HIL Testing EV Drives with PMSM HERO IMAGE

 

The evolution of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is directly related to the development and use of more efficient and reliable components. Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSMs) provide higher efficiency and power density in a smaller frame, which contributes to achieving targets set forth for EVs. This article outlines the benefits of PMSMs in the e-Mobility sector and how Typhoon HIL solutions can help test and validate the complex controllers required by PMSM-based drive units using ultra-high-fidelity simulations of finite element method (FEM) models.

ASIL Hero (1)


Although Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) definitions are well established and understood for Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cars, it is still somewhat unclear which ASIL levels are appropriate for pure electric vehicles (EVs). For example, what are the appropriate ASIL levels for EV Powertrain controllers such as: electric motor drive ECU, battery management ECU, onboard charger ECU, among others. In this blog, we see what ASIL means for EV development and how can Typhoon HIL solutions help you meet ASIL requirements.

Leading DC Fast Charging

 

The main roadblock that currently holds back electric vehicles (EVs) from becoming the mainstream transportation method is their increased charging time in long-distance driving. But this is where DC Fast Chargers (DCFC) come in. DCFC can revolutionize the e-Mobility industry by providing a faster and more efficient charging experience, also enabling the fast charging of electrified fleets and heavy-duty vehicles. For this, power converters and controllers for DCFC need to be widely tested to ensure high efficiency and reliability in the charging process, increasing development complexity.
