Modern Hybrid Electric Vehicles provides vital guidance to help a new generation of engineers master the principles of and further advance hybrid vehicle technology. The authors address purely electric, hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, hybrid hydraulic, fuel cell, and off-road hybrid vehicle systems. They focus on the power and propulsion systems for these vehicles, including issues related to power and energy management. They concentrate on material that is not readily available in other hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) books such as design examples for hybrid vehicles, and cover new developments in the field including electronic CVT, plug-in hybrid, and new power converters and controls.
  • Covers hybrid vs. pure electric, HEV system architecture (including plug-in and hydraulic), off-road and other industrial utility vehicles, non-ground-vehicle applications like ships, locomotives, aircrafts, system reliability, EMC, storage technologies, vehicular power and energy management, diagnostics and prognostics, and electromechanical vibration issues.
  • Contains core fundamentals and principles of modern hybrid vehicles at component level and system level.
  • Provides graduate students and field engineers with a text suitable for classroom teaching or self-study.

About the author (2011)

Chris Mi, University of Michigan; Abdul Masrur, US Army, David Gao, Tennessee Tech
Dr. Chris Mi is Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan, Dearborn. His research interests are in power electronics, motor drives and electric and hybrid vehicles. He is the recipient of the "National Innovation Award", "Government Special Allowance" and "Distinguished Teaching Award" of University of Michigan, Dearborn. He is also a recipient of the 2007 IEEE Region 4 "Outstanding Engineer Award," 2007 "IEEE Southeastern Michigan Section Outstanding Professional Award," and 2007 SAE Environmental Excellence in Transportation (E2T) Award. Dr. Mi is the General Chair of IEEE Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference (www.VPPC09.org).

Dr. Abul Masrur works for the US Army RDECOM-TARDEC (Research Development & Engineering Command), in its Ground Vehicle Power & Mobility (GVPM) Department within TARDEC (Tank Automotive Research Development & Engineering Center), where for the past seven years he has been involved in vehicular electric power system architecture concept design, modeling and simulation, electric power management, and military applications. Prior to this, he worked for more than sixteen years with the Scientific Research Labs of the Ford Motor Co. Dr. Masrur also serves as an adjunct professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Detroit on an advanced course related to vehicular electric power systems. He has authored more than sixty papers and has co-authored eight U.S. patents. He served as an Associate Editor, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, for eight years until September 2007. He received the Best Automotive Electronics Paper Award from the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society in 1998 for his papers in the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. He also received SAE International's Environmental Excellence in Transportation Award in Education, Training, & Public Awareness for a hybrid electric vehicle tutorial course. Dr. Masrur is currently the Chair of the Motor Subcommittee (MSC) under the Electric Machinery Committee, IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES).

Dr. David W. Gao is currently an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tennessee Tech University (TTU), teaching "Hybrid Electric Vehicle" at graduate-level. Previously he worked as an Assistant Research Professor in the University of South Carolina and Mississippi State University (MSU). He has published more than 30 papers in international journals and conference proceedings.
