Accelerate Development of Electric Vehicles with Real-Time Testing

Real-time testing accelerates innovation of automotive electrification, from electric powertrains and power management systems to high-voltage DC battery chargers. Furthermore, thorough HIL testing is crucial to de-risk integration testing of electric propulsion and battery management systems.

You will learn how Speedgoat real-time solutions enable electrical and automotive engineers to develop, test, and validate their innovations with hardware prototypes. We'll provide examples that range from controlling and tuning an electric motor drive to verifying the operation of a torque vectoring algorithm against a virtual powertrain.

With multi-core CPUs, Simulink-programmable FPGAs, communication protocols, and a wide range of input/output interfaces, Speedgoat real-time solutions can deploy Simulink-based models in real-time to run in the MHz range, interface with automotive ECUs, and provide power interfaces from a few watts to megawatts. 


Specific topics that will be covered include: 

  • Perform rapid prototyping to test and tune new powertrain controls and power management strategies designed with Simulink 
  • Create real-time digital twins of electric vehicles
  • Run power electronics and electric motors on real-time CPUs or FPGAs
  • Connect real-time models to ECUs with Speedgoat IO protocols or to electrical components with power amplifiers
  • Perform HIL testing of power management systems and battery chargers
