Mechanical Systems Simulation with SimDriveline

Register to watch video

In this webinar we demonstrate how to model, simulate, and deploy mechanical powertrain systems using SimDriveline.  The mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and control systems are tested together to detect integration issues and optimize system level performance.

Included are demonstrations and explanations to show you how to:

  • Assemble powertrain systems using SimDriveline
  • Test powertrain efficiency by adding losses to the system
  • Create physical components using the Simscape language  
  • Run in real time on HIL systems using Simscape local solvers

To develop complex powertrain systems efficiently, the ability to balance the tradeoff of model fidelity and simulation speed is necessary.  System-level variants of the powertrain are used to iterate quickly and make high-level design decisions such as determining architecture, while detailed variants are used to perform more in-depth analyses.  The ability to generate c code from the model enables engineers to use Model-Based Design for the entire system (plant and controller).
