A new electromechanical power-splitting full-hybrid transmission with two shifting elements, namely a four-shaft planetary gear and an electronic continuously variable transmission, is introduced in this paper. This transmission was developed with the aim of combining all the advantages of an internal combustion engine and two electric motors in an optimal way so as to improve the power performance and the fuel economy. The architecture and analogy of the four-shaft planetary gear are analysed, a control strategy is designed, and the engine management system and hybrid control system are calibrated. To evaluate the performance, the control strategy and the calibrated results, nine tests were performed as per the New European Driving Cycle under various initial conditions, different maps and different thresholds. The test results indicate that a four-shaft planetary gear, electronic continuously variable transmission hybrid electric vehicle can realize good fuel economy and good emissions performance except for nitrogen oxide emissions. The best fuel consumption obtained was 5.4 l/100 km. The amount of nitrogen oxide emissions needs to be decreased by optimizing the control strategy of the hybrid control system and calibration of the engine management system in future research. © 2012 IMechE.

The idle-stopping function of hybrid electric vehicle(HEV) not only increases the starts, but also postpones three-way catalyst(TWC) activation, bringing unfavorable influence on engine emission. So start process of hybrid is worth of studying. To satisfy the drivability and acceleration performance, extra fuel is required for engine at conventional vehicle acceleration. Transient fuel will deteriorate emissions dramatically, and it is hard to control the transient emissions. Hybrid start and acceleration strategies were developed based on the ISG characteristic. The air-fuel ratio(AFR) at cold start and hot start is under control. The concept of ISG "fast" and "slow" torque to overcome the conventional engine transient fuel is proposed. Reasonable ECU and VCU parameters are determined. Tests at NEDC driving cycle were conducted both on conventional and hybrid modes. Result shows that the conventional start fuel reduces with aid of ISG motoring. The transient fuel at acceleration is replaced by the ISG torque. The HEV can simultaneously realize reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.

A torsional vibration dynamic model is built to predict the torsional vibration characteristics of a power-split hybrid system. On the basis of this dynamic model, the system dynamic equations of hybrid driveline are set, from which the natural frequencies and relevant mode shapes under different driving modes are solved using the corresponding eigenvalue problem. The calculated results show that the low frequencies occur mainly in the torsional vibration of wheels and vehicle, the intermediate frequencies are relevant to the torsional vibration of the sun gears, the differential and the reducer, in general, and the high frequencies are related to the torsional vibration of planets.

A novel single-mode compound split hybrid transmission with a compound planetary gear set and two brakes has been studied, which has more freedom of control to increase the system efficiency. System dynamics and matching performance of the driveline including a compound planetary gear set for a single-mode hybrid electric vehicle are numerically investigated. The multi-degrees of freedom torsional vibration model for the full-hybrid vehicle driveline with the power split device is established by MATLAB/Simulink. For comparison of the natural characteristic, eigenfrequencies and mode shapes are determined with the aid of a further simplified single-track mechanical model under different operation modes. Then, numerical simulations of dynamics and kinematics of the driveline and the compound planetary gear set are carried out. In the end, for alleviation of the severe vibrations of the driveline, effects of the torsional damper and the flywheel on the whole system vibrations are examined.

The comparative analysis of prototype engine between conventional starting motor start and high-speed cranking start with ISG (integrate starter/generator) was carried out to examine the variation regulation of engine transient speed, cylinder pressure, fuel compensation factor, intake air pressure, ignition timing, HC conversion efficiency, exhaust temperature and transient HC emission. The results show that, with cranking speed increasing, the intake pressure drops, causing the intake air quantity reduces, and fuel-film evaporation time shortens, the mixture atomization gets insufficient. The misfire occurs and the transient HC emission peak arises. All these phenomena have close relationship with ECT (engine coolant temperature). Fuel compensation in the first few working cycles of starting process can correct original lean mixture so as to decrease HC emission. Retarding ignition can raise the exhaust gas temperature. The conversion efficiency of three-way catalytic converter (TWC) in cold and warmed-up conditions is quite different. When engine is warmed up and the ignition timing is -10 °CA, the TWC lights off within 40 s and its HC conversion efficiency reaches about 90 % within 60 s.

In this study, the synergistic catalytic mechanism of Co3O4 and graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposite in the heterogeneous activation of peroxymonosulfate (PMS) to generate sulfate radicals was studied. The activation of Co3O4/GO with different Co3O4 loadings in the catalyst [bare graphene oxide (GO), 20% Co3O4/GO, 30% Co3O4/GO, 50% Co3O4/GO, 70% Co3O4/GO, 90% Co3O4/GO, 95% Co3O4/GO, and pure Co3O4] were tested though the degradation of Orange II in water. The results show that the highest performance achieved using the Co3O4/GO catalyst was based on a synergistic catalysis between Co3O4 and GO. Furthermore, a proportional relation exists between Co3O4 and the catalyst. The highest catalytic activity is observed when the Co3O4 loading was about 50% in the catalyst. Co-OH complexes form on the surface of the GO sheet through the direct interaction of Co species with nearby hydroxyl groups or through the dissociation of H2O with Co2+. The formation is proposed to facilitate the heterogeneous activation of PMS. However, a high Co3O4 loading on the GO surface prevents the formation of Co-OH complexes, which is important in the catalytic reaction. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

According to different braking control strategies, the regenerative braking systems of hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) are classified into three categories: series braking with the best braking effect, series braking with the maximum energy regeneration rate and parallel braking, which are then analyzed respectively. A control strategy is put forward based on SOC, vehicle speed and the position of braking pedal, and is applied to a typical parallel HEV. The test results show that the braking control strategy proposed can recovery more braking energy with better braking feeling on the premise of safety assurance.
