Silicon Mobility introduces software library for optimizing battery range and charging speed

France-based Silicon Mobility, a provider of semiconductor control solutions, has introduced a software library and an application optimized for its OLEA chips.

OLEA is Silicon Mobility’s family of products for automotive applications, and includes a hardware-flexible interface for real-time data processing and deterministic control of actuators and sensors and SILant, as well as a functional safety acceleration unit for detecting and correcting system faults.

OLEA LIB is a software library optimized for OLEA dedicated to the control of hybrids and EVs. It includes functions for inverter, DC/DC converter and AC/DC charger systems control.

The library includes configurable and customizable algorithms including Clarke and Park current transform, Decoupling and Flux Weakening, Inverse Park/Clarke voltage, Space Vector Modulation PWM, Tracking loop position estimator (e.g. Magnetic Resistive, Resolver) and Sensorless position estimation.

OLEA LIB comes with building blocks to be used as reference models and target models for MATLAB Simulink. OLEA LIB models are designed to enable user tuning and calibration under simulations and HiL in accordance with powertrain characteristics.

OLEA LIB Inverter Control is now available for evaluation by selected customers. OLEA APP for Mild/Full Hybrid and EV electric motor control will be available in Q3 2017.
