Webinar on Electrical System Design Exploration for Electric Vehicles


In this webinar, MathWorks will demonstrate a workflow that provides system-level electrical loading information to inform an electrical system design task. The electrical system in this case will be a parallel-connected fuel-cell stack and battery energy storage system. The aim of the electrical design is to develop the most efficient power supply to meet the needs of a given drive cycle. The electrical design is then evaluated in a full-system level model.


  • Obtain motor loading information from a full vehicle simulation.

  • Expand model fidelity as appropriate in the electrical design task to support efficient design space exploration.

  • Incorporate optimization algorithms to provide efficient response between different generation units.

  • Evaluate the electrical system design in a full vehicle simulation.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
