Energy Management Strategy for Hybrid Electric Vehicles
This paper focus on the analysis of energy management for hybrid electric vehicles. The development of higher efficiency vehicles depends on the analysis of vehicle characteristics and driving conditions. Sizing the energy capacity of the storage system and defining the type of components, batteries or other kinds of electric components has a direct influence over the performance, consumption and autonomy of the vehicle. The forces involved in a vehicle movement such as aerodynamic drag, rolling resistance, grading resistance, are fully dependent on the conditions of the route; most situations should be represented on the driving pattern cycle, used for emissions and consumption tests, which will be presented and discussed. Modeling vehicle dynamic to analyze power and energy requirements of the vehicle during different test cycles provides an indication of the influence of hybrid technology in performance and fuel consumption.
