Advanced Control of Engine RPM for a More Intuitive Driving Experience in Power Split Hybrid Electric Vehicles 2010-01-2194

The Auto Industry is responding to the environment and energy conservation concerns by ramping up production of hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). As the initial hurdles of making the powertrain operate are overcome, challenges such as making the powertrain feel more refined and intuitive remain. This paper investigates one of the key parameters for delivering that refinement: engine RPM behavior. Ideal RPM behavior is explored and included in the design of a control system. System implications are examined with regard to the effect of engine RPM scheduling on Battery usage and vehicle responsiveness.
