About this book

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 the 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.
Three case studies are included in the book:
• a control strategy for a micro-hybrid power train;
• experimental results obtained with a real-time strategy implemented in a hybrid electric truck; and
• an analysis of the optimal component sizes for a hybrid power train.
Optimal Control of Hybrid Vehicles will appeal to academic researchers and graduate students interested in hybrid vehicle control or in the applications of 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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book presents recent results on energy management for hybrid electric vehicles. … It is an excellent resource for those researchers interested in optimal energy management for vehicles used in intelligent transportation systems. The book is of great interest to those in the disciplines of Electrical, Mechanical, and Control Engineering and Transportation Engineering and renewable and green energy. The reviewer … enjoyed thoroughly reading the book and welcomes as an excellent addition to the field.” (D. Subbaram Naidu, Amazon.com, April, 2014)
