No one can say with certainty how long conventional drives will continue to dominate the market. What is definitely certain, though, is that the age of electric drives has arrived. For the vehicles of the future, comprehensive ECU tests are more necessary than ever before, as the complexity and extent of the software increase at a breathtaking speed. The BMW Group is using a dSPACE Simulator to develop functions and test ECUs for a battery management system for lithium-ion energy storage. It simulates battery cells in real time, enabling developers to investigate whether the battery management system meets all requirements.
