Abstract: In this paper, we present and discuss the design and development of robust multivariable feedback control in automotive applications with an emphasis on a nontrivial application of Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Energy Management. Most of the existing energy management approaches are not model-based dynamic systems and/or do not address the concepts of robust stability and performance. By considering a complete multi-input multi-output (MIMO) dynamics of the HEV model subject to uncertain parameters and dynamics, it is demonstrated that the two subsystems of the HEV dynamics with strong interactions (ie internal combustion engine and integrated DC motor/generator) are effectively controlled over a defined drive cycle. The employed robust feedback control design provides guaranteed stability- and performancerobustness for the HEV model plant under investigation and is shown to yield satisfactory performance subject to parametric uncertainties (arising due to combustion lag, rotational moment of inertia and damping), unmodeled complex-valued uncertainty (due to fueling delay) and unmeasurable exogenous plant disturbance (due to vehicle load). Simulation results verify that the robust multivariable control synthesis could significantly attack a wide range of challenging automotive applications with regards to improving their practical aspects including emission standards, fuel consumption and calibration cost and time.

He is currently the Head of the Department of Automotive Engineering and the Director of the Automotive Mechatronics Centre. 1 Introduction Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) have been received with great enthusiasm and attention in recent years [1]. In this approach. effect of timevarying parameters (due to drive cycle) is represented by the actions of the first player while the effect of operating strategy (energy management) is modeled by the actions of the second player. complexity of hybrid powertrain systems have been increased to meet end-user demands and to provide enhancements to fuel efficiency as well as meeting new emission standards [2] which accordingly require more complex (advanced) control system designs to achieve satisfactory performance for the hybrid powertrain. On the other hand. parametric uncertainties and/or unmeasurable exogenous disturbances. a function of weighted fuel economy and driveability variables integrated with a performance index. His areas of interest are Automotive Mechatronics. it cannot be utilised in a wide variety of applications whose dynamics. Hybrid Powertrain Control and Advanced Control Systems for automotive applications. 6] where the optimisation objective is. quadratic programming and dynamic programming [7. a number of heuristics techniques. In the first approach. optimisation of the operating points of the each . While the main objective of hybrid electric vehicles is to reduce Carbon Dioxide (CO2 ) emissions with an optimised fuel consumption. Among these energy management strategies. and the fact that due to there being a quasi-static method it cannot address the vehicle deriveability requirements. similar to the stochastic optimisation approach. There are a number of energy management methods in the literature of hybrid electric vehicles [4]. to obtain a desired closed-loop system response. while the second player aims to minimize this performance index. using Rule-based or Fuzzy logic. and ”sufficiently short” time-horizons [13]. in a heuristic manner. However. He has joined the automotive engineering department at Cranfield in September of 2009 where he established the Automotive Mechatronics Centre. have claimed to offer some improvements in the HEV energy efficiency [5. Two new HEV energy management approaches have been recently introduced in the literature. instead of one specific driving cycle a set of driving cycles are considered for calculating an optimal control law resulting in the stochastic optimisation approach [10]. Although this method has potential to perform well for systems with fewer states. to minimise emission constraints and fuel consumption. inputs. In other words. He has published over 50 conference and journal papers and has two patents and three invention disclosures.g. an entire control law is computed offline. A solution to this approach is calculated off-line and stored in a state-dependent lookup table.g.g. Assadian Group at Jaguar Land Rover.2 S. Any solution to this approach is calculated off-line and stored in a state-dependent lookup table. such heuristics based energy management approaches suffer from the fact that they guarantee neither an optimal result in real vehicle operational conditions nor a robust performance if system parameters deviate from their nominal operating points. Similar to aforementioned methods. Similar approach in this course employs Explicit Model Predictive Control [11. say e. cost function and/or constraints are timevarying due to e. other strategies have emerged that are based on optimisation techniques to search for sub-optimal solutions using programming concepts such as linear programming. any lookup-table-based optimisation approach may end up with severe difficulties in covering a real-world driving situation with a set of individual driving cycles. The lookup table provides a quasi-static control law which is directly applicable to the on-line vehicle implementation. Moreover. whilst the controller will be implemented online based on the lookup table. Fekri and F. In this approach. the required burdensome calculations integrated with these approaches have imposed a high demand on practical computational resources which prevent from being implemented on-line in a straightforward manner. since they assume that the future driving cycle is entirely known. Consequently. Nonetheless. A recent approach has endeavored to decouple the optimal solution from a driving cycle in a game-theoretic (GT) framework [14].

