Modelling and control of an aftermarket HEV model

Modelling and control of an aftermarket HEV model

Ratings: (0)|Views: 43|Likes:

The first part of this research work focuses on offering an insight in to some existing research literature in the field of HEVs (hybrid electric vehicles). HEV modelling approaches have been presented as well as some HEV control approaches. The HEV control approaches presented could be sub classified in to real time and offline optimization techniques, most of which are either causal rule based or non-causal algorithm based. Model predictive and intelligent controllers which make use of real time GPS traffic and driving information to decide the appropriate control decision (power split between energy devices) were also investigated and were found to offer a viable fuel saving sub-optimal HEV energy management control strategy.

The second part of this research work focuses on the mathematical modelling and control of an aftermarket market hybrid electric vehicle. The aim of the control strategy is to minimize fuel consumption. The mathematical modelling of the HEV subsystems is presented and then the performance of the model is validated against experimental data. An electric assist rule based control strategy is implemented on the vehicle and shown to offer a 12.58% fuel savings over the NEDC (New European Drive Cycle).

MODELLING AND CONTROL OF ANAFTERMARKET PARALLEL HYBRIDELECTRIC VEHICLE
 AUTHOR: WISDOM ENANG
 
RESEARCHBACKGROUNDINFORMATION
 
DEFINITION OF HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE
Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) combine the internal combustion engine of normal vehicles with battery and electric motor.
HEV ADVANTAGES
Greater operating efficiency because HEVs use regenerative braking, whichhelps to minimize energy loss and recover the energy used to slow down orstop a vehicle.
Greater fuel efficiency because hybrids consume significantly less fuel thanvehicles powered by ICE alone
Cleaner operation because HEVs can run on alternative fuels: electricity(which have lower emissions), thereby decreasing the dependency onfossil fuels.
