Abstract: Three configurations (series, parallel, and series-parallel) of the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) are studied, this study investigates the advantages and disadvantages of three HEV in the paper. Power flow simulations are conducted with the MATLAB/Simulink-based software Advanced Vehicle Simulator (ADVISOR). These simulations are used to study how efficiency and agility are affected by the motor, fuel converter, and hybrid configuration for the City Hybrid bus design. Input cycles are created based on rough estimates of track geometry. The output from these ADVISOR simulations is a series of plots of velocity profile and energy storage State of Charge (SOC) that provide a good estimate of how the City Hybrid bus will perform on the given course. The most noticeable discrepancy between the input cycle and the actual velocity profile of the HEV occurs during deceleration. Results show that the series-parallel HEV configuration is optimal, and provides the references in both parameter optimization and performance debugging for the development of City Hybrid bus.


Keywords: HEV, ADVISOR, Dynamic characteristics, SOC, Simulation.
