Development and Integration Tests of a Microcomputer Controlled Hybrid Vehicle 820263
This paper describes the hardware and software integration tests of the power train and controller for a hybrid vehicle. The propulsion power is shared between a gasoline engine and a dc shunt motor. The control functions were implemented using a dual Intel 8086 microcomputer system. Dynamometer test results show smooth transitions from one mode of operation to another and comparable performance to conventional gasoline powered automobiles.
