This model is an approximate representation of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV including battery, E-Drive, HVAC-System and controls, cabin model and driving simulation. It is intended as a showcase on how to model certain parts of an electric vehicle and as a base for user models.
The battery is an air cooled battery, which, during fast charging, is cooled with cold air from the HVAC box. HVAC controls are modeled by a state machine in combination with several P controllers. Driving simulation is a simple longitudinal simulation intended for transient prediction of motor operating points. The simulation model is capable of predicting cabin temperatures and the related vehicle energy consumption and range for different ambient conditions (summer, winter…) and any user-defined drive cycle.
