Toyota Motor Corporation has developed the new compact-class hybrid vehicle (HV). This vehicle incorporates Toyota Hybrid System II (THS-II) to improve fuel efficiency. For this system we have developed a new power control unit (PCU) that features size reduction, light weight, and high efficiency. We have also improved the ability to mass produce these units with the expectation of rapid popularization of HV. The PCU, which plays an important role in THS-II, is our main focus in this paper. Its development is described.
