MATLAB and Simulink Release 2022b Delivers New Simscape Battery and Updates that Simplify and Automate Model-Based Design


 MathWorks unveiled Release 2022b (R2022b) of the MATLAB® and Simulink® product families. R2022b introduces two new products and several enhanced features that simplify and automate Model-Based Design for engineers and researchers tasked with delivering product innovations and breakthroughs for their organizations.

The global battery management systems market is expected to reach $13.4 billion by 2026. Bloomberg New Energy Finance indicates the growth can be attributed largely to electric vehicle (EV) market growth. The organization’s latest report shows that 58% of global passenger vehicle sales will come from EVs by 2040. Simscape Battery™, one of the top innovations introduced in the R2022b release, provides design tools and parameterized models for businesses designing these types of battery systems.

Engineers and researchers use Simscape Battery to create digital twins, run virtual tests of battery pack architectures, design battery management systems, and evaluate battery system behavior across normal and fault conditions. The tool also automates the creation of simulation models that match desired pack topology and includes cooling plate connections so electrical and thermal responses can be evaluated.

Graham Dudgeon, Principal Product Manager, Electrical Systems Modeling, MathWorks, said, “We’re excited to launch Simscape Battery as innovation in battery management systems is at an all-time high,”  “The new product includes many design tools intended to simplify and automate Model-Based Design, including the Battery Pack Model Builder that lets engineers interactively create and evaluate different battery pack architectures.”

R2022b also features the new Medical Imaging Toolbox. The toolbox provides tools for medical imaging applications to design, test, and deploy diagnostic and radiomics algorithms that use deep learning networks. Medical researchers, scientists, engineers, and device designers can use Medical Imaging Toolbox for multi-volume 3D visualization, multimodal registration, segmentation, and automated ground truth labeling for training deep learning networks on medical images.

R2022b introduces updates to popular MATLAB and Simulink tools, including: 

  • AUTOSAR Blockset: Develop services-oriented applications using client-server ARA methods and deploy them on embedded Linux platforms. The tool lets users define data types and interfaces in an architecture model.
  • Fuzzy Logic Toolbox: Design, analyze, and simulate fuzzy inference systems (FIS) interactively using the updated Fuzzy Logic Designer app. In addition, the enhanced toolbox allows engineers and researchers to design type-2 FIS using command-line functions or the Fuzzy Logic Designer app.
  • HDL Coder: Generate optimized SystemC code from MATLAB for High-Level Synthesis (HLS) and use the frame-to-sample conversion for model and code optimization.
  • Model Predictive Control Toolbox: Use neural networks as prediction models for nonlinear model predictive controllers. In addition, the toolbox now lets users implement model predictive controllers that meet ISO 26262 and MISRA C standards. 
  • System Identification Toolbox: Create deep learning-based nonlinear state space models using neural ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Machine learning and deep learning techniques can also represent nonlinear dynamics in nonlinear ARX and Hammerstein-Wiener models.
