Expediting Electrification Through Real-Time Testing

Enabling electrification of everything, from electric transportation to the integration of renewables into the grid

Electrification is key to reducing CO2 emissions and moving towards greener horizons. Therefore, transportation technologies worldwide are combining renewable energy sources with electrical expertise–such as new power electronics, power systems and power management technologies–to innovate and manufacture products that are better for the environment. In developing such electrical transportation solutions and renewable energy sources, model-based design can help facilitate and expedite the innovation process.

Electrical vehicles, aircrafts, ships, and wind turbines alike all require thorough and continuous testing environments. Speedgoat hardware with Simulink® is a unified real-time testing platform that allows electric powertrains and propulsion units, charging infrastructure, onboard microgrids as well as power generators and battery management systems to be rapidly designed and developed. Furthermore, combine it with Simscape Electrical™  to accelerate the modeling and simulation of more-electric vehicles and aircrafts, and renewable energy systems.

Industry Segments and Use Cases

 

Power Electronics

Develop and test power converters and electric motor drives, multi-level inverters, and battery packs with active balancing using Simulink and Simscape Electrical™. Use power modules from Speedgoat and our partners to start testing converter topologies from a few hundred watts to hundreds of kilowatts.
