Design and test controls of next-gen EVs

Electric vehicles typically have controls for battery management systems (BMS), electric motors and vehicle dynamics, and these can be tested with an automated hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing solution from Speedgoat and MathWorks. Simulink and Speedgoat test systems foster requirements-based testing and allow compliance with any certification workflow for validating functions and safety, such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508. Full vehicle models of a vehicle can be developed, as can models of subsystems such as the powertrain, suspension and brake systems in Simulink and Simscape. Simulink Real-Time can be used to deploy these models onto a Speedgoat test system acting as a digital twin of a plant. Testing can be scaled with multiple test systems, each covering a particular subsystem control function.

Visit Speedgoat’s booth to check out the BMS HIL demo showcasing testing BMS control algorithms, which include state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH) estimation under normal and fault conditions. The battery cell emulator (BCE) allows hundreds of battery cells to be emulated, including their electrical and thermal dynamics.
