Fidelity Enhancement of Power-Split Hybrid Vehicle HIL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) Simulation by Integration with High Voltage Traction Battery Subsystem
Due to the increasing concerns on energy and environmental issues, the automotive industry has seen increased growth and development of electric and electrified vehicles . The power-split design is one of the most common drivetrain configurations of a hybrid or electrified vehicle. The propulsion system of a power-split hybrid vehicle typically comprises of an engine drive system in which the engine, drivetrain and generator are mechanically coupled on a planetary gear set driveline while the electric drive system consists of a high voltage battery and a traction motor . In recent years, Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation has become an increasingly common approach for controls rapid prototyping and validation as part of the automotive product development cycle [2, 3].
