Master thesis: Simulation of a truck on a powertrain testbed
AVL List GmbH
vor 1 Tg.

With 11,500 employees worldwide, AVL is the world's largest independent for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems (hybrid, combustion engine, transmission, electric drive, batteries, fuel cell and control technology) for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, construction, large engines and their integration into the vehicle.

We offer a master thesis :

Simulation of a truck on a powertrain testbed

With focus on hybrid components

On a powertrain testbed (PTTB) instead of tires, the powertrain is connected to e-motors (dynos). The overall system including electric / hybrid components is getting quite complex.

Therefore, in this thesis a simulation model should be developed to enable investigations on different control parameters and limitations of the testbed.


  • Get familiar with an existing simplified simulation model of a PTTB (Matlab / Simulink)
  • Adaption of the simplified conventional powertrain to a hybrid powertrain
  • Simulation runs on the defined maneuvers and investigation on different controller settings
  • Comparison of simulation results of a standard vehicle and the PTTB simulation model
  • Study

  • Mechatronics engineering
  • Control engineering
  • Vehicle engineering
  • Requirements

  • High interest in modeling and simulation of dynamic systems
  • Good knowledge of control engineering (PI-controller, etc.)
  • Knowledge of MATLAB Simulink
  • Basic knowledge of vehicle and powertrain modeling
  • Remuneration : The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR 2,600 before tax.

    According to the Austrian Employment of Foreign Nationals Act it is unfortunately not possible to assign graduate work to third-country citizens (Non-EU citizens) who study at a university abroad.
