Exploration of the Contribution of the Start/Stop Transients in HEV Operation and Emissions 2000-01-3086

The effects of the start/stop (S/S) transients on the Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) operation and emissions are explored in this study. The frequency with which the engine starts and stops during an urban driving cycle is estimated by using the NREL's Advanced Vehicle Simulator software (ADVISOR). Furthermore, several tests were conducted on single-cylinder and multi-cylinder direct injection diesel engines in order to measure the cycle-resolved mole fractions of the hydrocarbons and nitric oxide exhaust emissions under frequent start/stop mode of operation. The frictional losses in engine in its entirety as well as in its components are also determined. In addition, the dynamic behavior of different high pressure fuel injection systems are investigated under the start and stop mode of operation.
