Series Hybrid Electric Vehicle with Cooling System – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Series Hybrid Electric Vehicle with Cooling System

This model represents a series-HEV model with a cooling system. The model features a physics-based Li-ion battery pack, an IC engine, electrical motors/generators, a power controller, and a cooling system. The vehicle chassis is modeled as a 2D vehicle dynamics with a simplified Pacejka tire model.

The coolant fluid, pushed through the system by a pump, takes the heat emitted by the engine block and the battery pack away and dissipates the heat captured into the surrounding air through the radiator. The air flow into the radiator is regulated based on the vehicle speed and by a fan.

A related webinar, Physical Models of Automotive Batteries for EV and HEV Vehicles is also available.
