This course is intended for those interested in developing Hybrid Electric Vehicle or pure Electric Vehicle models for fuel economy or range studies.  The following topics will be covered in this course:

Introductory Concepts of GT-SUITE :

  • 1-D Mechanical Simulation
  • Model Setup- initialization, parameters sweeps, Optimization/Design of Experiments
  • Post-processing (GT-POST)
  • Subassemblies: internal, external, encryption of subassemblies

The following vehicle modeling topics will be included:

  • Conventional Vehicle
    • Mapped Engine Model
    • Transmissions (Automatic, Manual, CVT, Other)
    • Vehicle
  • Hybrid Electric Components
    • Battery
    • Electric Motors
    • Energy Management Controls
  • Engine Start/Stop
  • Electric Launch and Assist
  • Regenerative Braking
  • Driving Cycle Analysis (with Model Based Targeting Controller)

If time permits, extra and more specialized topics may be covered.  The topics will selected by the participants.  Some possible topics are:  Advanced Control Strategies, Plug-in Hybrids, Integrated Simulations (e.g HEV+Fast Running detailed engine Model, HEV + Vehicle Thermal Management), Circuit-based modeling of electrical components, Simulink coupling for controls, user-defined

Note:  This course may be offered as a future open registration event OR requested as a custom training at a GTI office location or your location.
