Power Management of Hybrid Electric Vehicle
This paper has presented an overview of the modelling and simulation of hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) Different modelling methods are presented with powertrain component and system modelling examples. This simulation tool is meant as a help in the design and evaluation of the hybrid electric vehicle. Components in the driveline can be varied and the effect on the hybrid electric vehicle fuel efficiency can be investigated. The demonstration shows different operating modes of the HEV over one complete cycle: accelerating, cruising, recharging the battery while accelerating and regenerative braking.
