The Development of Powertrain Control Unit (PCU) for Parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) 2004-01-0575
In this paper the hardware of PCU based on digital signal processor (DSP) is developed and the software of PCU control with a nested structure is created. The control algorithm is programmed in C language, and the signal collection and communication are realized by assembly language with a high system performance. The electromagnetic interference in PHEV is serious, so the hardware and software anti-interference treatments for the PCU are studied in this paper. Besides, the hardware in the loop simulation system (HILSS) is set up and used as a main test instrument to check the PCU's performance. Also the simulation results of PCU control are shown in this paper.
