Powertrain Blockset

Version 1.3, part of Release 2018a, includes the following enhancements:

  • Engine Data Import: Use engine test data to calibrate mapped engines in CI and SI engine dynamometer reference applications
  • Low-Pressure EGR: Default SI engine includes low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation
  • Gear Shift Schedule: Use Drive Cycle block to specify gear shift schedule
  • Transmission Temperature Dependency: Include effects of oil temperature when calculating efficiency loss in transmission blocks
  • Engine Torque Table: Mapped CI Engine block now uses either engine torque or injected fuel mass lookup table

See the Release Notes for details.

Version 1.2, part of Release 2017b, includes the following enhancements:

  • HEV Input Power-Split Reference Application: Use fully assembled model for HIL testing, tradeoff analysis, and control parameter optimization of a power-split hybrid like the Toyota Prius
  • CI and SI Engine Dynamometer Reference Applications: Resize engines and recalibrate controllers based on desired power and number of cylinders
