Development of an Educational Small-Scale Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Setup
In this paper, the development of an educational small-scale hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) system is discussed. It consists of all the key components of a real HEV that have been scaled down to provide an ideal test platform to evaluate and study hybrid powertrains. The overall configuration is designed to allow the scaled vehicle to emulate the behavior of a series, parallel, or series-parallel HEV, as well as all-electric operation with minor modifications to the powertrain. The developed test bench not only facilitates hands-on experience but can be considered a safe and affordable solution to providing practical aspects of education in the field of electric and hybrid vehicle technology. Considering the potential of such clean transportation alternatives and their continuous growth, the learning experience obtained using the developed test bench will prove invaluable in preparing next generation professionals for further advancement of this field.
