The increased market penetration of hybrid electric powertrains in medium heavy-duty (MHD) applications has provided a novel platform for vehicle research. One example of such a platform is the MHD parallel hybrid truck developed by Odyne Systems, LLC. In collaboration with Odyne Systems, LLC and the Department of Energy (DOE), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) developed a validated vehicle plant model for this truck and tested the Odyne powertrain in a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) environment. While testing in the HIL environment, the effects of reduced engine load, and thus catalyst heating, on the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst produced diminished hybrid improvement as the level of energy storage usage increased. This article will discuss these results and the potentially unforeseen interactions with modern aftertreatment systems when hybridizing conventional powertrains.
