A solution to perform calibration on the desktop instead of on the rig or on the road, using the power of MORPHEE technology.
New regulations, with WLTC/WHTC cycles and the RDE legislation, combined with the complexity of new powertrains, either conventional or hybrid, make previous calibration processes (methodologies, tools, testing and validation means) obsolete or at least no longer efficient enough.
vCAP is the cornerstone of the FEV calibration approach. This is a simulation-based (MiL, SiL, HiL) engine to vehicle platform; in other words, a virtual test bed which enables you to calibrate an ECU in accordance with the new WLTC, WHTC cycles and the new RDE legislation, thereby saving up to 40% of the physical tests - both steady state and transient - and meeting Euro6d and China 6 requirements, among others. This solution uses the MORPHEE software technology which combines simulation, calibration and automation functionalities. It can host cutting-edge calibration and simulation methodologies from FEV.
You want to handle your new calibration projects and are thinking about simulation. With vCAP, you will decrease the amount of your physical tests and will shorten development time. With a robust modeling process and with FEV calibration and simulation methodologies inside: thanks to this unique know-how, you benefit from state of the art models for the main engine outputs – raw emissions, CO2, torque).
Thanks to the unique performance of MORPHEE, the accuracy of the models remains the same from the MiL stage to their handling at the vCAP, and is consequently fully compliant with the calibration usage purposes.
vCAP is a fully integrated solution: it includes not only MORPHEE but also advanced hardware generating engine signals and the connection to the ECU and its harness.
Last but not least, it offers a seamless process from design to testing, as MORPHEE and its interfaces are used all along the process, making it simple for simulation and calibration engineers as well as for testing operators.
As fast as possible: MORPHEE technology offers a very powerful time management system able to perform a high number of calculations and tasks in deterministic time.
Reliable modeling: vCAP couples 0D/1D modeling approaches and statistical modeling techniques with a unique FEV methodology. This combination of physical and statistical models is the key element of vCAP, guaranteeing the representativeness of the results and compliance for calibration applications.
So open, so advanced: with this platform, benefit from the calibration methodologies developed by FEV, the world leader in calibration, or use your own existing models and tools.
Born for calibration: as vCAP is compatible with the major calibration tools on the market, keep your own tools and methodologies.
Model set-up & integration into a single simulation platform.
Coupling the models to the ECU...
...and to the harness and actuators
Really good results for all the engine out emissions including CO2, on a RDE application.
Really good correlations between simulation results and experimental measurements.
Good accuracy on air mass flow and boost pressure (controlled by EGR and VGT positions) – very good transient behavior.
Good accuracy for NOx emissions – peaks predicted as well as final cumulated value: 2% error at the end of the WHTC.
