Recent events such as China’s plans to scrap pure internal combustion engines as soon as 2030, the release of Tesla’s model 3, and announcements by several large automakers about ramping up EV production and possibly eliminating gasoline-powered vehicle production, have accelerated efforts to develop competitive electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid vehicles across the automotive industry i. But, even with falling purchase prices for many hybrids and plug-in EVs (PEVs), rising gasoline prices, and various government incentives for purchasing electrified vehicles, this change isn’t happening overnight.

LHPTS knows that engineers and researchers working to optimize propulsion system performance need a comprehensive and flexible platform designed to evolve with today’s rapidly changing technology. With LHPTS’ ECS and ECS+, engineers and researchers have full authority over all the I/O going into the engine. There are no black boxes and nothing that is a mystery. Additionally, the ECS and ECS+ are inherently open-source platforms, which means users can easily tweak their tests and do whatever they need to do to improve performance.
Today, automotive researchers and engineers are constantly evolving their research to optimize propulsion system control technologies for the vehicles of tomorrow. At labs around the globe, R&D teams are heavily focused on improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions through technology such as more efficient, user-friendly stop-start systems and mild hybrid powertrains.
