Heterogeneous Model Integration and Virtual Experimentation using xMOD: Application to Hybrid Powertrain Design and Validation

Abstract : The design, development and validation of vehicle powertrains is performed in concurrent cycles, involving various teams, working on a wide range of fields, and relying on modeling and simulation. However, there are still limitations that reduce models exchange and exploitation. After reviewing the main limitations of current simulation tools and methodologies, this paper introduces a new software platform, code named xMOD, and ambitioning to improve models exchange and exploitation. The main idea of xMOD is to combine in the same platform, a heterogeneous model integration environment, as well as a virtual instrumentation and experimentation laboratory. xMOD allows model developers, on one hand, to make their models easily understandable and exploitable, thanks to its virtual instrumentation functionalities, and to protect any con dential know-how. On the other hand, xMOD makes it possible for engineers and scientists, regardless of their experience and pro ciency in a given modeling language or environment, to rapidly and easily integrate and exploit heterogeneous models. xMOD enables an increase of simulation speed due to its ability to exploit multi-core processors. Finally, the application of xMOD to the design and validation of a hybrid vehicle is presented, in order to illustrate its functionalities and to demonstrate its effectiveness.
