In order to extend the product applications into plug-in hybrid electric vehicle field, a high capacity lithium-ion battery is configured and matched to the previous compound power-split hybrid transmission which is based on a modified ravigneaux gear set with two additional brake clutches. The equivalent lever diagrams are used to investigate the operating modes for the hybrid system, and its dynamic and kinematic characteristics in equations are derived. To evaluate the economy and power performance of the plug-in hybrid vehicle, a forward-looking simulation platform and components model are established. In addition, the simulating results of key power and economy tests are demonstrated. Results show that the proposed powertrain configuration can be well used for plug-in applications, and the economy and power performance can be further improved.
