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.
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.
AVL CRUISE™ and AVL CRUISE™ M deliver the right system plant model fidelity for a wide range of testing applications such as Engine testbed, Battery testbed, E-Motor testbed, etc… The re-use of the multi-physics model ensures on one side consistency, result comparability and the shortening of the test preparation time. On the other side, this enables frontloading of methodology and test procedures which means that more work can be done in the virtual world, significantly reducing costs and...
Battery development on a system level is supported by AVL CRUISE™ which includes a battery resistance model and other electrical components required to model and analyze any kind of EV/HEV drivetrain configuration including multiple electrical network levels within one vehicle.
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...
AVL CRUISE™ supports E-Motor development with several different E-motor models from which the appropriate simulation application can be chosen. The map-based E-motor model with integrated inverter focuses 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 electric and mechanical system. Since the origin of the dynamic E-motor model is in AVL EXCITE™,...
Different application demands across the entire vehicle development process require appropriate levels of engine model fidelity. AVL CRUISE™ includes a map-based engine model while AVL CRUISE™ M offers the next evolution of the AVL multi-disciplinary system simulation solution within the AVL CRUISE™ M engine package. This includes several engine model depths from empirical to physical with crank angle resolved cylinder and gas path (capturing pulsation an air path and drivetrain) and with the...
Transmission development is supported by AVL CRUISE™ vehicle system simulation solution through different development phases. It enables the modeling and analysis of advanced transmission configuration like DCT, AT, AMT, CVT and any other innovative future transmission configuration. An additional fully integrated GSP module is designed to speed up work and efficiency in shifting strategy development from early concept phases onwards, as well as shortening the calibration process with...
AVL CRUISE™ as a vehicle system simulation solution fits perfectly into the vehicle development process from the concept phases on. Even when vehicle prototype is available, the same vehicle system model can be used to validate and improve the simulation model which is then re-used in next development cycle. AVL CRUISE™ supports the seamless vehicle development of any vehicle configuration from conventional vehicles to pure EV and the most complex and innovative HEV concepts.
