Abstract

In this article the development and use of a data acquisition system for the optimization of hybrid propulsion systems is proposed. This versatile system can be used for different hybrid driveline architectures and for off- and on-road data logging. It retrieves the necessary parameters to develop or assess the power flow control algorithm of the vehicle under test, in order to optimize the driveline and reduce energy consumption and emissions. It is based on a cRIOTM programmable controller of National Instruments in combination with dedicated sensors and interfaces for the data acquisition of electrical and mechanical parameters. The assets and configuration of the system are discussed. Experimental data are given and discussed. In addition the HEV simulation platform developed in parallel is briefly described.
