Electric and hybrid vehicle technology is rapidly progressing worldwide in an attempt to lessen the air quality impacts of personal transportation and to reduce dependence on petroleum fuels. This book describes recent advances made in optimizing vehicle performance, fuel economy, and emissions, and keeping cost and complexity within consumer-acceptable limits. Contents include: development of a new hybrid system - dual system; robust control of a parallel hybrid drivertrain with a CVT; optimization of a CNG series hybrid concept vehicle; switched reluctance drives for electric and hybrid vehicles; power improved ZEBRA battery for zero emission vehicles; and engine control strategy for a series hybrid electric vehicle incorporating load-leveling and computer controlled energy management.
