The Guidelines and the Vehicle Performance Simulation Model for FY 2019’s Subsidy for Building Simulation Platforms to Accelerate Development of Next-Generation Vehicles have been released
Environmental Partnership Council(commonly called EPC) has been entrusted with subsidy project (the business management) related to ” Subsidy for Building Simulation Platforms to Accelerate Development of Next-Generation Vehicles” by METI since FY2018.
We have released the following information regarding the Guidelines and Vehicle Performance Simulation Model for FY 2019’s Subsidy for Building Simulation Platforms to Accelerate Development of Next-Generation Vehicles.
1. Purpose of the subsidy
This project aims to build a stable and appropriate energy supply & demand system that fits both the domestic and international economy, society, and environment. In order to accomplish that, the EPC will subsidize a portion of expenses needed to build vehicle performance assessment models, so that private organizations can efficiently lead development of vehicles by simulating the entire vehicle and not building actual vehicles for assessments. The EPC will also engage in projects to promote wide-scale use of vehicle performance assessment models, with the aim of accelerating development of next-generation vehicles and reducing energy used by the transport sector.
2. Summary of main points
In FY 2016, aiming at inter-industry (e.g., between automobile manufacturers and automobile parts manufactures or between automobile parts manufactures), or industry-academia distribution of the models and the dissemination of the MBD process, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry released the guidelines to define interfaces between such models and also the vehicle performance simulation models*, representing the details of the guidelines and serving as a common base for distribution among stakeholders.
As shown in Figure 1, these models are designed to be used as a common base for model distribution between OEMs and suppliers at the functional design stage of the upstream in the development process, and also to help suppliers and academia understand the MBD process for vehicles.
In this project, based on the above method and by adopting strategies shown in Figure 2, we have made updates by adding the performance areas of thermal, dynamic performance, and vehicle vibration for the last fiscal year, and EV Thermal and electric power management for this fiscal year. In addition, as the subsidized associations have created the definition documents (subsystem definition documents) defining the following models and interface for each model in detail, we hereby release those documents.
The guidelines, definition documents, and a part of the models are released as a recommended case for model distribution on the following ProSTEP iViP webpage through the collaboration with ProSTEP iViP (Germany) and SystemX (France).
