Analysis of Multiple Hybrid Electric Concept in Agricultural Tractor Through Simulation Technique 2019-26-0243
This paper is about to analysis of multiple hybrid electric
concept for different agricultural applications for getting better
vehicle efficiency through simulation modelling. Agricultural
applications are entirely different from On road vehicle, so
obtaining optimized vehicle efficiency was difficult because
tractor will be used for different application & usage pattern
on the same day. During design concept stage, the current vehicle
data will be used to set the required target of vehicle efficiency
for hybrid electric vehicle. DOE technique was used to predict the
vehicle efficiency by modelling and analysis through AMESim
Simulation tool for different hybrid electric types. The results
were analyzed with the current vehicle performance. This simulation
model integrates the Vehicle, Transmission, PTO, Engine, Hybrid
electric model which consists of Motor/Generator, Battery &
coupling mechanism, Control Model for both vehicle & hybrid.
Operating environmental conditions, usage patterns were used as
input to the model. The final result is to achieve the optimized
vehicle efficiency by choosing the optimal hybrid concept through
conducting virtual DOE of various parameter like Battery &
Motor/Generator sizing & Control logic.
