Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design and Control: Intelligent Omnidirectional Hybrids

by: Yangsheng Xu, Jingyu Yan, Huihuan Qian, Tin Lun Lam


Abstract: Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design and Control explains how to implement the design of a novel intelligent omnidirectional hybrid electric vehicle. The book fully discusses advanced control methods, anti-noise online state of charge estimation, fast charging, cell equalization, and energy management in addition to typical coverage of the powertrain system—electric motor, battery, DC/DC, charger. The transformation of the vehicle powertrain system—replacing the traditional mechanical transmission system with driving-by-wire and control-by-wire technologies—also introduces a revolution in vehicle design concepts. Novel features such as 4-wheel independent steering (4WIS), 4-wheel independent driving (4WID), and battery and energy system management are possible. This unique guide systematically elaborates on the concepts, structure, implementation, key components, and control systems for intelligent omnidirectional hybrid electric vehicles; provides details of a vehicle prototype into which the new vehicle design concept and advanced control technologies are incorporated; covers step-by-step development of an intelligent omnidirectional hybrid electric vehicle; and is filled with figures and tables to illustrate both simulation and experimental results.
