This simulator is an educational system designed in vertical frame, bench-top, so the students have the capability to watch the theoretical and practical study of the automotive systems. It includes colour mimic diagram that clearly shows the structure of the system and allows the location of components on it. The simulator consists of a panel operating by PC with mimic diagram for the clear positioning of the components. The various zones of the mimic diagram are presented with different colours and shades to emphasize the peculiar characteristics of the system. The mimic diagram is fitted with light indicators so as to enable the observation of the control.
The display of the information available at the PC monitor allows the continuous monitoring of the educational system. The operational conditions are entered by the students. The insertion of faults is carried out by the PC.
The subsystems that form the hybrid solution and that are analyzed by means of the simulator and shown on the synoptical panel are the following: Gasoline Unit, including:
Electric Unit, composed of Hybrid System
The simulator is provided complete with Training Software and Control Software. The Training Software guides the student through the following phases: learning, simulation and experiments performance, tests and troubleshooting.
