EV Motor/Model-based Environments

Renesas Electronics Corporation

Visualize the efficiency by simultaneously modeling/simulating microprocessors, power devices and EV motors!

In HEV/EV development calls for optimization that takes into account dynamics that are not visible through traditional prototyping (efficiency/safety). This emphasizes the importance of implementing model-based development and data visualization through the use of simulation.

Renesas implements modeling solutions that leverage device capabilities and characteristics available only to semiconductor manufacturers to provide a high-speed, high-accuracy, high-quality Model-in-the-Loop Simulation environment (MILS) linked with dSPACE tools. We have also begun to offer the evaluation environment, Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) that combines working prototypes and models.

Using this allows the optimization of not just the microprocessors, but of the overall system itself including the power device and motor. This makes it easier to start large motors and receive real-time efficiency data.
