Transform your HEV powertrain design from imagination to product.

PSIM’s HEV Design Suite offers a complete design solution for complex hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) powertrain systems – and it significantly shortens development time.

The HEV Design Suite takes your system specifications and designs all the controllers automatically, with minimum intervention and effort. In a very short time, you have a functional HEV powertrain system set up and ready to simulate.

HEV Powertrain System Design

Simplify the complexity and complications of HEV powertrain system design

A series/parallel HEV powertrain system consists of a PMSM generator and converter, PMSM traction motor and converter, bi-directional dc/dc converter, lithium-ion battery, internal combustion engine, and vehicle load with clutch. Furthermore, a generator controller and traction motor controller may include multiple control blocks, such as Maximum-Torque-Per-Ampere control, field weakening control, torque control, speed control, and voltage control.

Explore Multi-Mode Operations

The HEV Design Suite can handle multi-mode operations of a HEV powertrain system, such as charging mode, battery drive mode, engine and motor drive mode, engine drive with charging mode, engine and motor drive with charging mode, full power mode, and regeneration braking mode.

With the capability to quickly put together a HEV system with detailed circuit models, the HEV Design Suite offers significant benefits and advantages to engineers.

  • Evaluate system requirements and understand the interactions among major subsystems such as batteries, DC/DC converters, traction motor and controller, generator and controller, engine and vehicle load.
  • Derive detailed hardware and software specifications of subsystems, and gain a better insight of the operations of the subsystems.
  • Carry out hardware component selection and design, and develop control algorithms and DSP control software.
  • Integrate and test the system based on system and subsystem requirements.
