Study on the characteristics of driving cycles
Published June 12, 2000 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Korea in South Korea
The driving cycles reflect the actual operational condition of vehicles. Based on these cycles, the energy performance of an actual Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle and that of a hypothetical Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) are predicted. The reasons for different results are analyzed using the equal efficiency loops of engine and motor. These lay a foundation for selecting and determining the reasonable driving cycle to select, design and match the vehicles.
