Hybrid Electric Vehicle Model in Simscape™
This example includes a Hybrid Electric Vehicle model in Simscape™, demonstrating some new features of the recent releases of MATLAB® and featuring Subsystem Reference which enables modular physical modeling workflow.
The model includes an abstract Power-Split Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) model with a simple rule-based controller for speed tracking simulation. It can be used to better understand how to work with Subsystem Reference for an automotive application. For a vehicle model that includes more detailed supervisory and engine controllers, please see the reference applications in Powertrain Blockset™. The included abstract model is suitable for the system level simulation of longitudinal vehicle behavior as it runs faster than real time. The model consists of components such as motor, engine, power-split device, and so on, and they are built in a modular manner using Subsystem Reference and Simscape product family demonstrating a workflow where physical components are built and tested individually and also they can be easily integrated into a complete vehicle system model. The HEV model and its component files are managed by a MATLAB project and some components come with their own test setups.
For MATLAB R2022a
The latest version 1.3 is available.
This version requires MATLAB, Simulink®, Simscape, Simscape Driveline™, Simscape Electrical™, Stateflow®, Powertrain Blockset and optionally Parallel Computing Toolbox™.
Download Project - This includes MATLAB Project but does not include Git repository data.
Fork or clone the repository - You can continue development in git, but the repository size is larger than the zip archive because the zip does not include the repository data.
For MATLAB R2021a and R2021b
Version 1.2, which is in maintenance mode, is available.
This version requires MATLAB, Simulink®, Simscape, Simscape Driveline™, Simscape Electrical™, Stateflow®, Powertrain Blockset and optionally Parallel Computing Toolbox™
Download Project - This does not include Git repository data.
How to Use
Open HybridElectricVehicle.prj in MATLAB, and it will automatically open the Live Script HEVProject_main_script.mlx. The script contains the description of the model and hyperlinks to models and scripts.
