IGNITE provides hybrid-electric and full electrical vehicle system modelling capabilities. Systems-level electrical models enable users to characterise the impact and performance of hybrid system design. The smart hybrid controller enables the user to analyse different parallel hybrid architectures without detailed knowledge of control theory. It also enables design of hybrid control functions to optimise vehicle performance and fuel economy.
- Hybrid system specific modelling objects within the Ricardo powertrain library
- Control system modelling capabilities enables users to design, develop, test and optimise hybrid control systems
- Co-simulation with MATLAB/Simulink to support development of the controllers in a different dedicated control development environment
