Design, Simulation and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Testing of an Electric Scooter Powertrain

Design, Simulation and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Testing of an Electric Scooter Powertrain

This publication focuses on an algorithm to control a brushless DC motor. A Speedgoat performance machine runs a digital twin of the motor on both the CPU and the FPGA-based I/O module IO334 and is connected via the analog channels to the controller, an MCU by Texas Instruments. With this HIL setup, the performance of the control algorithm was tested.

Assessment of State-of-Charge Estimation Method for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Assessment of State-of-Charge Estimation Method for Lithium-Ion Batteries

In this paper, a numerical model of lithium-ion batteries is developed and deployed to a Speedgoat Baseline target machine. The estimation method for the state-of-charge (SOC), based on a nonlinear autoregressive with exogenous input (NARX) and artificial neural networks (ANNs) that are correctly trained with multiple datasets, is designed, and experimentally validated by hardware-in-the-loop simulation.

Vorticity Dynamics of Leading-Edge Vortex Formation on a Revolving Wing

Vorticity Dynamics of Leading-Edge Vortex Formation on a Revolving Wing

A leading-edge vortex (LEV) forms and remains stably attached on high angle-of-attack (AoA), low aspect ratio (AR) wings undergoing revolving or flapping motion at an insect’s wing. Here, the LEV formation on a revolving wing is investigated. The 'Shake-the-box' (STB) Lagrangian particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) system and a volumetric patching process helped reconstruct the entire time-resolved flow field.
