Abstract

This paper presents a modelling and simulation approach for determining the optimal degree-of-hybridisation for the drive train (engine, electric machine size) and the energy storage system (battery, ultra capacitor) for a medium-duty truck. The results show that the degree-of-hybridisation of known medium-duty hybrid electric trucks is close to the optimal degree-of-hybridisation using the methods as described in this paper. Furthermore, it is found that the Li-ion battery is from an energy and power density as well as cost point of view the most preferable energy storage system.
