dSPACE (Wixom, MI) has announced the new Power RealTime Library. It is now faster to simulate circuit models that were developed in SimPowerSystems (MathWorks Simulink). Two typical application areas are wind energy generators and electric drives in vehicles and aircraft. Electric drives are being integrated into a growing number of basic, complex, and safety-relevant vehicle functions in automotive applications such as mild or full hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles, electric brake systems, drivetrain actuators, electric power steering (EPS), auxiliary units (oil and water pumps), etc. Features include:
- Mean value models of power electronics bridge circuits.
- Pre-calculation of model states and model separation across several computational nodes.
- Library blocks & functions for integration of models in asynchronous rasters.
