Wavelet-Galerkin Method on Bounded Intervals for Simulation of Wave Propagation in 1-D Structures Towards integrated vehicle system design: electrification of components Emilia Silvaş, Theo Hofman, Maarten Steinbuch Eindhoven University of Technology, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Section Control Systems Technology, P.O.

Newly developed vehicles should cope with more strict emission regulations, have a decreased fuel consumption and in the same time have advanced performance and be costly convenient. The trend of electrification of components and hybridization of power trains can be observed in multiple transportation sectors, all being driven by market objectives (as fuel economy, pollution or limited resources). In the attempt to develop “greener” cars, research is being conducted for new technologies, power-train architectures and control design. To find the optimal design of a hybrid vehicle is a complex optimization problem. As motivated in more detail in [1], the choice of the optimization algorithm and the definition of the problem will strongly influence the resulting power train. In this presentation, an overview of the global challenges in optimal hybrid vehicle design is presented. Furthermore, examples are given on how these challenges have been addressed so far, what hybrid topologies are commonly used and how are these separated by transportation sectors. By widening the analysis to multiple transportation sectors, it can be concluded that these research questions (in general, the search of optimal design parameters) are acknowledged, yet not addressed or developed properly in an integrated way. Beside the main components that are used for vehicles propulsion, also important energy consumptions are given by the auxiliaries present
