Abstract

© 2018 IEEE Project aims to develop capability for OEMs and suppliers to 'virtually-connect' multiple prototype powertrain components (engine, motor-drive etc.) and engage in real-time system simulation, thereby reducing cost by eliminating co-location dependency. Technical challenge faced is to duplicate test-hardware state & performance at remote location(s) real-time via an indeterminate internet connection characteristic of latency and jitter. MFA-based remote model is a potential solution but applied research till date has been for fixed-frequency operation. This paper explores variable frequency operation of MFA and outlines the implementation of generic electric powertrain intended for remote control/operation, indicating key performance improvements over time-domain switching models.
