Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) combine the best of two worlds: a long range possible through an internal combustion engine and lower consumption and emissions through electrification. These advantages can, however, only be achieved if the complex powertrains of HEVs are developed using optimally calibrated hybrid controllers. Developing such controllers requires a multi-domain simulation of the entire vehicle including controller functionalities. This is needed to set up smart strategies by considering realistic driving conditions. Using Design of Experiments (DoE), optimized parameters can be gained. This ensures robust controller functions over a wide spectrum of vehicle operations. In this Webinar, AVL’s experts will show how the energy balance of a hybrid vehicle can be optimized using an innovative system simulation. Topics will include setting up a controller strategy and handling several design variants of controller parameters and functionalities.
