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...
In the Modelica language, the annotation keyword is used to define graphics, documentation, menus and many other attributes that do not affect the behaviour of the system modelled. In this post I’m going to focus on the class annotations that let you store the simulation settings used to control...
This blog post explains why PID control gains need to be positive. It is important to understand how PID controller works first. The post will consider stability analysis of each control action, i.e. proportional, integral and derivative control individually. Examples and figures are used to demonstrate the result. Tuning...
In a prior post, I wrote about manually specifying derivatives of a function in Dymola. This is necessary in certain cases, especially when external code is used. For the simple function I used in that post and many functions like it, however, there is actually a much easier answer....
The VeSyMA libraries have been used for many different applications, including durability studies. Such studies usually involve recreating a range of different experiments, situations and sometimes very extreme tests designed to push components to their limits. The purpose of these tests is two-fold; firstly, evaluating vehicle response to normal...
INTRODUCTION The Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is one of the most innovative creations the human being has made, in my opinion. The objective of its creation was to be the main source of power to propel vehicles all the way to the modern car as we all know it...
