Abstract : Interest in nonpetroleum fueled ground vehicles led Stafford to develop the computer code, Electric Vehicle Simulation (EVSIM). EVSIM was designed to predict the performance of current electric vehicles or to be used in the design of electric/hybrid vehicles. Before EVSIM could be used, it needed to be verified by comparing its predictions to the results of a vehicle test. It was also desired to improve the code's ability to model several types of Internal Combustion Engines that may be used in hybrid vehicles. The approach taken was to test the components of the hybrid vehicle separately prior to testing the whole vehicle. This was done to verify separate sections of EVSIM prior to a systems run. The results of these comparisons and the system comparison are included with recommended changes to EVSIM.
