A new design for Dedicated Hybrid Transmission (DHT) product platform development solution

With increasing pressure from environment problem for reduction in CO2 emissions and stricter fuel targets from road vehicles, OEM around the globe have to electrification their vehicle range to meet increasingly challenging emission standards in recent years and new transmission technologies are gaining more attention in different main market . The actual and future powertrain development has three major directions in order to reduce or avoid emissions in the transportation sector: Hybrid Vehicles: Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV), Plug-in HEV (PHEV) Electric Vehicles (EV); Range Extender Electric Vehicle (REEV); Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV), Range Extender FCEV (REFCEV). This paper will presents a new type Hybrid transmission which so called “DHT (Dedicated Hybrid Transmission) “ technology for cost-effective HEVs and PHEVs is to permit the design of very compact automatic transmissions with an integrated high-voltage electric motor on the output side of the transmission.

An Improved PID Controller Based on Particle Swarm Optimization for Active Control Engine Mount

Manufacturers have been encouraged to accommodate advanced downsizing technologies such as the Variable Displacement Engine (VDE) to satisfy commercial demands of comfort and stringent fuel economy. Particularly, Active control engine mounts (ACMs) notably contribute to ensuring superior effectiveness in vibration attenuation. This paper incorporates a PID controller into the active control engine mount system to attenuate the transmitted force to the body. Furthermore, integrated time absolute error (ITAE) of the transmitted force is introduced to serve as the control goal for searching better PID parameters. Then the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is adopted for the first time to optimize the PID parameters in the ACM system. Simulation results are presented for searching optimal PID parameters. In the end, experimental validation is conducted to verify the optimized PID controller.
