The modern automotive industry is facing challenges of ever-increasing complexity in the electrified powertrain era. On-board diagnostic (OBD) systems must be thoroughly validated and calibrated through many iterations to function effectively and meet the regulation standards. Their development and design process is more complex when prototype hardware is not available, and therefore virtual testing is a prominent solution, including Model-in-the-loop (MIL), Software-in-the-loop (SIL), and Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations. Virtual prototype testing, relying on real-time simulation models, is necessary to design and test new era’s OBD systems quickly and on a large scale. The new fuel cell powertrain involves new and previously unexplored failure modes. To make the system robust, simulations are required to identify different failures. Thus, it is imperative to build simulation models that can reliably reproduce failures of components like the compressor, recirculation pump, humidifier, or cooling systems. As OBD regulations become more stringent and advanced, it is challenging to keep pace and perform comprehensive testing in real-world environments. This webinar will present the necessary fuel cell model developments to reproduce relevant failure modes, which in turn can be detected by a control model developed in Simulink. Then the viability of this approach will be demonstrated by showing MIL and HIL test results.

Topics include: 

• The automotive industry is facing challenges in the electrified powertrain era due to the complexity of on-board diagnostic (OBD) systems

• Virtual testing, including MIL, SIL, and HIL simulations, is necessary for designing and testing new era’s OBD systems quickly and in scale when prototype hardware is not available
• Simulation models that can reliably reproduce failures of components like the compressor, recirculation pump, humidifier, or cooling systems in the new fuel cell powertrain, will be key
• MIL and SIL testing provides a quick way for controls engineers to develop new strategies at the system level to adhere to new OBD regulations
• High fidelity physics-based Real Time plant model on HIL systems allows engineers to perform fault insertions tests on the software and leave the lab environment with a certain degree of guarantee
