RegenSIM

Overview

LINK, through the advent of RegenSim, has developed the capability to simulate regenerative braking conditions on inertia brake dynamometers. This is the most advanced regenerative braking testing software available on the market today.

This system is able to control to a constant deceleration, simulating the regenerative operation from the vehicle. RegenSim enables the ProLINK control system to act as a vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU), distributing the amount of work to be done between the friction brake and the regenerative source.

Applications

  • Regenerative braking

Key Benefits

  • Can be added to any test sequence by entering basic hybrid vehicle parameters.
  • The ProLINK control system is flexible and can take in different vehicle inputs to simulate regenerative braking profiles.
  • The dynamometer provides accurate control even in durations in which there is no work performed by the friction brake.
