Improving Hybrid Electric Vehicle fuel efficiency by path forecasting
Fuel consumption of hybrid electric vehicles and high computation requirements of Dynamic Programming
The invention includes a receding horizon control (RHC) algorithm in combination with a novel approach of route decomposition and control of battery charging and discharging when vehicle decelerates/accelerates, to minimize fuel consumption over a pre-planned or predicted route. In addition, the RHC strategy creates a virtual terminal road segment to optimize the Dynamic Programming (DP) procedures, in order to save computing time and efforts.
