Abstract

Multimode powertrains represent one of the most versatile solutions for hybrid electric vehicles where multiple power sources are integrated with aim of improving fuel economy and reducing pollutants emission in every operating condition. Some hybrid powertrain designs feature multiple planetary gear sets whose components can be directly driven by the powertrain actuators (electric motor or thermal engine) or can be connected through clutches and brakes. The advantages due to the availability of multiple modes are mitigated by the increase of production costs and complexity because of the higher number of components required if compared with the single mode solutions. A numerical methodology is adapted from the literature to analyze, categorize, and compare each distinct working configuration. The energy consumption of each powertrain configuration is then evaluated through the power-weighted efficiency concept whose formulation normalize the contribution from each power source. This paper aims at extending the methodology to investigate the operating range for each powertrain configuration to always achieve the maximum efficiency. The methodology is then applied to the realistic case study of the EVT 2-Mode Hybrid System.
