This project aims to conjointly optimise hybrid powertrains and their associated EMS. The powertrain is modelled using dSPACE, which offers both HIL and SIL simulations.
This model is capable of increasing the number of planetary gears up to three. The effect of increasing the number of planetary gears in a hybrid powertrain is also studied.
Optimisation of EMS is ongoing using AMPL (A Mathematical Programming Language) and KNITRO solver.
