Powertrain technologies: System-driven development and tests


The transportation industry is undergoing a fundamental shift: The trend in the development of powertrain systems is moving away from fossil fuels and toward promising alternatives, such as green energy, hydrogen and e-fuels. As a crucial technology for the future, complex powertrain technologies and their effects have to be considered from a holistic and cross-domain perspective. Battery electric vehicles have been established on the market; at the same time, vehicles that run with e-fuel powered internal combustion engines, hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles are still viable options. Therefore, the challenge is to provide fitting solutions for a variety of powertrain concepts matched to the appropriate level of electrification.


System integration, virtual validation, and agile, software-driven development processes all play an important role in finding the right solutions. Using IPG Automotive’s end-to-end solutions, powertrain systems can be calibrated, tested and validated within the context of the full vehicle – and this can be done early on with synthetic or real-life test scenarios. Testing no longer needs to take place on the road; it can be done in a comfortable office or lab environment. The advantage of this approach is that fewer real vehicle prototypes are needed, which saves time and costs while maintaining the same high-quality standards.
