If you set Scenario to Drive Cycle, you can select:

  • Standard drive cycles from industry agencies and institutions. The default selection is the FTP75 drive cycle. Certain drive cycles include gear shift schedules, for example, JC08 and CUEDC.

  • Wide open throttle (WOT) parameters, including initial and nominal reference speeds, deceleration start time, and final reference speed.

To choose one or more existing drive cycles, click the Scenario and Test tab and follow these steps:

  1. Under Scenario, select Drive Cycle.

  2. Under Drive cycle, select the desired drive cycle.

  3. Click Add to Test Plan.

If you have selected Combined longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics (not applicable in this example), you can also choose from several vehicle dynamics tests under the Scenario tab:

  • Increasing Steer

  • Swept Sine

  • Sine with Dwell

  • Fishhook

For this example, use the default FTP75 drive cycle.

After completing this step, see Configure Virtual Vehicle Data Logging.
