Model electrothermal behavior in battery cells. Include charge dynamics, aging, thermal, and heat transfer effects. Parameterize cells based on manufacturer data sheets.
Generate Simscape battery pack models using MATLAB commands. Define pack architecture, model heat transfer, visualize layout, and customize model fidelity.
Model cooling plates with customizable fluid paths and thermal connections to the battery pack. Explore cell-to-cell temperature variation and measure cooling efficiency.
Develop algorithms for state of charge (SOC) and state of health (SOH) estimation, cell balancing, and thermal management. Generate code for use in embedded controllers.
Verify system behavior under conditions that cannot be easily tested with hardware prototypes. Run sets of tests in parallel on a multicore workstation or a cluster.
Convert your Simscape model to C code to test control algorithms. Run HIL tests on dSPACE®, Speedgoat, OPAL-RT, and other real-time systems before performing physical tests.
Test integration of electrical, thermal, mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems in a single environment. Identify integration issues and optimize system-level performance.
From Research To Production
Use Simscape models to refine requirements, design control systems, test embedded controllers, and support in-service operation as a digital twin.
