Improving H/Ev Motor Control Using Simulation in Labview

By Eric Neleigh
September 19, 2018

Category • Electric Vehicle, Hybrid

One of the most integral elements of the Hybrid Electrical Vehicle or HEV is the control technology. Due to these vehicles operating in a vast range of environments the motor will regularly switch through various loads. With that said, the most important issue is improving motor control efficiency while maintaining performance and avoiding damage. It’s wise to test control algorithms for motor control through simulation before applying power to any circuit. Especially when working with hundreds of volts and/or hundreds of amps of current. A simple mistake in your control algorithm can damage components or even worse cause collateral damage.

Category • Electric Vehicle, Powertrain

The driver of electric and hybrid vehicle development is a major increase in stringent government emissions regulations. In 2011, the Obama administration announced an agreement with the thirteen largest automakers to increase the average fuel economy to 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. The agreement resulted in new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations for model years between 2017-2025. With cleaner emissions in mind, hybrid vehicles are rising in popularity. HEVs offer a cleaner, redesigned powertrain nad unique advantage in efficiency improvements
