The gradual decline of oil reserves and the increasing demand for energy have resulted in automotive manufacturers developing new environmentally friendly vehicles such as electric and hybrid vehicles. Selection of the correct hybrid configuration for a given driving condition is very important since it affects the performance of the vehicle and its fuel economy. This paper focuses on a detailed parametric analysis of a Series Hybrid Electric vehicle (SHEV). The objective of this paper was to develop a SHEV powertrain by initial parameter matching and component sizing, followed by its optimization for given design constraints. This involved study and calculation of components power specifications based on vehicle dynamics. Initial parameterization was followed by optimization to meet the design objective. The simulation of the optimized SHEV was done in the software ADVISOR for an Indian driving cycle (IDC). Based on the simulation results, an optimum range of the powertrain components was established.
