This paper describes how modeling and simulation tools are being developed and used to support the design of hybrid electric drive (HED) for future military ground vehicles. The component and controls models described are being developed in a modular form such that they can be used to construct subsystem level models of various proposed HED architectures with a consistent, high level of fidelity. The objective models must predict system performance adequately to support the making of engineering design decisions concerning architecture, control algorithms and component sizing. A brief introduction to the challenges associated with the design of a hybrid electric drive for future military ground vehicles is provided.
