Fuel Consumption, Exhaust Emission and Vehicle Performance Simulations of a Series-Hybrid Electric Non-Automotive Vehicle
Halit Yaşar, Gökhan Canbolat
In the recent years, the studies on hybrid electric vehicles have been increased in automotive industry. Particularly, the studies focused on passenger cars. However, the studies conducted on Non-Automotive Vehicle (Vehicles not suitable for standard driving cycles) are not adequate. Additionally, the current driving cycles are not appropriate to simulate these vehicles. In this work, a series hybrid electric street sweeper is modeled and simulated by using AVL Cruise. This study aims that performing a series hybrid electric vehicle simulation and presenting its fuel consumption, vehicle performance and exhaust emissions theoretically. An appropriate driving cycle was constructed by using Random Cycle Generator of AVL Cruise in terms of velocity and functionality. The simulations were performed depending on this driving cycle. Vehicle block diagrams were created in software and the connections of vehicle such as mechanical, electrical and informational were demonstrated. Consequently, the fuel consumption, vehicle performance and exhaust emissions such as CO, HC, NOx and PM were presented depending on driving cycle.
