Research on Deep Reinforcement Learning-based Energy Management Strategies of Hybrid Electric Vehicles

It is significant for the promotion of fuel cell hybrid vehicles to design a reasonable energy management strategy and coordinate the power output between different power sources, so as to meet the vehicles dynamic demand, realize the energy saving and the emission reduction, and extend the lifetime of the fuel cell and the battery. Currently, energy management strategies can be divided into rule-based strategies and optimization-based strategies. The former has good real-time performance, but the control effect should be further improved; the latter has better control effect, but it is difficult to be applied in real time. In addition, for fuel cell hybrid vehicles, existing energy management strategies do not fully consider the fuel cell lifetime improvement. This project proposes a fuel cell lifetime-enhancing energy management strategy for fuel cell hybrid electric vehicles based on reinforcement learning and deep reinforcement learning, in which the stability and the calculation efficiency of the strategies are improved through various algorithm skills. A lifetime decay model of fuel cells is established to quantitatively evaluate the fuel cell lifetime-enhancing effect of the strategies. Simulation results show that the proposed strategy has the outstanding performance in terms of the algorithm convergence, the fuel economy, the fuel cell lifetime-enhancement, and the adaptability to different driving cycles. The real-time performance and control performance of the strategies are well considered at the same time, and this is helpful for the practical application and popularization.
