The automotive industry is waking up to the fact that hybrid electric vehicles could provide an answer to the ever-increasing need for lower-polluting and more fuel-efficient forms of personal transport. This is the first book to give comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the hybrid vehicle design, from its power plant and energy storage systems, to supporting chassis subsystems necessary for realizing hybrid modes of operation. Key topics covered include hybrid propulsion system architectures, propulsion system sizing, electric traction system sizing and design, loss mechanisms, system simulation and vehicle certification. Offering in-depth coverage of hybrid propulsion topics, energy storage systems and modelling, and supporting electrical systems, this book will be an invaluable resource for practicing engineers and managers involved in all aspects of hybrid vehicle development, modelling, simulation and testing. It will also be of interest to postgraduate students in the field. About the Author: Dr. John M. Miller is founder of J-N-J Design Services P.L.C., where he serves as principal engineer. Dr. Miller worked for 20 years on electric and hybrid vehicle programs and vehicle electrical system simulation at the Ford Motor Company research laboratories. He was technical project leader of Ford's 42V Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) product development program, and represented Ford on several high visibility initiatives, including the US Department of Energy's partnership for a new generation of vehicle (PNGV) initiative and the Virginia Institute of Technology and State University lead NSF Center for Power Electronic Systems (CPES). He remains active on the MIT-Industry Consortium on Advanced Automotive Electrical and Electronic Components, and is an adjunct professor at Michigan State University, where he has taught a graduate-level course in electrical machines and drives, and at Texas AaM University, where he has lectured on hybrid propulsion systems. Dr. Miller holds 43 US patents and has authored 106 publications on automotive electrical and electronic systems. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.This is the first book to give comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the hybrid vehicle design, from its power plant and energy storage systems, to the supporting chassis subsystems necessary for realising hybrid modes of operation.
