Configure Virtual Vehicle Scenario and Test

Use the Scenario and Test pane to configure your virtual vehicle test plan. The available options depend on the virtual vehicle Powertrain architecture and Model template parameter settings.

Virtual Vehicle Composer app Scenario and Test pane

If you set Scenario to Drive Cycle, you can select:

  • Standard drive cycles from industry agencies and institutions. The default selection is the FTP75 drive cycle. Certain drive cycles include gear shift schedules, for example, JC08 and CUEDC.

  • Wide open throttle (WOT) parameters, including nominal reference speed and simulation time.

To choose one or more existing drive cycles, click the Scenario and Test tab and follow these steps:

  1. From Scenario, select Drive Cycle.

  2. From Drive cycle, select a drive cycle.

  3. Click Add to Test Plan.

If you select Combined longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamics (not applicable in this example), you can also choose from several vehicle dynamics tests under Scenario:

  • Increasing Steer

  • Swept Sine

  • Sine with Dwell

  • Fishhook

For this example, use the default FTP75 drive cycle.
