access icon free Development of a computer platform for visualisation and simulation of vehicular DC distribution systems

Contrary to other in-car engineering systems where the use of simulation tools is highly extended prior to a prototyping stage, the simulation of vehicular electrical distribution systems (EDSs) is not still a common practice as manufacturers so far have mainly relied on laborious empirical procedures for technical validation. However, to provide flexibility in EDS design and procure even faster endorsement, the development of computation tools on this subject is compelling considering the intricacy of these networks. To face this challenge, this work provides guidelines and experiences to develop a customised platform for EDS visualisation and simulation within the automotive industry context. The use of agile techniques for software development, visual analytics, and tailored power flow methods is highlighted among other aspects. Realistic case studies are presented to discuss the attributes of the implemented computational tool. To also provide relevant perspectives on how future EDS visualisation and simulation platforms will be developed, the latest research is discussed in topics such as new electric/electronic architectures, electro-thermal analysis, electronic fuses, mild hybrid power trains, hardware in the loop, and high-voltage networks.
