1. Cox, Jonathan Douglas. Model-based design and specification of a hybrid electric Chevrolet Camaro for the EcoCAR 3 competition.

Degree: MS, Mechanical Engineering, 2016, Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech has the privilege of competing in EcoCAR 3, a four-year competition in which 16 universities are given a stock 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and work to transform it into a hybrid electric sports car. In this thesis, an overview of the first two years of the author’s work on the team as the Engineering Manager, the graduate student overseeing all vehicle engineering work, will be detailed. The competition will be introduced and described before a discussion on vehicle electrification and the various ways it has been achieved by manufacturers and competition teams. Next, the design of the Georgia Tech vehicle will be presented with a focus on powertrain and supporting component selection. The vehicle model underlying many of these decisions will then be discussed in detail, showing how the team used Simulink and Engineering Equation Solver to effectively predict vehicle performance, emissions, energy consumption, and cooling needs. Building on this, the controls design process known as model/software/hardware in the loop will be discussed in the context of the Georgia Tech team’s use of this process. Finally, a progress update will be given, including photos of the team vehicle in current build state weeks before the Year 2 Competition. Advisors/Committee Members: Leamy, Michael J. (advisor), Taylor, David (committee member), Ferri, Aldo (committee member).

2. Yatsko, Margaret Jane. Development of a Hybrid Vehicle Control System.

Degree: MS, Mechanical Engineering, 2016, The Ohio State University

The EcoCAR 3 project is a four-year competition sponsored by General Motors and the U.S. Department of Energy challenging 16 university teams to re-engineer a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro to be a performance hybrid electric vehicle. The Ohio State University designed a parallel hybrid electric vehicle with a 0 to 60 mph acceleration goal of 5.6 seconds and a 44 mile all electric range. Before the performance and emissions goals can be met the team must fully mechanically and electrically integrate their hybrid vehicle architecture. Concurrently to the vehicle integration, the controls team developed the basic vehicle controls that would be required to meet the goals for the second year of the competition. The controls development started with fully defining the vehicle controls requirements and then evaluating which requirements would be met in each part of the development process. The controls validation occurred using a team-developed vehicle model in both the Software- and Hardware-in-the-Loop environments. The main focus for this part of the development was defining and implementing the basic controls, such as controller communication and vehicle startup, which are critical to eventually having a fully functional vehicle. With the Year 2 controls validated in the HIL environment, a vehicle implementation plan was developed to be implemented and validated by May of 2016. The full controls development plan that was developed to meet the high level team goals included both performance and efficiency modes that will be implemented and validated in Year 3 and 4 of the EcoCAR 3 project. Advisors/Committee Members: Midlam-Mohler, Shawn (Advisor).
