With LMS Imagine.Lab Hybrid Vehicle, engineers can define, analyze and validate power management, electric systems and engine sizing/architecture for hybrid powertrain systems. It helps to define and specify the best powertrain architecture, taking vehicle thermal and power management into account.
The requirements regarding driving and comfort have become as stringent as fuel consumption and vehicle emission regulations. Hybridization is one of most effective measures to reach challenging emission and fuel consumption targets.
LMS Imagine.Lab Hybrid Vehicle is based on the AMESim multi-domain system simulation approach and provides dedicated tools that help to model and design hybrid engine architectures. With the AMESim models, a conventional propulsion system with an on-board rechargeable energy storage system can be designed through a set of specific multi-domain libraries (IFP-Drive, IFP-Engine, Electric Motors and Drives, Powertrain) and, subsequently, the behavior of the entire system and its individual components can be studied. The AMESim platform also takes into account control systems thanks to advanced real-time interfaces with most commonly used real-time targets.
