The demonstration shows different operating modes of the HEV over one complete cycle: accelerating, cruising, recharging the battery while accelerating and regenerative braking.
The Electrical Subsystem is composed of four parts: The electrical motor, the generator, the battery, and the DC/DC converter.
The Planetary Gear Subsystem models the power split device. It uses a planetary device, which transmits the mechanical motive force from the engine, the motor and the generator by allocating and combining them.
The Internal Combustion Engine subsystem models a 57 kW @ 6000 rpm gasoline fuel engine with speed governor.
The Vehicle Dynamics subsystem models all the mechanical parts of the vehicle.
The Energy Management Subsystem (EMS) determines the reference signals for the electric motor drive, the electric generator drive and the internal combustion engine in order to distribute accurately the power from these three sources.
