LHP Engineering Solutions to Speak at Engine Expo 2015

Dan White, Chief Engineer of the Platform Division of LHP Engineering Solutions, will speak at the Engine Expo in Novi, Michigan on October 20 on the topic of “Model-based design for rapid prototyping of engine controls”.

This technical presentation outlines solutions for quickly developing and validating new engine control strategies using Mathworks Simulink and National Instruments hardware for rapid control prototyping (RCP). Tools and processes to support flexible architecture, model-based design, measurement and calibration are presented. Different approaches will be explored to demonstrate the advantages of alternative methods. Tool selection and the factors to consider relating to system cost, effectiveness, workflow and long-term flexibility will all be discussed. The RCP workflows to be demonstrated using the LHP Panthera RCP Suite will display clear advantages for improving the effectiveness of engine control prototyping.

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.

As driverless technologies rise to prominence, the safety and functionality of crucial automotive systems, is becoming an ever more pressing issue. Because of this, the embedded controls industry is on a lot of people’s minds. Even so, in some sectors, we are suffering from a lack of engineers with the right skill sets to drive the industry forward.
