solutions for fuel cells supporting component and system development from concept to integration and testing. Consistent and scalable modelling approaches ranging from complex physics to the empirical level are provided.
AVL CRUISE™ supports battery development on a system level including all other electrical components required to model and analyze any kind of EV/HEV drivetrain configuration including multiple electrical network levels within one vehicle. It enables component analyses within an entire vehicle system to ease up component specification, concept selection and confirmation to match given requirements. Results can be used as input for detailed component design like component time-based duty cycle...
Since control units are an essential vehicle part, supporting development of different xCU by integration capabilities from MiL to SiL to HiL is one of the basic capabilities of AVL CRUISE™. The whole system simulation level enables the analysis and development of different controllers with a focus on interactions between different components and systems as well as separate, component-dedicated control units. The open integration concept with a wide range of interfaces to leading control unit...
AVL CRUISE™ supports E-Motor development with several different E-motor models from which the appropriate specific simulation application can be chosen. A map based E-motor model features an integrated inverter, focusing on energy consumption and thermal behavior due to power losses while the fundamental wave E-motor model considers low frequency torsional dynamical behavior and interactions between the electrical and mechanical system. Since the dynamic E-Motor origin is in AVL EXCITE™,...
The AVL CRUISE™ vehicle system simulation solution supports the modeling and analysis of any advanced powertrain and transmission configuration from pure EV to the most complex and innovative HEV configurations. With integrated, scalable, ready-to-use components in the electric and mechanical field it provides model consistency due to its re-usability across entire development process. Due to the integration of the entire vehicle system into one model it can be used for component...
AVL CRUISE™ as an entire vehicle system simulation solution also covers EV/HEV vehicle development through all phases. It supports the seamless vehicle development of any vehicle configuration from conventional vehicles to pure EV and the most complex innovative HEV concepts. AVL CRUISE™ is used for all vehicle component specification, concept selection and confirmation to match given requirements. The open integration concept enables the integration of any user defined component into the...
AVL's rigid/flexible multi-body dynamic software AVL EXCITE™ includes e-machine and electric network components for the dynamic analysis of electrified powertrain systems.
