At the University of Birmingham our research leads to new inventions and fuels innovation and business growth.

Background.

Inefficient use of electric and internal combustion engine power in plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) results in reduced battery life and an increase in fuel consumption and emissions.

The University has developed a novel energy management system for PHEVs in which a model-free predictive energy management method is used. The results show that the model-free method can save up to 14% energy compared with the conventional model based method.
