Gupta, S., Sharma, R., K B, Y., Yadav, A. et al., "Supervisory Control Strategy for Mild Hybrid System - A Model Based Approach," SAE Technical Paper 2013-01-0503, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-01-0503.
In this paper, a mild hybrid system is studied for Indian drive conditions. The study is focused to first come up with detailed component sizing through simulation. Different features of mild hybrid system are studied for their individual and cumulative contribution in the fuel economy improvement over the base non-hybrid vehicle. Model based development approach has been employed to develop a supervisory control strategy for such a system. Model based design saves time and cost as it gives flexibility to the control engineer to validate the control design at an early stage of development. The supervisory control strategy is first tested in a simulated environment and then, on a vehicle. To prove the system function, a full hybrid vehicle is experimented as a mild hybrid configuration. Experiments are conducted on the test vehicle over MIDC (certification cycle) to understand the impact of mild hybridization on fuel economy and tail pipe emissions
