### Activate e-Mobility Series

This series discusses various aspects of system modeling for e-Mobility studies from overall performance simulations including fuel economy, to model refinements for electric engines and/or vehicle dynamics.

**Fuel economy simulations**

Activate model of a series-parallel hybrid electric vehicle powertrain to evaluate fuel economy and system performance.

**Increasing fidelity of vehicle dynamics models**

Activate models of a series-parallel hybrid electric vehicle powertrain coupled with CarSim via the Functional Mock-up Interface.

**Increasing fidelity of electric engine models**

Comparison of 3 different engine models for an HEV vehicle: Park equations, full 3D Flux model, table method; later one generated by Flux2D.

**PMSM simple speed control**

Activate model of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) with vector control for speed or torque.
