The vehicle steering characteristics and active functions can be virtually developed with a high-fidelity electric power assisted steering (EPAS) model and a multibody chassis model. The simulation of the EPAS model requires small integration step due to high stiffness and interfacing with the controller. The multibody chassis model is computationally heavy for each integration step due to calculation of large matrices. A mono-simulation based on a single solver is not efficient for this case. Instead a co-simulation (solver coupling) approach has been used to overcome the drawbacks.

In this paper the EPAS system and chassis system are modeled in Dymola and further exported as separate functional mockup units (FMUs) and integrated with the control algorithms in Matlab. A co-simulation based on the explicit parallel calculation scheme (Jacobi scheme) has been used. A huge simulation speed-up has shown the potential and effectiveness of the approach. To understand its accuracy and tolerance, analysis on the numerical error and dynamics of the coupled-system are given.
