Abstract

Since 2003 the Federation Internationale de L’automobile (FIA) has started an “Alternative Energies World Cup”(FIA AEC) open to electric, hybrid and unconventional fuel propelled vehicles. The winner of this kind of race, is the car which cover an assigned distance, consuming less specific energy referred to the weight of the vehicle [1], [2]. In June 2009 in the Monza circuit took place a proof of 2009 FIA AEC World Championship. Our research team participated to the race with a Plug-In Hybrid Electrical Vehicle (PHEV) prototype previously developed [3]. The race has been divided in four stages with an assigned distance of 104 km each to be performed during two days for a total distance of 416 km. The circuit has been divided in three sectors, in order to emulate the typical vehicle operating cycles: urban, suburban and freeway. For each sector an average and a maximum speed has been assigned. The adopted PHEV has been provided with data acquisition system able to collect all power train data both electrical (battery voltage, current, power and SOC) and mechanical (vehicle speed and position on the track, throttle and brake pedal position, engine speed and fuel consumption). The paper present an improvement of vehicle performance on the race (reduce the equivalent energy consumption) by means of an improvement of the Energy Storage System (ESS) and the Energy Management System (EMS). The analysis has been performed on a simulation model previously validated [4] and updated with the proposed ESS and EMS.
