Launch and Driveability Performance Enhancement for a Parallel Hybrid with a Torque Controlled IVT 2005-01-3831

A mild hybrid powertrain with crankshaft mounted integrated motor generator (IMG) and torque controlled infinitely variable transmission (IVT) has shown clear potential for fuel economy (FE) enhancement. It also makes significant driveability and performance improvements possible which are a condition for customer satisfaction and subsequent marketability.
The hybrid powertrain supervisory control strategy presented here uses the energy recovered during braking events for power assist, hence improving FE and driveability compromises. This is achieved by operating the engine at its best brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) point during steady state conditions without deteriorating the transient response as a result of the comparatively fast IMG torque response.
This paper demonstrates the launch manoeuvre and general driveability improvements achieved in simulation with validated models.
