Title

Development of an Educational Small Scale Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Setup

Abstract

In this paper, development of an educational small scale hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) learning module is discussed. The module is comprised of all the key components of an actual HEV that have been scaled down to provide an ideal test platform to evaluate and study hybrid power trains as well as simulate both electric and HEV systems. The test platform consists of low cost off-the-shelf RC parts controlled by Arduino microcontroller boards. LabVIEW is used as an interface to interact with the user, allowing power flow and energy analysis while simulating different drive cycles.
