Physical Models for XiL Applications

Did you know that PWT has a longstanding experience in the development of physics-based plant models for powertrain development?

These models have significant advantages over map-based ones for the validation of controllers on Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) systems:

  • They are already available from simulation departments and can be used from the concept phase already
  • They provide access to a countless number of variables, even those not commonly measurable
  • Design variants can be assessed easily, quickly and virtually at no cost
  • Being grounded on physics, they can extrapolate natively and thus reduce the need for training data
  • Their high grade of predictivity means that they can operate in off-nominal conditions out of the box

With 10+ years of experience in RT physical model development for control and software-based function development we can support you for validation and verification projects.
