Video: Engine-in-the-Loop – Maneuver-Based Test Drives on the Test Bench
Simulated test drives on a test bench make it possible to predict a vehicle’s exhaust behavior during development. The test drives are performed in a closed loop on the real-time simulator dSPACE SCALEXIO in combination with the test bench.
With a mechatronic 3-D motion platform and a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator, control devices with integrated motion sensors can be tested in a closed loop. This makes it possible to perform tests efficiently and reproducibly in the lab in early development phases.
Simulation-based analysis of emission values with virtual and real engine test benches New emission test procedures require an exhaust emission evaluation for vehicles under real driving conditions. Therefore, real driving emissions (RDE) tests complement conventional tests that are performed under laboratory conditions on chassis dynamometers. With the dSPACE tool chain, RDE tests can be moved to various earlier development phases.
