In 2014, the Formula 1 technical regulations changed and they introduced a small capacity V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems (ERS). The ERS consists of two electric motor-generators: one is attached to the turbocharger shaft; and the second is attached to the crankshaft. The power rating and energy...
Saab delivers world-leading products, services and solutions for military defence and civil security worldwide. Its Gripen fighter is the first of a new generation, multi-role fighter aircraft that is the most complex and advanced plane Saab has ever built. The fighter is equipped with the latest technology, enabling it...
WMG, formerly Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick, is using Dymola modelling technology to help develop the next generation of low carbon vehicles. The programme, part of the £29 million West Midlands-based Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project (LCVTP), is an advanced research project which will ensure Britain’s...
McLaren Racing, the operating arm of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team, and Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, are pleased to announce a new partnership to further enhance racing car development efficiency. The agreement sees McLaren...
The complexity of automotive powertrains is increasing. As a result it’s becoming increasingly difficult for engineers to determine the optimum specification for the system. The proliferation of control systems also adds to the complexity of the task and increasingly simulation is being used to assist in the development of...
Introduction This article is about practical aspects of tuning linear controllers in models and maintaining awareness of the physical implications of the results, without delving into the theory. We’ll look at a well-behaved model, which nonetheless illustrates a few features available in the MSL, such as: A PID block...
A new addition for the Dymola 2018 FD01 release was the Vehicle Demos library from Claytex. The key purpose of this library is to demonstrate the coupling of multiple automotive Modelica libraries together in a vehicle model. By combining libraries focused on modelling different automotive systems, you can create...
This blog post describes the Dymola compilation process used to compile the C code generated during translation into an application file(s) that is used during simulation. Figure 1 shows the Dymola translation and simulation process diagram in which a Modelica model passes through to generate the Simulation results. Figure...
Abstract: This article is aimed to present Modelica-based simple tic and toc functions and their implementation in Dymola. These functions are created to estimate the total elapsed computer processing unit (CPU) time of repeated model experimentations in Dymola. For this purpose, the getTime() function from Modelica Standard Library (MSL)...
This blog post discusses the fluid connectors based on Modelica.Fluid.Interfaces.FluidPort and the concept of flow and stream variables. Figure 1: Fluid connectors in Modelica Standard Library All the components from Modelica.Fluid can be connected using fluid ports. A flow leaving the connector has a negative sign, while a flow...
