This paper presents an implementation of a versatile full-scale hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) verification environment for testing of heavy-duty hybrid electric vehicles and mobile work machines. The test facility includes a full-scale hybrid system that can be loaded with either an electric motor dynamometer or a programmable chassis dynamometer. Model-based software development tools and rapid control prototyping hardware are used to implement control algorithms and other vehicle controller software as well as to control other test equipment.
