Study on the characteristics of driving cycles 2000-05-0336
The driving cycles reflect the actual operational condition of vehicles. Based on these cycles, the energy performance of an actual Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle and that of a hypothetical Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) are predicted. The reasons for different results are analyzed using the equal efficiency loops of engine and motor. These lay a foundation for selecting and determining the reasonable driving cycle to select, design and match the vehicles.
