Automotive Hybrid System Optimization Using Dynamic Programming 2003-01-0847

An automotive powertrain system consists of several interactive and linked nonlinear systems. This research focuses on the coordination of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, transmission and emission aftertreatment systems. The goal is to design an optimal control strategy for driving performance, emissions (HC, CO, NOX), fuel economy and smoothness when switching engine mode and when shifting gears, under both discrete and continuous limitations. A multivariable control strategy is used to compromise among all powertrain subsystems to achieve optimal overall performance. A nonlinear discrete dynamic programming approach is proposed for hybrid system optimization. The complex multivariable automotive control problem is then simplified into an optimization problem. The feasibility of automotive hybrid control via the discrete dynamic programming approach is demonstrated by results from many numerical simulations under different operating conditions.
