Ageing and efficiency Simulation & TEsting under Real world conditions for Innovative electric vehicle Components and Systems

Objective

Following the Green Car Initiative (GCI) included in the European Economic Recovery Plan there is a high demand for electrification of transport in Europe.
There are currently several concepts for FEV (fully electric vehicle) and HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) that support this “electro mobility” demand. The development and improvement of the different concepts require a huge effort in analysis, design, implementation and testing and not to forget feeding back experience, results and knowledge to new generations of Electric Vehicles.
Advanced modelling tools and testing procedures going from one-dimension to three dimensional approaches have a fundamental role to play in optimizing during the earliest project phases for the energy dimensioning of FEV & HEV as well as their “energy management strategies” while reducing project’s development lead-time as well as to build-up requirements for subsystems and their related control units. Research in this project will focus on the development and validation of numerical simulation tools, virtual prototyping and advanced physical testing procedures and on the standardization of such tools in order to:
• Investigate solutions for improving the efficiency and performance of future generation EV and their constituent components and sub-systems that may be critical from the energy efficiency point of view. The development of these sub-systems is however excluded.
• Assess the effect of different sub-systems solutions in terms of energy efficiency and related increase of autonomy on different specific real life driving cycles that will take into account traffic constraints, road slope evolution, etc.
• Verify technological feasibility and economic viability of the advanced solutions proposed.

ASTERICS project aim is to develop advanced modelling and testing tools and methods that will be the base for future developments of FEV & HEV trough all Europe, contributing to the competitiveness in this sector, in all its aspects.
