Abstract
This paper provides an overview of Advanced Vehicle Simulator (ADVISOR)—the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) ADVISOR written in the MATLAB/Simulink environment and developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. ADVISOR provides the vehicle engineering community with an easy-to-use, flexible, yet robust and supported analysis package for advanced vehicle modeling. It is primarily used to quantify the fuel economy, the performance, and the emissions of vehicles that use alternative technologies including fuel cells, batteries, electric motors, and internal combustion engines in hybrid (i.e. multiple power sources) configurations. It excels at quantifying the relative change that can be expected due to the implementation of technology compared to a baseline scenario. ADVISOR’s capabilities and limitations are presented and the power source models that are included in ADVISOR are discussed. Finally, several applications of the tool are presented to highlight ADVISOR’s functionality. The content of this paper is based on a presentation made at the ‘Development of Advanced Battery Engineering Models’ workshop held in Crystal City, Virginia in August 2001. # 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.

Abstract This paper summarizes battery modeling capabilities in ADVISOR—the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s advanced vehicle simulator written in the Matlab/Simulink environment. ADVISOR’s Matlab-oriented battery models consist of the following: (1) an internal resistance model, (2) a resistance–capacitance ( RC ) model, (3) a PNGV capacitance model, (4) a neural network (nnet) lead acid model, and (5) a fundamental lead acid battery model. For the models, the electric schematics (where a...

ADVISOR 2.1 is the latest version of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's advanced vehicle simulator. It was first developed in 1994 to support the US Department of Energy hybrid propulsion system program and is designed to be accurate, fast, flexible, easily sharable, and easy to use. This paper presents the model, focusing on its combination of forward- and backward-facing simulation approaches, and evaluates the model in terms of its design goals. ADVISOR predicts acceleration time to w...

Analysing and modelling efforts on production throughput are getting more complex due to random variables in today’s dynamic production systems. The objective of this study is to take multiple random variables of production into account when aiming for production throughput with higher accuracy of prediction. In the dynamic manufacturing environment, production lines have to cope with changes in set-up time, machinery breakdown, lead time of manufacturing, demand, and scrap. This study applied a...

A novel parallel hybrid electric urban bus (PHEUB) configuration consisting of an extra one-way clutch and an automatic mechanical transmission (AMT) is taken as the study subject. Feed-forward computer simulation model of the PHEUB was developed in the system simulation software MATLAB/Simulink environment. The bench test results for the key components of the hybrid powertrain are treated as reliable reference in the modeling. A logic threshold torque distribution control strategy incorporating...

Abstract This paper describes the development of a car driving cycle for the city of Tehran and its suburbs using a new approach based on driving data clustering. In this study, driving data gathering is performed under real traffic conditions using Advanced Vehicle Location (AVL) devices installed on private cars. The recorded driving data is then analyzed, based on “micro-trip” definition. Two driving features including “average speed” and “idle time percentage” are calculated for all micro-tr...

In this paper a novel adaptive regenerative braking control concept for electric vehicles with an electric motor at the front axle is presented. It is well known that the "phased" type regenerative braking systems of category B maximize the amount of regenerative energy during braking. However, there is an increased risk of maneuvering capability loss especially during cornering. An integrated braking controller which determines - in a single step - the desired yaw moment and allocates the braki...

Abstract Range Extender Electric Vehicle (REEV) is a complicated multi-domain engineering system. The road ability on a range extender electric vehicle (REEV) is depending on the balance of subsystems. The important drive components, especially battery, electric machine, wheel and range extender unit are modeled. Vehicle simulation model named AVL Cruise has been used to simulate the balance of subsystems to increase road ability. The complex interactions among the components are taken into acco...

Fuel consumption is viewed as a fundamental problem in boats which are to operate on sea for a long time without need to refueling. In this paper, hybridization of a conventional medium-sized boat to reduce fuel consumption is considered. For this purpose, the optimal sizes for the main components, electric motor, internal combustion engine, and battery and generator are calculated via a constrained particle swarm optimization algorithm which considers accelerating and speeding expectations as t...

Abstract A power train of the fuel cell vehicles includes the battery as a secondary power source to improve the vehicle's performance. In this composition, the vehicle's performance depends largely on quality of energy management strategies (EMSs). In this paper, two EMSs are introduced to control the energy in the fuel cell hybrid vehicle (FCHV). These are: fuzzy logic control (FLC) and operating mode control (OMC). Genetic algorithm (GA) is implemented to optimize these strategies by off-line...

Abstract Among energy buffering alternatives, supercapacitors can provide unmatched efficiency and durability. Additionally, the direct relation between a supercapacitor's terminal voltage and stored energy can improve energy awareness. However, a simple capacitive approximation cannot adequately represent the stored energy in a supercapacitor. It is shown that the three branch equivalent circuit model provides more accurate energy awareness. This equivalent circuit uses three capacitances and a...

Temperature is one of the main factors that control the degradation in lithium ion batteries. Accurate knowledge and control of cell temperatures in a pack helps the battery management system to maximize cell utilization and ensure pack safety and service life. In a pack with arrays of cells, a cell's temperature is not only affected by its own thermal characteristics but also by its neighbors, the cooling system and pack configuration, which increase the noise level and the complexity of cell t...

This paper presents a new composite drive cycle used to evaluate and test the performance of Class 4-6 heavy-duty hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). The new cycle is being used in the ongoing Advanced Heavy Hybrid Propulsion Systems (AHHPS) Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal was to select a cycle that is acceptable to all involved parties, has an achievable speed-time trace for target applications, represents the typical driving pattern of these applications, and is prac...
