WARwick Powertrain Simulation Tool for ARchitectures
In support of the automotive industry’s development of eco-friendly vehicles, WMG has a research team working on hybrid vehicle powertrain simulation and control. The team has developed a suite of simulation packages, one of which is a modelling structure called WARwick Powertrain Simulation Tool for ARchitectures (WARPSTAR), to address a wide range of issues.
WARPSTAR is a drive cycle-led simulation structure to facilitate the powertrain modelling of hybrid vehicles. The principal use of the package is to provide ‘proof of concept’ work for selected hybrid architectures (component layout and interconnections) in a particular application, with typical outputs being electrical energy use and fuel consumption/CO2 emissions. It is also suitable as a platform for developing rulebased supervisory control and through an iterative process can perform component sizing.
