Drive Cycle Performance of a Double Planetary Gear Hybrid Electric Vehicle Transmission System 2008-28-0037
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) is well accepted short-term and medium-term response to the problems of rising crude prices and technical challenges of the new hydrogen and battery technologies. This paper describes the performance of a novel HEV transmission system that overcomes the deficiencies of existing solutions and gives a better, real-time implementable, fault-tolerant, simple yet future-worthy and real-time solution. The performance of the system is evaluated using the ADVISOR software. Sanity checks are performed to see cycle to cycle performance and operating points of the ICE engine and the motor / generator.
