Abstract

This paper includes some of the information gathered regarding the feasibility of converting a series-parallel configured electric vehicle to a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle versus using a series configured electric vehicle to a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. It will explain the theory behind how a series configured hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) might be a better option due to the power rating of the electric motor. Using ADVISOR (Advanced Vehicle Simulator) it will explain test results and form conclusions regarding the efficiency of a series-parallel configured HEV vs. a series configured HEV as it relates to their feasibility of conversion to a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
