Project in THM, DAAD scholarship
6th-year scientific direction master-student of the department AEMS-ED Y. Nikonenko conducted research at the University of Applied Sciences of Mittelhessen (THM), by the DAAD Leonard-Euler Scholarship Collaboration Program in April-May 2019.
The research program included the comparison of the energy characteristics of an electric vehicle system with two different energy storages.
A standard battery system and a hybrid energy storage system developed by a student were investigated.
Real electric vehicle load was emulated by means of designer environment of deutch company IPG – CarMaker.
This is a very powerful program package that allows full-scale adjustment of all elements of the vehicle’s mechanical parts, driver behavior settings, route design (taking into account terrain topology) etc.
Another benefit is the data integration into MatLab, which simplifies the configuration of the entire system: the modeling of the vehicle is carried out in CarMaker, and simulation of energy storages conducted in MatLab Simulink.
negotiations are held with IPG for obtaining license for this program for further research in our department.
