Powertrain Reference Applications

Internal combustion engine, hybrid, and electric vehicle reference applications

The reference applications are fully assembled models of automotive powertrains, including spark-ignition (SI), compression-ignition (CI), hybrid, and electric systems. For design tradeoff analysis and component sizing, control parameter optimization, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing, start with one of the vehicle reference applications. Before integration with the vehicle model for CI or SI engine and controller calibration, validation, and optimization start with one of the internal combustion engine dynamometer reference applications.
