Provides engineers in the automotive industry with practical applications of power train control for hybrid vehicles
For the academic researcher, the text describes a novel solution for state-constrained optimal control problems
Includes experimental results that justify the theoretical ideas presented
An exposition of the state of the art in power-train control for hybrid vehicles not available elsewhere
Optimal Control of Hybrid Vehicles provides a description of power train control for hybrid vehicles. The background, environmental motivation and control challenges associated with hybrid vehicles are introduced. The text includes mathematical models for all relevant components in the hybrid power train. The power split problem in hybrid power trains is formally described and several numerical solutions detailed, including dynamic programming and a novel solution for state-constrained optimal control problems based on Pontryagin’s maximum principle.
Real-time-implementable strategies that can approximate the optimal solution closely are dealt with in depth. Several approaches are discussed and compared, including a state-of-the-art strategy which is adaptive for vehicle conditions like velocity and mass.
Two case studies are included in the book:
· a control strategy for a micro-hybrid power train; and
· experimental results obtained with a real-time strategy implemented in a hybrid electric truck
Optimal Control of Hybrid Vehicles will appeal to academic researchers and graduate students interested in hybrid vehicle control or in the applications of energy management using optimal control. Practitioners working in the design of control systems for the automotive industry will also find the ideas propounded in this book of interest.
Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage the transfer of technology in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology has an impact on all areas of the control discipline. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of new work in all aspects of industrial control.
