Two control strategies for a battery/supercapacitor vehicle have been developed, one optimised to maximise vehicle efficiency and the other to extend battery life by reducing peak battery currents. Both strategies will also improve the vehiclepsilas ability to accelerate. The efficiency strategy improves the yield of the vehicle by up to 7.6%. The battery life strategy reduces battery currents by up to 72%. In both cases, the total extent of improvements depends on the specific drive cycle used… CONTINUE READING
