Environmental assessment of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles using naturalistic drive cycles and vehicle travel patterns: A Michigan case study (html)

Authors: Brandon M. Marshall, Jarod C. Kelly, Tae-Kyung Lee, Gregory A. Keoleian, Zoran Filipi

Publication: Energy Policy
Publisher: Elsevier

Highlights:

  • Travel patterns from survey data are combined with naturalistic drive cycles.
  • More realistic PHEV energy modeling using these synthesized real-world drive cycles.
  • Methodology is demonstrated for PHEVs in Michigan but applicable for other regions.
  • Energy and emissions findings have major implications for PHEV standards and policy.
