Abstract: Recently, the area of Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) has seen a tremendous growth all over the world. Due to increasing levels of emissions from the conventional vehicles, rising fuel prices and environmental concerns due to global warming, entire focus of automotive industry is shifted to development of HEV’s. The HEV’s are classified into various configurations depending upon the degree of hybridization which include the performance of the IC engine and electric battery simultaneously for the traction purpose. The physical overview and modeling of Hybrid electric vehicle is discussed. The importance of the dc-dc converter which acts as an interface between battery and the motor drive for bi-directional power flow is proposed .In this paper, bi-directional full bridge dc-dc converter and its implementation in Series-Parallel HEV is presented .This converter topology accounts for motoring as well as regenerative braking operations.
Keywords: HEV, Bidirectional Dc-Dc Converter, Power Flow, Full Bridge, Series-Parallel, Electric Vehicle, Automotive Industry.
Scope of the Article: Process and Workflow Management.
