Abstract

This paper presents advanced Compact Hybrid Planetary Transmission Drive (CHPTD) as a solution for the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Proper architecture and elements were designed to achieve the functions of PHEV. The parameters of powertrain were adjusted and optimized by simulation. Two basic control strategies were selected and analyzed to achieve minimum energy consumption and the proper operation range of battery state of charge (SOC). The very effective operation of the improved powertrain was proved by tests in different driving cycles regarding the traffic both in city and suburb area. The advantage of planetary transmission, which is power summing mechanical unit, was obtained by the proper design and the control of innovative high energy saving electromagnetic clutch-brake device based on classic dual-diaphragm spring system, which also permits to apply multi-speed additional automatic mechanical transmission.
