PAMVEC is a spreadsheet-based parametric vehicle modelling and design tool used for the analysis of advanced vehicle technologies such as hybrid-electric, battery and fuel cell-powertrains. For these technologies, PAMVEC predicts vehicle performance, powertrain component sizes, total vehicle mass and fuel/energy consumption. Its features include:
References contains hyperlinks to PAMVEC-related references and contact details for feedback or comment.
Inputs contains all parameters that define the vehicle platform attributes, vehicle performance requirements, and driving pattern parameters.
Driving Cycles contains a list of parameters for many useful driving cycles that may be used within the PAMVEC model.
Powertrain Components contains all parameters that define the specific power/energy and efficiency of powertrain components as well as
model: conventional internal combustion engine vehicle (ICV), parallel hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), series hybrid electric vehicle (SHEV), fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV), fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle (FCHEV) and battery electric vehicle (BEV). These templates can be copied into new worksheets to create additional variants of each powertrain architecture.
Input cells are coloured YELLOW and are intended to be modified by the user. These cells may be found in the Inputs, Driving Cycles and
Powertrain Components worksheets.
Intermediate input cells are coloured BLUE and may be modified by the user. These cells import input parameters into the six template
Output cells are coloured PINK and preferably should not be modified. These cells can be found throughout the PAMVEC model.
PAMVEC users are encouraged to customize the model for their own purposes. However, the public release version of PAMVEC has
worksheets protections in place to prevent accidental modification/deletion of cells. The protections still allow the user to vary parameters in
theInputs and Powertrain Components worksheets and also allow the user to copy any one of the six powertrain templates into a new
worksheet. Further modifications to the PAMVEC model will require the user to go toTools -> Protection -> Unprotect Sheet and use the
passwordpamvec. Each worksheet must be unprotected in turn. Before unprotecting any of the worksheets, please remember to save a
copy of the original model.
