A Real Time implementation of an Optimal Con­ trol Strategy for a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle is presented. The optimization aimed at minimizing the overall CO2 emission of the vehicle by considering a Well-To-Wheel approach: the control objective has been achieved by applying the Pontrya­ gin's Minimum Principle to a mathematical model of an exper­(More)
An evolutionary algorithm has been developed for the design of diesel engine in order to fulfill present-day and future regulations about pollutant emissions and greenhouse gases. The competitive goals to be achieved in engine optimization are the reduction of emission levels (soot, NOx and HC) and the improvement of specific fuel consumption. They have(More)
The simulation of direct injection diesel engines requires accurate models to predict spray evolution and combustion processes. Several models have been proposed for traditional injection strategies characterized by single injection pulse close to top dead center and no EGR. Unfortunately, these models show some limits when applied to different injection(More)
An evolutionary algorithm has been developed for the design of a diesel engine combustion chamber in order to fulfill present day and future regulations about pollutant emissions and greenhouse gases.

The aim of the present investigation is to analyze the performance of multi-objective genetic algorithms in the optimization of a Hybrid Electric powertrain powered by a PEM fuel cell with both batteries and supercapacitors as secondary energy storage systems. To model the powertrain, an on-purpose simulation program (ECoS) implemented in Matlab/Simulink(More)
