The Energy Flow Management and Battery Energy Capacity Determination for the Drive Train of Electrically Peaking Hybrid Vehicle Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this paper, the configuration of a parallel hybrid vehicle, called electrically peaking hybrid (ELPH) vehicle is introduced. Several operation modes of the engine and electric motor and different control strategies are analyzed. The results show that, with proper selection of the drivetrain parameters, the vehicle can satisfy the urban and highway driving with a small internal combustion engine, a small battery pack and a single gear transmission. Moreover, the vehicle does not need to charge the battery pack from the electricity network for keeping its battery SOC at a reasonable level. Copyright 1997 Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.
