MapleSim is a physical modeling and simulation tool that will reduce model development time from months to days. By combining modern physical modeling techniques with the world’s most advanced symbolic computation, MapleSim offers an environment in which users can develop high-fidelity system-level models significantly faster than with other tools. MapleSim, coupled with Maple, provides a powerful, open analysis environment, giving users all the tools and flexibility to refine and optimize designs. MapleSim’s unique technology produces extremely fast auto-generated model code, and the code is completely royalty-free. Users can achieve real-time the first time, without sacrificing fidelity in their system-level models.
Development of Real-Time Battery Models for HIL testing of Battery Management Systems (BMS)
The explosion in the use of electronic devices, electrified vehicles and decentralized power utilities (e.g. smart grids) has driven demand for rechargeable batteries, creating a thriving and growing market. Current projections indicate that the global market for rechargeable batteries will be approximately $60 billion in 2015, growing at around 9% per year. This has led many of the major electronics companies to enter the market, with offerings targeting a range of applications: from small and light-weight for hand-held devices to batteries the size of shipping containers for utilities. It has also led to a significant increase in research investment into battery technologies to address many of the technical challenges facing this industry, ranging from increasing specific energy (the amount of charge a cell can hold per kg weight) to thermal stability, battery life extension, and final disposal of spent materials at the end of a battery's life.In this paper, we will focus on one area of development in the context of a project recently carried out by Maplesoft and its partner, ControlWorks Inc, of South Korea. Specifically, we will cover the development of a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing system for the Battery Management Systems (BMS) used in one of our client's larger electrical energy storage products, targeting the Smart Grid and UPS markets.
Symbolic Techniques for Model Code Optimization: FMI Applications
Due to the way products are developed today, engineers increasingly have to take components from different suppliers and integrate them into their final product. The ability to take work developed within many different tools and accurately model the real-time behavior of the integrated system is of paramount importance. Having an open standard that supports model exchange and co-simulation has many benefits for engineers. To this end, FMI is an increasingly important standard for engineering system design, testing, and integration.To perform meaningful testing of integrated systems, engineers need high-fidelity models that not only accurately represent the system being tested, but are also capable of running in real time. Maplesoft’s symbolic technology is a proven physical modeling technique that significantly improves model fidelity without sacrificing performance. By applying the FMI standard to export that model, and then using a tool such as the dSPACE SCALEXIO platform for integration and HIL testing, engineers now have a very viable option for rapid plant model development.
