A Model Predictive Control Approach for Fuel Economy Improvement of a Series Hydraulic Hybrid Vehicle
AbstractThis study applied a model predictive control (MPC) framework to solve the cruising control problem of a series hydraulic hybrid vehicle (SHHV). The controller not only regulates vehicle velocity, but also engine torque, engine speed, and accumulator pressure to their corresponding reference values. At each time step, a quadratic programming problem is solved within a predictive horizon to obtain the optimal control inputs. The objective is to minimize the output error. This approach ensures that the components operate at high efficiency thereby improving the total efficiency of the system. The proposed SHHV control system was evaluated under urban and highway driving conditions. By handling constraints and input-output interactions, the MPC-based control system ensures that the system operates safely and efficiently. The fuel economy of the proposed control scheme shows a noticeable improvement in comparison with the PID-based system, in which three Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controllers are used for cruising control.
