We do Transportation Research
The Nebraska Transportation Center (NTC) integrates transportation research, education, and technology transfer programs across the four NU campuses, making it one of the largest university transportation centers in the region. The Mid-America Transportation Center and Midwest Roadside Safety Facility operate under NTC.
Transportation Seminar: Dr. Wei Qiao
December 1, 2023
Real-Time Energy Management for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles generally include battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and fuel cell electric vehicles. Compared with battery technology, fuel cell technology is a promising solution to accelerating electrification and achieving zero-emission in medium-duty vehicles, heavy-duty vehicles, and other segments of vehicles. Each fuel cell electric vehicle relies on an energy management strategy to allocate its demand power within its hybrid energy system efficiently and safely. This seminar will review the existing energy management strategies for fuel cell electric vehicles. Then, this seminar will present a novel adaptive model predictive control-based real-time optimal energy management strategy for fuel cell electric vehicles developed by Dr. Wei Qiao’s group.
