Model-Based Calibration Toolbox

MBC Model Fitting and MBC Optimization Apps

The MBC Model Fitting and MBC Optimization apps are included in Model-Based Calibration Toolbox. You can find them, along with the rest of the apps for your installed products, by clicking the Apps tab in the MATLAB Toolstrip.

The MBC Model Fitting and MBC Optimization apps solve complex powertrain problems.

The MBC Model Fitting app is a flexible, powerful, intuitive graphical interface for designing a test plan based on Design of Experiments, and creating models that represent collected data. Using the MBC Model Fitting app, you can:

  • Reduce expensive data collection time with Design of Experiment tools.
  • Create and evaluate optimal, space-filling, and classical designs, and constraints can be designed or imported.
  • Capture the nature of variability inherent in engine data with hierarchical statistical models, accounting for variation both within and between tests.
  • Evaluate statistical models and experimental designs.
  • Choose from an extensive library of prebuilt model types, or build a custom user-defined model.
  • Export models to the MBC Optimization app, or to MATLAB or Simulink.
Model-Based Calibration Toolbox Apps

The MBC Optimization app provides tools for calibrating lookup tables for your electronic control unit (ECU).

As engines get more complicated, and models of engine behavior more intricate, it is increasingly difficult to rely on intuition alone to calibrate lookup tables. The MBC Optimization app provides analytical methods for calibrating lookup tables.

The MBC Optimization app uses models of the engine control subsystems to calibrate lookup tables. You can fill and optimize lookup tables in existing ECU software using MBC Model Fitting app models. From these models, the MBC Optimization app builds steady-state ECU calibrations.

You can also compare lookup tables directly to experimental data for validation.

Model-Based Calibration Toolbox Apps

Apps are interactive MATLAB programs you can use without writing any code. Most toolboxes come with apps, and you can download more for free from the MATLAB File Exchange. You can also package and share your own apps.
