Fuzzy Logic Based Energy Management System For Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Presented by: D. Navin Sam

Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) uses combination of an ICE (internal combustion engine) and electric motors. Overall performance of an HEV with respect to fuel economy and reduction in emission depends on the individual components and good coordination of these components. This energy management strategy is also called as Power Control strategy. The most important and challenging task of energy management strategy is to distribute the vehicle demand power to the ICE and the Electric motor optimally in real time. Due to the complexity of a hybrid electric system, conventional design methods that rely on an exact mathematical model are limited. Fuzzy control is one of the most active and fruitful areas where fuzzy set theory is applied. It is feasible and advantageous to employ fuzzy logic control techniques to design the energy management strategy for a hybrid vehicle system. To achieve this, a general rule based energy management strategy along with the implementation of a fuzzy logic based HEV energy management strategy will be discussed in this webinar. Optimization results and comparisons will also be shown.
