JSOL Corporation (Representative: Mitsutaka Nakamura, President and CEO, hereafter “JSOL”) is collaborating with MathWorks (headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA) to help control engineers export FEA-based motor models into Simulink, enhancing the use of Model-Based Design for developing Electric Vehicles (EV)/Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) and other motor drives.
High-output motors require sophisticated control algorithms to ensure EV/HEV are both responsive and electrically efficient. Model-Based Design helps control engineers use simulation to design and validate the powertrain control systems to ensure optimal motor speed and torque output. The powertrain development process can ensure greater product quality and reliability when engineers share high-fidelity motor model data to concurrently optimize the motor design and motor control system. MathWorks, makers of MATLAB and Simulink, and JSOL, developer of JMAG, are working together to extend Model-Based Design to include high fidelity motor models.
MATLAB and Simulink are recognized software for analyzing and simulating automotive control systems. JMAG is an accomplished FEA environment for designing EV/HEV drive motors. By collaborating to improve how engineers move high-fidelity motor data from JMAG into Simulink, MathWorks and JSOL are helping the automotive industry develop better performing, more efficient, and more reliable electric vehicles. Model-Based Design continues to grow in value to the automotive industry. Further details regarding this partnership will be announced during the JMAG Users Conference, to be held on December 7th and 8th, 2016.
IAV welcomes the collaboration between JMAG and MathWorks to realize high-fidelity model based design:
Simulation technology that integrates motor design and control systems is indispensable to develop a next-generation motor drive system. This technology is indispensable for obtaining an accurate understanding of the behavior of an entire drive system. This collaboration promises to further advance control simulations utilizing high-fidelity FEM motor models.
