New book co-authored by three CAR affiliates

Hybrid Electric Vehicles: Energy Management Strategies provides a formal framework for addressing the issue of control and optimization in hybrid electric vehicles. The book is co-written by three authors associated with the Center for Automotive Research.

First author Simona Onori began her early career at CAR as a post-doctoral researcher, climbing the ladder to become research scientist before moving to the position of assistant professor at Clemson University. Lorenzo Serrao, currently on the engineering staff of Dana Italia, graduated from The Ohio State University, where he completed his doctoral dissertation. Serrao was under the advisement of CAR Director Giorgio Rizzoni, who is the third author of the book.

Vehicles utilizing the hybrid electric platform alternate between their two fuel sources—battery and fuel—and this book provides information on implementing a successful energy management strategy. The book develops a real application study  and also includes MATLAB/Simulink files so that the reader can run the case studies discussed in the overview.

The book is published by Springer as part of its SpringerBriefs series in control, automation and robotics.
