To meet increasingly stringent fuel economy and emissions standards, automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers have sought novel technologies to increase fuel efficiency. Given the complexity of vehicle systems, the need for increasingly sophisticated analytic tools to perform concept evaluation, capture multi-domain system interactions, and develop and validate control strategies grows. A Modelica-based platform for simulation of vehicle systems is ideal for this type of work as it naturally captures multi-domain interactions, allows flexibility in model complexity to support a range of applications, and supports integration of physical and control systems.
