The paper introduces a new concept of modeling the overall control unit of hybrid electric vehicles in Modelica. The work focuses on a structure which can simulate substantially different vehicle concepts without changing the structure of the control unit. Based on his universal implementation different scenarios can be simulated rapidly and consequently cheaply; including fundamentally different drive trains ranging from conventional to purely electrical including hybrid versions.
