Eco Assist Techniques through Real-time Monitoring of BEV Energy Usage Efficiency.

Kim Y, Lee I, Kang S - Sensors (Basel) (2015)

Bottom Line: For eco monitoring, the eco indicator and eco report are suggested to teach eco-friendly driving habits.The vehicle test, which is done in four ways, consists of federal test procedure (FTP)-75, new european driving cycle (NEDC), city and highway cycles, and visual feedback with audible warnings is provided to attract the driver's voluntary participation.The vehicle test result shows that the energy usage efficiency can be increased up to 19.41%.

ABSTRACT
Energy efficiency enhancement has become an increasingly important issue for battery electric vehicles. Even if it can be improved in many ways, the driver's driving pattern strongly influences the battery energy consumption of a vehicle. In this paper, eco assist techniques to simply implement an energy-efficient driving assistant system are introduced, including eco guide, eco control and eco monitoring methods. The eco guide is provided to control the vehicle speed and accelerator pedal stroke, and eco control is suggested to limit the output power of the battery. For eco monitoring, the eco indicator and eco report are suggested to teach eco-friendly driving habits. The vehicle test, which is done in four ways, consists of federal test procedure (FTP)-75, new european driving cycle (NEDC), city and highway cycles, and visual feedback with audible warnings is provided to attract the driver's voluntary participation. The vehicle test result shows that the energy usage efficiency can be increased up to 19.41%.

sensors-15-14946-f007: (a) City driving cycle; (b) Highway driving cycle.

Mentions: In the case of the city driving cycle, the vehicle level test is done in a large empty parking lot using a pre-defined driving profile, which has a general area, a corner area, and a congested area as shown in Figure 7a. A road of about 2.5 km in length and 5.5 min in driving time, which was located in Seoul, South Korea, is used as the testing route. Each area limits the maximum vehicle speed, a vehicle start-stop condition exists between one area and the other area, and a repetitive test per one round turn is performed with a pre-defined driving cycle. For the highway driving cycle, the highway test, which has a total driving distance of 34.7 km and takes 32 min of driving time, is executed as shown in Figure 7b.
