Project: Simulation of Hybrid Vehicle Architectures
Objective: To provide 'proof of concept' work for selected hybrid vehicle architectures (component choice, layout and interconnections) in a particular application.
Key partners: Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors European Technical Centre, Froude Hofmann, Claytex, Arup and Axon Automotive
Impact: Our simulation tools, developed jointly with our industry partners, have now been applied to real world challenges facing automotive manufacturers and suppliers, fleet users consultants and test specialists. Over 40 companies have now worked with us and have received benefits including optimised powertrain design, improved supervisory control strategies and increased confidence in concept vehicle development and component sizing.
