Optimal Line Pressure Control for an Automatic Transmission-Based Parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle considering Mode Change and Gear Shift

An optimal line pressure control algorithm was proposed for the fuel economy improvement of an AT-based parallel hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). By performing lever analysis at each gear step, the required line pressure was obtained considering the torque ratio of the friction elements. In addition, the required line pressure of the mode clutch was calculated. Based on these results, the optimal line pressure map at each gear step of the EV and HEV modes was presented. Using the line pressure map, an optimal line pressure was performed for the AT input torque and mode. To investigate the proposed line pressure control algorithm, a HEV performance simulator was developed based on the powertrain model of the target HEV, and fuel economy improvement was evaluated. Simulation results showed that as the gear step became higher, the optimal line pressure control could reduce the hydraulic power loss, which gave a 2.2% fuel economy improvement compared to the existing line pressure control for the FTP-72 mode.
