The project "Bizzarrini P538 EcoTarga" has been developed by the DIET department of "Sapienza" University of Rome. The project consisted in the design and construction of a replica of a historic Italyn car, updated with modern parallel hybrid-type plug-in technologies, and a Lithium-polymer battery storage system. The research aimed at undertaking practical experimentation on parallel hybrid vehicles, with a special focus on the problems related to the construction and optimization of hybrid propulsion systems. For these reasons special focus are dedicated to describe the layout of the prototype and some technical data of the devices used in the project, and the measurement campaign achieved on the tested storate system. Finally the hybrid parallel control strategy was obtained, in first, with a simulation model by coupling the simulation software vehicle dynamics GT-Drive with the Matlab/Simulink environment, to optimize control strategy of the prototype. and then used to implement the control system in to CompactRio CPU, to manage the load requests to the motor and engine. © 2012 IEEE.
