Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS)


With an eye to the future development and potential problems of vehicle power management, this chapter first introduces some state-of-the-art technologies in alternative fuel vehicles and accordingly powertrain components, and then delineates several thoughts including appropriate combinations of existing strategies, more considerations of safety factors from new components, precision improvement of battery SOC, better prediction of driving patterns using advanced communication technologies, etc. Magnificent prospects of vehicle power management are painted for readers in this chapter.
