An Algorithm of Optimum Torque Control for Hybrid Vehicles 980890

An algorithm for a fuel efficient hybrid drivetrain control system that can attain fewer exhaust emissions and higher fuel economy was investigated. The system integrates a lean burn engine with high supercharging, an exhaust gas recycle system, an electric machine for power assist, and an electronically controlled gear transmission. Smooth switching of the power source, the air-fuel ratio,pressure ratio, exhaust gas ratio as a function of the target torque were analyzed. The estimation of air mass in cylinder by using an air flow meter was investegated to control the air-fuel ratio precisely during transients.
