Simulation of Hybrid Electric Vehicles with Emphasis on Fuel Economy Estimation 981132

This paper describes SHEV, a computer program created to simulate hybrid electric vehicles. SHEV employs the time-stepping technique in order to evaluate energy flow in series hybrids, and makes use of a unique method in order to speed up the fuel economy estimation. This estimation method is a refinement of the “state of charge matching” method and is explained in detail.
The graphic user interfaces employed in SHEV make it easy to use and give it a look similar to regular Windows‚ applications. This paper also gives some examples of the screens created by the program, depicts its main flowchart, and describes a battery model optimized for this application.
