Physical System Model of a Hydraulic Energy Storage Device for Hybrid Powertrain Applications 2005-01-0810

The chemical storage battery is currently the primary choice of automotive powertrain designers for hybrid-electric vehicles. This design suffers from complexity, manufacturing, cost, durability, poor performance predictability and other problems. Additionally, the trend in hybrid powertrain design is to move from high energy density to high power density. A proposed alternative to chemical batteries for some hybrid vehicle applications is an electro-mechanical battery (EMB) that combines an electric machine with hydro-pneumatics to provide energy capture, storage, and propulsion assistance. An initial multi-domain physical system model of an EMB-based hybrid powertrain has been developed in the Simulink environment to show the behavior of the EMB design in a midsize hybrid passenger vehicle application.
