Abstract

This work presents the simulation, design and evaluation of an entire hybrid electric all terrain vehicle (ATV) in cooperation between arsenal research and hofer forschungs- und entwicklungs Gmbh & Co KG. All components of the investigated hybrid electric ATV such as power train, electrical machines, batteries, etc., are implemented and modeled in the simulation environment Dymola, using Modelica programming language. The power train set of this hybrid electric ATV is founded on a battery powered electric traction machines and a transmission including all wheel drive (AWD). The variation of type and size of the electrical sources and mechanical powertrain components is considered and explained. For the validation of the entire con- ventional and hybrid electric ATV simulation model, all mechanical and electrical components of the ATV are measured. Based on the measuring of the mechan- ical and electrical ATV components an the simula- tion results performed at arsenal research and hofer forschungs- und entwicklungs Gmbh & Co KG a proto- type of an hybrid electric ATV will be constructed an realised. The entire way from measuring and simulation, to optimization and the choice of the ATV components to the realization of the hybrid electric ATV prototype will be explained. The motivation for electrifying an AWD hybrid electric ATV is the reduction of the fuel consumtion and futhermore a signi cant increasing of powertrain e ciency.
