The dSPACE ASM Electric Components simulation package is now supported by JMAG, a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tool for electromechanical design developed by the JSOL. ASM Electric Components are Automotive Simulation Models (ASM) for the real-time simulation of vehicle electrical systems or hybrid drivetrains. With JMAG, users can now define the key characteristics of electric motors and export them to parameterise the generic ASM electric motor models. After virtual electric motors are defined, they can be executed on a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator in real time. The tool coupling provides users with graphical designs of complex systems and real-time performance.