A weighting factor is typically included to prevent a drift in the battery from its nominal energy level and also to guarantee a charge sustaining solution. Two fundamental drawbacks of aforementioned strategies are firstly their consideration of driveability being an afterthought and secondly the driveability issue is deemed in an ad-hoc fashion as these approaches are not model-based dynamic. have dealt with multivariable hybrid systems as decoupled single-input single-output (SISO) loops and.g. Thus. however. maximize fuel economy and sustain a reasonably responsive car (i. there is a vital need of model-based dynamic controllers with an increased processing speed. to tackle a wide range of applications in the automotive control system designs. It should be self-evident that. for the real-time application of HEV energy management. some methods define an optimisation criterion to minimise the vehicle fuel consumption and reduce exhaust emissions [10]. This term includes the corresponding fuel use for the energy exchange with the battery in the optimisation criterion [16]. Section 6 will present some of our conclusions. a number of inherent hardware constraints and limitations integrated with the 3 vehicle electronic control unit (ECU). using its potential capability. and verifying hybrid dynamical models and also for designing hybrid model predictive controllers. such as processing speed and memory. In Section 4. Currently applicable techniques. This approach has been considered in the past. The main shortcoming of model predictive control methods is that they can only be used in applications with ”sufficiently slow” dynamics [13]. Simulation results will be demonstrated in Section 5. MPC is currently applied off-line to generate the required maps and then these maps are used on-line [10]. Hybrid modeling tools have been recently developed to analyse and optimise a number of classes of hybrid systems. or lack of proper estimation of the vehicle load torque (plant disturbance). among other objectives. For this reason the standard MPC algorithms have been retained away from modern production vehicles. Towards a practical model-based dynamic controller approach. have made on-line implementations of predictive control approaches almost impossible. 2 Hybrid Electric Vehicles Modern day automotive engineers must. Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) have been introduced which typically combine two different sources . By utilising this proposed design. and hence are not suitable for many practical applications including HEV energy management problem..Multivariable Controls for Energy Management of Hybrid Electric Vehicles component can still be beneficial. However. we will overview the literature of the hybrid electric vehicles. Therefore. We strongly believe that the results of this work could make automotive engineers motivated to continue the design and development of robust multivariable control design and. there are a number of model-based energy management methods such as Model Predictive Controls (MPC). simulation. the robust controller will be integrated into a HEV system as the ”torque manager”. we provide in detail the mathematical description of the simplified dynamical model of the hybrid diesel electric vehicle (parallel type) along with analysing the open-loop dynamics. e. have not addressed the MIMO ”directional properties” quantified by the singular value decomposition (SVD). This paper is organized as follows. Towards this end. one is capable to pose a quantified robustness analysis in the presence of uncertainties due to. We shall highlight some of the aspects of the multivariable robust control design by representing typical simulation results.. we shall overview some of the theoretical and practical aspects of the robust multivariable control for a practical application of hybrid electric vehicle energy management with significance of addressing dynamic vehicle driveability. and robust to uncertainties. In addition. “directionality” issues predominate and we must use singular value plots to understand the dynamic properties in the frequency domain. utilise quasi-static models which are not sufficient to address driveability requirements [14]. A recently developed package for the hybrid MPC design is referred to as Hybrid and Multi-Parametric Toolboxes [21] which is based on the traditional model predictive control optimisation alternatives using generic optimisers. HYbrid Systems Description Language (HYSDEL) [18]. e. transfer function matrices describe all relevant dynamic systems.g. Among these modeling tools developed to represent the hybrid systems. thus. and Piecewise Affine (PWA) models [19.e. In Section 3. generation and utilisation of maps defeat the original purpose of designing a dynamic compensator which maintains driveability. Hybrid Toolbox for Matlab [20] is developed for modeling. for the use of practical hybrid electric vehicle energy management application. in any MIMO case. In Section 2. we discuss briefly the characteristics of the robust multivariable control system design. Almost all of these hybrid tools. An alternative approach is to extend the objective function with a fuel equivalent term. but it is still remained an arduous task to select a weighting factor that is mathematically sound [15]. In fact. to name but a few. The proposed control design. In a number of applications. which makes up the main part of the energy management solution. Towards this end. 9]. we shall refer to Mixed Logical Dynamical (MLD) [17]. such as game-theoretic based optimisation. is derived based on the dynamic models of the plant and hence driveability requirements are taken into consideration as part of the controller design. After the design of the robust multivariable controller. to replace the existing ”non-dynamic” and/or ”non-robust” energy management design approaches. In this paper. maintain driveability) while still meeting increasingly stringent emission constraints mandated by the government. a change in the dynamics of the plant.

