  • Index

    Engineering, for much of the twentieth century, was mainly about artifacts and inventions. Now, it's increasingly about complex systems. As the airplane taxis to the gate, you access the Internet and check email with your PDA, linking the communication and transportation systems. At home, you recharge your plug-in hybrid vehicle, linking transportation to the electricity grid. Today's large-scale, highly complex sociotechnical systems converge, interact, and depend on each other in ways engineers of old could barely have imagined. As scale, scope, and complexity increase, engineers consider technical and social issues together in a highly integrated way as they design flexible, adaptable, robust systems that can be easily modified and reconfigured to satisfy changing requirements and new technological opportunities.Engineering Systems offers a comprehensive examination of such systems and the associated emerging field of study. Through scholarly discussion, concrete examples, and history, the authors consider the engineer's changing role, new ways to model and analyze these systems, the impacts on engineering education, and the future challenges of meeting human needs through the technologically enabled systems of today and tomorrow.

  • POWER MANAGEMENT CONTROL STRATEGY OF BATTERY¿¿?SUPERCAPACITOR HYBRID ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM USED IN ELECTRIC VEHICLES

    Energy storage and power management are two critical factors to the performance of various electric vehicles (EV), including pure, hybrid, and plug¿¿?in hybrid EVs. This chapter focuses on the state¿¿?of¿¿?the¿¿?art technologies of hybrid energy storage systems (HESS) for EVs, mainly in power management strategy. It analyzes low¿¿?level hybrid topologies of hybrid system. The chapter discusses high¿¿?level supervisory control between battery and supercapacitor. It describes the advantages and disadvantages of four commonly used hybrid structures for EVs. Effective management of power flow via optimal use of supercapacitor bank and battery pack and via an efficient power flow controller are the key to achieving high performance. The chapter investigates some power management strategies from both time domain control and frequency domain control to improve system efficiency, battery life cycle, and robustness of the hybrid system. A power management strategy based on wavelet transform algorithm has proved effective in dealing with the transient phenomena in load power demand.
