Optimal energy management of hybrid electric vehicles has previously been shown to increase fuel economy (FE) by approximately 20% thus reducing dependence on foreign oil, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and reducing Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Mono Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions. This increase in FE is a critical technology to be implemented in the real world because internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicles are the leading contributor in each of these areas. This review identifies three research gaps preventing optimal energy management of hybrid electric vehicles from being implemented in the real world: sensor and signal technology, optimal calculation time, and prediction scope and error impacts. Sensor and signal technology is required for the vehicle to understand and respond to its environment; information such chosen route, speed limit, stop light locations, traffic, and weather needs to be communicated to the vehicle.

Abstract The value of “ultracapacitors” (also referred to as “supercapacitors” or “electric double layer capacitors” in some literature) as an augmentation device when placed in parallel with “electrochemical” energy storage (i.e. battery) is presented in this paper. Since ultracapacitors possess unique attributes due to their higher value of energy storage density (or Joules/WattHrs per mass) compared to conventional capacitors while maintaining the peak power providing capability (to some degree) typical of conventional capacitors they may provide a near term solution in applications demanding longer battery operating life when placed in parallel. Such demands may be pronounced by the onset of More-Electric-Aircraft peak loads and “cold-crank” Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) electric-starting in demanding cold temperature environments.
