Light-Weight Shell Eco-marathon Car Simulation

Learn how to do Multi-Disciplinary System Simulation of a Shell Eco-marathon or similar Car
  • Learn the basics of using Altair Activate and its GUI
  • Learn about different modeling approaches
  • With a given Shell Eco-marathon model and Drive cycle
    • Calculate the speed of a ‘Light Weight Car’ using the vehicle model provided, and compare Actual Speed to the Target Speed
    • Understand how the Proportional-Integral (PI) controller has been designed to maintain a minimum difference between these 2 speeds as the vehicle is driven
    • Calculate the Energy consumed by this vehicle over time
    • Explore what happens if you change any of the parameters defining the vehicle, its environment, and/or the controller
  • Learn how to create your own model in Activate

Overview

Watch a quick video on how this ready to run model can be used to Calculate the speed, compare Actual Speed to the Target Speed and Calculate the Energy consumed by a sample Shell Eco-marathon vehicle over time and Explore what happens if you change any of the parameters defining the vehicle, its environment, and/or the controller
