This thesis focuses on the static optimization of a fuel cell plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The vehicle is been powered by three (3) sources of electrical energy. These sources of electrical energy are: fuel cell, supercapacitor, and lithium-ion battery.
The main target of this thesis is to make good the performance of a fuel cell plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. This will be achieved by applying static optimization method on the dynamic equations of a moving hybrid vehicle.
The optimization model of this plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) was formulated bases on multiple objectives. The objective parameters are: cost, volume, and mass. We were able to apply static optimization algorithm to find optimal solutions for both the objective values and decision variables of the multiple energy sources.
The optimization model formulated from the dynamic equations, objective specifications, and design constrains were found to be feasible, bounded, and optimizable by subjecting the primal optimization model to its equivalent dual optimization test.
Advanced vehicle simulator (ADVISOR) was used to stimulate vehicle performance of our design on a standard driving cycle. The results provide a better outcome than that of standard driving cycles.
