Multinode hardware-in-the-loop system with hybrid vehicle simulation for battery testing
This paper describes a system that not only simulates a battery to the BMS, but also provides simulations of an electric motor, electric motor control unit and vehicle dynamics. Thus, the system will provide a full hybrid vehicle simulation to the BMS under test. This is done via a multinode high-performance HIL system with separate nodes for each of the components described above. These nodes work as one system by communicating with each other via a high-speed interface. The node simulating the battery contains a battery model and a vehicle dynamics simulation model.