The vehicle energy management development is a challenging practical control problem for which a significant amount of research has been devoted in regard to the full HEVs and Electric Vehicles (EVs) in the last decade [26]. Also. The greater the parametric uncertainty. • It is essential to meet end-user demands for increasingly complex new vehicles towards improving vehicle performance and driveability [29]. 36. In summary. of power. It is significantly important to quantify the performance tradeoff of the reference tracking problem. The latter term. In fact. Also. e. Hence. while still continuing to reduce costs and meeting new emission standards. as well as the characteristics of unmeasurable exogenous plant disturbances and sensor noises. the purpose of this paper is to highlight importance for analysis and concrete results related to the performance tradeoffs that are always present in MIMO feedback designs with the guaranteed stabilityand performance-robustness. mainly for optimising fuel efficiency and reducing CO2 and greenhouse gases (GHG) [22]. engine downsizing and utilising the electric motor/motors to make up for the lost torque. Hence. the ICE can be switched off as well as during vehicle stop for avoiding engine idling. Assadian • There is a continuous increase in the gap between the theoretical control advancements and the practical control strategies being applied to the existing production vehicles. The concept of sharing the requested power between the internal combustion engine and electric motor for traction during vehicle operation is referred to as ”vehicle supervisory control” or ”vehicle energy management” [24]. There are other benefits offered by hybrid electric vehicles in general. For a more indepth discussion the reader is referred to e. 28] and other references therein. This gap is due to a number of missed opportunities in addressing fundamental functionalities. only a summary is provided here. hybrid propulsion systems are potentially capable of improving fuel efficiency for a number of reasons: they are able to recover some portion of vehicle kinetic energy during braking and use this energy for charging the battery and hence. that is. when required. the traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) with one (or more) electric motors. Compared to the vehicles with conventional ICE. the robust mixed-µ compensator design process detunes an optimal H∞ compensator.g. the impact of advanced control design for the application of the hybrid vehicle powertrain systems has become significantly important [38]. e. emissions. we must take into account both unmodeled dynamics and uncertain real parameters. Refs. tested and implemented in the production hybrid vehicles. driveability. since we deal with a MIMO design. It turns out that the internal combustion engine of the hybrid electric vehicle can be potentially designed with a smaller size and weight which results in a superior fuel efficiency and reduced emissions [23]. there are currently extensive academic and industrial research interests ongoing in the area of hybrid electric vehicles as these vehicles are expected to make considerable contributions to the environmentally conscious requirements in the vehicle production sector in the future – see [27. to hedge for the worst uncertain real parameters and the inevitable unmodeled dynamics. unification of control architecture and integration of the Automotive Mechatronics units on board vehicle. With regards to hybrid electric vehicles. the following key engineering design issues of multivariable feedback . and of the resulting robust feedback control system.and performancerobustness with respect to the explicit performance specifications posed by the control system designer [30]. using the so-called D − K iteration. must possess guarantees of both stability. 3 Multivariable feedback control design All linear time-invariant (LTI) models of real dynamic systems are subject to uncertainty. fuel economy. when real parameter uncertainty is present in the system. the smaller the guaranteed performance. The robust complex µ -synthesis. employed throughout this paper. Fekri and F. designed for the nominal generalised plant. there are tremendous mandates on Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to deliver fuel-efficient and less-polluting vehicles at lower costs. These are some representative advantages of the hybrid vehicles compared to those of conventional vehicles. here are the facts and regulations which must be taken into consideration by automotive engineers: • Due to the ever increasing stringent regulations on fuel consumption and emissions. 37]. utilise the electric motor at a later point in time. • The robust MIMO control system design seem promising advanced tools to bridge this gap should they could be developed.g. in its present form and as presently is implemented in current numerical Matlab software package [31. The theoretical foundation for the mixed-µ analysis and synthesis is too copious for a comprehensive review in the framework of this paper. 32] has substantial disadvantages. ‘directional properties’ quantified by the singular value decomposition (SVD) are important. if the torque request (demanded by driver) is below a threshold torque. some more technical details with regards to this research field are provided in [38]. Moreover. To tackle such a challenging problem. In particular. The design of a multiinput multi-output (MIMO) dynamic compensator.g. which illustrate the strong interactions of the subsystems. 35. For each LTI model. is particularly referred to as a control allocation for delivering the required wheel torque to maximize the average fuel economy and sustain the battery state of charge (SoC) within a desired charging range [25].

The mixed-µ synthesis problem 5 extends the above procedure to the mixed real/complex uncertainties case. in our studies. • In robust MIMO feedback designs with fixed uncertainty for the real parameters. which is (optimally) robust to structured mixed uncertainty is very difficult. A representative configuration of an advanced 4 × 4 parallel hybrid electric vehicle configuration is shown in Figure 1. by exploiting some new analysis tools recently developed for the mixed-µ upper bound [35]. As our intention in this study is to investigate the ”full-hybrid” mode. these can be analyzed and evaluated by the SVD methodology. for example. we design a two-input two-output (TITO) control system for the application of energy management of an uncertain hybrid electric vehicle and demonstrate the very important tradeoffs between performance and uncertainty.e. This is due to the fact that our empirical diesel engine model is derived with engine speed range of ω = [1200. with recent advances on robust multivariable control design using robust µ synthesis.

The ICE indicated torque Tind is assumed to be mapped from the delayed fueling input proportionally. These results are captured by measuring the step response of the engine to a step change in the engine brake torque. . this model shall be used for the simulation of the overall vehicle motion (at longitudinal direction). our developments towards a simplified hybrid model are based on a high fidelity simulation model of the overall diesel hybrid electric vehicle.
