dSPACE has announced the introduction of SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) software for testing electric motors.

  • Combines flexible architecture with freely programmable FPGA board DS2655
  • Includes scalable electronic load so users can test electric motor control systems in a more realistic environment by emulating the real motor and generator currents  
  • DS2655 FPGA Base Module is user-programmable to define high-fidelity, custom models for simulating complex, highly dynamic systems
  • FPGA is frequently used for simulating electric motors requiring very fast, computationally intensive simulation in applications such as hybrid vehicles
  • Modules can be mounted on the DS2655 base board to provide the necessary number of I/O channels
  • FPGA device can be configured graphically with standard dSPACE tools so users can react flexibly to new requirements, such as new I/O interfaces or faster simulation
  • Simulation models for HIL tests of electric motors and associated power electronics and batteries also available
  • Includes scalable dSPACE electronic load module to emulate motor and generator currents of up to 100 A at voltages of up to 60V
  • Load allows auxiliary to be emulated in vehicle electrical systems of up to 48V
  • Electronic loads can be used in parallel to provide higher current capability
  • Electronic Load Module features energy recovery capabilities, which considerably increase overall system efficiency and provides energy saving during testing
  • Lower energy consumption also means less heat is generated, and therefore, less active cooling is necessary
  • Also offers reduced space requirements and noise levels
  • Electronic Load Module can be integrated within the SCALEXIO system or installed externally
  • ECU under test can be connected directly to the Electronic Load Module, resulting in short power signal connection and reduced possible signal interference
