Research on energy redistribution of diesel-electric hybrid system considering thermal management constraints

Thermal management is one of the key factors affecting the performance of hybrid vehicles. However, most traditional energy management strategies lack the consideration of thermal constraints under harsh operating conditions. In this paper, taking a specific type of diesel-electric hybrid system as the research object, a strategy for energy redistribution under thermal management constraints is proposed. The diesel-electric hybrid system model is built and verified. Based on the model, the cooling capacity indexes are selected, and the weight coefficient of each cooling capacity index is determined by neighborhood component analysis. Then a comprehensive thermal evaluation system is obtained. Combined with the thermal evaluation system, the energy redistribution strategy based on the momentum gradient descent method is proposed. Two typical working conditions of high altitude and battery cooling system deterioration are selected, and the energy redistribution strategy is simulated and analyzed in real-time under both working conditions. The results show that the energy redistribution strategy can significantly improve the thermal state of the system at the expense of less overall energy consumption, take into account the economy and thermal balance, and ensure the reliable operation of the vehicle.
