Abstract

This paper describes a dynamic simulation model built to assess Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) performance and lithium-ion battery performance installed in PHEVs. First, we examine vehicle performance. In particular, the effects of engine on/off controls and the effects of drive distance are evaluated, because they have significant impact on PHEVs environmentally friendly performance. A study of cycle life test methods for batteries installed in PHEVs is also examined. Here, we discuss the establishment of a common PHEV battery charge/discharge test profile for Japan, the US, and Europe.
