Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) are essential for reducing fuel consumption and emissions. However, when analyzing different segments of the transportation industry, for example, public transportation or different sizes of delivery trucks and how the HEV are used, it is clear that one powertrain may not be optimal in all situations. Choosing a hybrid powertrain architecture and proper component sizes for different applications is an important task to find the optimal trade-off between fuel economy, drivability, and vehicle cost. However, exploring and evaluating all possible architectures and component sizes is a time-consuming task. A search algorithm, using Gaussian Processes, is proposed that simultaneously explores multiple architecture options, to identify the Pareto-optimal solutions. The search algorithm is designed to carefully select the candidate in each iteration which is most likely to be Pareto-optimal, based on the results from previous candidates, to reduce computational time. The powertrain of a medium-sized series plugin hybrid electric delivery truck with a range extender is optimized for different driving missions. Three different powertrain architectures are included in the design space exploration and…

Drive Scenario Generation Based on Metrics for Evaluating an Autonomous Vehicle Controller

The Ohio State University-Santhosh Tamilarasan, Daniel Jung, Levent Guvenc
Published 2018-04-03 by SAE International in United States
An important part of automotive driving assistance systems and autonomous vehicles is speed optimization and traffic flow adaptation. Vehicle sensors and wireless communication with surrounding vehicles and road infrastructure allow for predictive control strategies taking near-future road and traffic information into consideration to improve fuel economy. For the development of autonomous vehicle speed control algorithms, it is imperative that the controller can be evaluated under different realistic driving and traffic conditions. Evaluation in real-life traffic situations is difficult and experimental methods are necessary where similar driving conditions can be reproduced to compare different control strategies. A traditional approach for evaluating vehicle performance, for example fuel consumption, is to use predefined driving cycles including a speed profile the vehicle should follow. However, if the vehicle speed is part of the vehicle control output, a different vehicle evaluation framework is necessary. Here, speed constraints are defined based on route and traffic conditions, such as speed limits, traffic signs and signals, and the locations of surrounding vehicles. Hence, route generation is an important task for evaluating speed control…

Effects of Thermal and Auxiliary Dynamics on a Fuel Cell Based Range Extender

Ohio State University-Pradeep Sharma Oruganti, Qadeer Ahmed, Daniel Jung
Published 2018-04-03 by SAE International in United States
Batteries are useful in Fuel Cell Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FCHEV) to fulfill transient demands and for regenerative braking. Efficient energy management strategies paired with optimal powertrain design further improves the efficiency. In this paper, a new methodology to simultaneously size the propulsive elements and optimize the power-split strategy of a Range Extended Battery Electric Vehicle (REBEV), using a Polymer Electron Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC), is proposed and preliminary studies on the effects of the driving mission profile and the auxiliary power loads on the sizing and optimal performance of the powertrain design are carried out. Dynamic Programming is used to compute the optimal energy management strategy for a given driving mission profile, providing a global optimal solution. The component sizing problem is performed using a machine learning based, guided design space exploration to find the set of Pareto-optimal solutions that give the best trade-offs between the different objectives. The powertrain model includes the dynamic behavior of the fuel cell system compressor and a battery lumped parameter thermal model along with the quasi-static semi-empirical model of…
