Energy Management Simulation

One of the primary motivations for developing AVL CRUISE™ M was to offer a comprehensive simulation environment that perfectly meets all the development requirements in the increasing complexity of Vehicle Energy Management Systems (VEMS) and to provide seamless development and optimization capabilities in that field.

Products & Services

AVL CRUISE™ and AVL CRUISE™ M introduce seamless control function development and calibration from MiL to SiL to HiL by using modularity with scalable model fidelity and an open integration concept.
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 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 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.
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...
With its fully integrated Gear Shifting Program (GSP) module, AVL CRUISE™ supports shifting strategy development which is one of the essential parts of the Transmission Control Unit (TCU). Automatically generated shifting patterns help engineers to efficiently analyze a high number of transmission and powertrain variants to find the best fuel consumption and performance trade-off in the early development phases. In the calibration phase, a near-optimized shifting program developed with...
