Route Based Optimal Control Strategy for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

More restrictive emission legislations, rising fuel prices and the realisation that oil is a limited resource have lead to the emergence of the hybrid electric vehicles. To fully utilise the potential of the hybrid electric vehicles, energy management strategies are needed. The main objective of the strategy is to ensure that the limited electric energy is utilised in an efficient manner. This thesis develops and evaluates an optimisation based energy management strategy for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The optimisation methods used are based on a dynamic programming and ECMS approach. The strategy is validated against Vsim, Volvo Cars’ performance and fuel consumption analysis tool as well as against strategies where parts of the optimisation is replaced by logic. The results show that the developed strategy consumes less fuel both compared to the corresponding Vsim strategy and the logic strategies.
