Teaching Experimental Applications (View Specification (docx))

  • Analysis of HYBRID VEHICLES systems.

With the system able to;

  • Make conceptual studies in combined cycle PHEVs simulating the operation of a real vehicle on different journeys and contexts.
  • Assess high-voltage electricity flows.
  • Analyse the power combination of an internal combustion engine and an electric motor/generator.


Technical Details

Interactive panel

The interactive panel has the same devices as a vehicle: start switch, accelerator, brakes, speed selector, A/C switch, and off-board battery charge button (plug-in).

It reproduces the different stages in an engine operation cycle (electric motor, internal combustion engine) as well as the battery pack status (charged, depleted, generator).

Two measuring positions, V1/V2, to check the parameters selected with the software:

  • Battery pack charge level.
  • Battery voltage.
  • Battery charging current.
  • Electric motor work voltage.
  • Vehicle speed.

Virtual model

The hardware trainer is a driving simulator (gear, speed, battery charge, fuel gauge).

All the actions performed on the panel are represented in the software instrument panel.

The software provides information on vehicle performance in figures, graphics, and gauges. The user can choose to view the numerical data screen, the nomogram screen, or the synoptic chart screen.      

The effect of various situations on hybrid vehicle performance can be assessed by programming journeys and carrying out tests. The data can be exported to Excel.

Programming journeys

The virtual model shows all operating stages:

  • Electric motor.
  • Internal combustion engine.
  • Electric motor + internal combustion engine and overlapping mode.
  • Energy restoration and battery charging.


Modelling with MATLAB Simulink®

It is delivered as executable software to be used with no

need of a MATLAB licence, including sources.

SimulHyb offers:

  • Vehicle operating simulation (considering weight, fuel level, vehicle power, etc.)
  • Energy distribution simulation:

– in acceleration mode (consumption).

– in braking mode (recharge).

DIMENSIONS: 446x270x100 mm.
