Parametric Design of Parallel Hybrid Power-train for Transit Bus 2004-01-1053
In concept design and prototype development of parallel hybrid power train for transit bus one of the main concerns is to determine the appropriate parameters of power train components. Utilizing the developed off-line simulation model of parallel hybrid power train the study on the influence of components' parameters on acceleration performance and fuel economy of transit bus is completed. Based on these the guideline strategies of parametric design of parallel hybrid power train for transit bus are brought forward in this paper. Given the condition of propulsion requirement the parametric design for this transit bus are performed targeting minimizing fuel consumption. It is conclusion that the appropriate components' parameters determined by means of parametric design can make parallel hybrid transit bus achieve much better acceleration performance and much lower fuel equivalent consumption than that of baseline transit bus.
