Powertrain Blockset™ provides fully assembled reference application models of automotive powertrains, including gasoline, diesel, hybrid, and electric systems. It includes a component library for simulating engine subsystems, transmission assemblies, traction motors, battery packs, and controller models. Powertrain Blockset also includes a dynamometer model for virtual testing. MDF file support provides a standards-based interface to calibration tools for data import.
Powertrain Blockset provides a standard model architecture that can be reused throughout the development process. You can use it for design tradeoff analysis and component sizing, control parameter optimization, and hardware-in-the-loop testing. You can customize models by parameterizing components in a reference application with your own data or by replacing a subsystem with your own model.
Run the conventional vehicle reference application and examine the final drive gear ratio impact on fuel economy and tailpipe emissions.
Calculate the city and highway fuel economy for a conventional vehicle with a 1.5–L spark-ignition (SI) engine.
Examine the impact of the conventional vehicle transmission efficiency on the powertrain efficiency.
Use these reference application projects as a starting point for your own internal combustion engine vehicle models.
Use these reference application projects as a starting point for your own hybrid and electric vehicle models.
Create compression-ignition (CI) engine variants to use with internal combustion engine reference applications.
