Overview

  • Project Introduction

  • Customer Requirements

    • Initial Survey

    • Conjoint Analysis

    • Results

  • Hybrid Architectures

    • Simulation Design

    • Architecture Selection

    • Battery Power Selection


Introduction l.jpg
Introduction

  • Motorsport industry worth over £2.9 billion

    • A further £1.7 billion in sponsorship, PR etc

  • Carbon emissions and climate change

    • Industry under pressure to be more green

    • Technical innovation should move to road

  • Hybrid vehicles have the potential to;

    • Reduce vehicle emissions

    • Increase overall vehicle power


Uk niche vehicle manufacturers l.jpg
UK Niche Vehicle Manufacturers

  • Approx 200 UK vehicle manufacturers

    • Same as the rest of the world put together

    • Mostly sports/racing cars

      • High power to weight ratio

  • Small R&D budget

  • Sustainable technologies

    • Misunderstood or viewed with suspicion

    • Formula 1 - KERS


Westfield sportscars l.jpg
Westfield Sportscars

  • Typical small British Manufacturer

    • 3 models

    • Mainly Lotus Seven Type vehicle

    • Used both for road and racing

  • Clubman racing

    • Affordable

    • Custom classes

  • Sell toys, not cars


Project vision l.jpg
Project Vision

  • Design a hybrid powertrain for motorsport

    • Increase the vehicle’s performance

    • Fast development platform

  • Hybrid system should be vehicle independent

    • Hybrid system is independent of vehicle platform

      • Westfield Sportscars initially

    • Hybrid system is independent of IC engine

    • Hybrid should retrofit

  • Play Station Generation

    • Push to pass / F1


Initial survey l.jpg
Initial Survey

  • Administered via internet

    • Simple multiple choice survey

  • Asked to:

    • Rate 14 attributes between 1 and 10

    • Rate 9 optional extras between 1, 9 and DW

      • All attainable through hybrid/electric drivetrain

  • 249 responses over two week period





Conjoint analysis l.jpg
Conjoint Analysis

Ask people what they want, and they say, “the best of everything.”

Ask what they would like to spend; they say, “as little as possible.”


Conjoint analysis12 l.jpg
Conjoint Analysis

  • Simple Surveys

    • Fail to capture consumer trade-offs

    • Trade-offs may underlie consumer choice

  • Conjoint Analysis

    • Provides more realistic approach

    • Presents attributes as a product

    • Participant asked to compare and rank products

  • Results used to produce market simulator

    • Predict new product consumer choice


Conjoint analysis13 l.jpg
Conjoint Analysis

  • Administered via internet

  • Participants compared two products

    • Twenty times

  • Products consist of;

    • Acceleration Time

    • Price

    • Fuel Economy

    • Drivetrain

    • Engine Power








Attribute importance l.jpg
Attribute Importance

Attribute Importance = (Attribute Utility Rage / Total Attribute Utility Range) x 100%


Market simulator l.jpg
Market Simulator

  • Uses individual results

    • Every participant simulated

  • Compares two products

    • Outputs comparative market share

    • Compare against current product

  • Leads to product price sensitivity




Hybrid architectures l.jpg
Hybrid Architectures

  • Series

  • Parallel

  • Combined (Series-Parallel)

  • Powersplit

  • Four Wheel Drive Combined

    • Increase available engine torque

    • Drive through gear changes

    • Added traction


Powersplit l.jpg
Powersplit

  • Powersplit hybrid

    • Usually based around planetary gear set

    • Requires major modification of transmission

  • Does not fulfil project requirements


Model design l.jpg
Model Design

  • Models acceleration event (0-60mph)

  • Front engine – rear wheel drive layout

    • Engine and clutch model, with 1st order engine lag, flywheel and clutch inertia

    • Drivetrain, transmission and final drive, connected by flexible shafts, modelled as spring/dampers.

    • Non linear tyre model with longitudinal slip

    • Full body vehicle model with air resistance and angle of inclination

    • Weight transfer between front and rear axles

    • Driver model, designed to achieve maximum acceleration

    • Three electric motors connected to the engine, rear axle and front axle



Architecture selection l.jpg
Architecture Selection

  • Run with same motor specifications

    • 75kW, 240Nm, 59kg, 8000rpm max speed

    • Geared to reach 120mph

  • Acceleration run, 0 - 60mph

  • Simulated in new model Westfield

    • 1.6l Turbo Petrol Engine

    • Launched at Autosport International in January




Architecture selection36 l.jpg
Architecture Selection

  • Architectures use 1,2 or three motor sets.

    • Additional motor sets add cost

  • Hybridisation Factor

    • HF = PEM/(PEM+PICE)

  • Benefit Factor

    • BF = (1-(THYBRID/TSTANDARD))/HF

      • (P = Power (kW), T= 0 – 60mph Time (s))



Battery pack power l.jpg
Battery Pack Power

  • Battery weight to be a minimum

    • Vehicle dynamics

  • Energy storage to be a minimum

    • Too much will be detrimental to enjoyment

  • Cost to be low

    • Batteries represent majority of system cost

  • Power should be high

    • How low can the battery pack power be?



Conclusions l.jpg
Conclusions

  • 2 Surveys carried out

    • Shown market potential for hybrid racing car

  • Through the road hybrid architecture

    • Maximum acceleration increased by 30%

    • Give best performance increase for cost

  • Battery pack can be decreased by 30%

    • Only 3.3% increase in acceleration time
