Rose-Hulman is competing in EcoCAR2, a three year competition where teams design, build, and test a hybridvehicle architecture. Teams are required to generate vehicle models that will be used throughout the life of the competition. The model is used to choose a hybrid architecture, design a robust control scheme, implement fault mitigation strategies, and optimize vehicle performance. Modelling techniques include Model-in-the- Loop, Software-in-the-Loop, and Hardware-in-the-Loop. This paper will discuss the techniques developed to build a model that can be actively used for the life of the three year competition and maintained across the MIL, SIL, and HIL modelling levels.
