A review of the relevance of driving condition mapping and vehicle simulation for energy management system design

With the emerging trend of transportation electrification, energy management strategies have become of significant importance in automotive engineering. Control systems are developed with the objective to increase vehicle efficiency, thus lowering fuel consumption and harmful gas emissions. Both the methodology and tools for powertrain systems design as well as vehicle performance assessment are challenging with a constant necessity for improvement. For both aspects, the importance of developing realistic driving scenarios accounting for real and sometimes random driving conditions is irrefutable. This paper provides an overview of the current state-of-the-art technologies in energy management strategies (EMSs), highlighting how driving conditions and journey mapping can influence the performance of these systems. In addition, a review of vehicle simulators is performed emphasising how such tools could support the system level vehicle development.
