Abstract:
Engine and drivetrain simulation has become an integral part of the automotive industry. By creating a virtual representation of a physical system, engineers can design controllers and optimize components without producing a prototype, thus reducing design costs. Among the numerous simulation approaches, 1D physics-based models are frequently implemented due to balanced performance between accuracy and computational speed. Several 1D physics-based simulation software packages currently exist but cannot be directly implemented in MALAB/Simulink. To leverage MATLAB/Simulink's powerful controller design and simulation capabilities, a 1D physics-based engine simulation tool is currently being developed at The University of Alabama. Previously presented work allowed the user to connect engine components in a physically representative manner within the Simulink environment using a standard block connection scheme and embedded MATLAB functions. The current model improves usability, simulation time, and flexibility by running the model from a single S-function. Component models, new features, and overall structure of the new model are presented in this paper.
