APAS – Automated Powerunit Architecture Selection and Control Strategy Generation

This IDE funded project aims to develop capability to model and simulate powerunit systems and controllers for a variety of architectures. These models are then used to assess attribute performance, which in turn then optimises the vehicle architecture to meet a set of targets and requirements.

total project spend

Two PhD students from the University of Bath will work in close connection with McLaren Automotive and Ricardo to:

 

  • Develop software that allows multiple attributes to be assessed for a single vehicle model, and the architecture to be modified based on these results.

​​

  • Develop enabling technologies and advanced control and optimisation approaches to allow for the optimum definition of a vehicle powertrain architecture.
