Modeling and Control of Hybrid Electric Motorcycle with Direct-Driven Wheel Motor 2004-01-1054
A Hybrid Electric Motorcycle (HEM) with a direct-driven wheel motor is proposed in this paper. The rear wheel is driven by an internal combustion engine and a powertrain system of a traditional motorcycle with minor modifications. The front wheel is driven by a direct-driven wheel motor. The proposed HEM is a parallel configuration. Both wheels can supply tractive forces simultaneously to drive the motorcycle when necessary. A rule-based structure is used to design the power split controller of the proposed HEM. Fuel economy of the proposed design will be evaluated by a dynamic simulation model in Matlab/Simulink using ECE-R40 driving cycle.
