Abstract
A real-time nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) for the thermal management (TM) of the electrical components cooling circuit in a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is presented. The electrical components are highly temperature-sensitive and therefore working out of the ranges recommended by the manufacturer can lead to their premature aging or even failure. Consequently, the goals for an accurate and efficient TM are two: to keep the main component, the Li-ion battery, within optimal ...
