Special Session #10: IEEE VTS Motor Vehicles Challenge – Sizing and Energy Management of Hybrid Dual-Energy Storage System for Electric Vehicles

Co-Organizer: Thanh Vo-Duy, Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam
Co-Organizer: Jonathan Brembeck, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Germany
Co-Organizer: Jakub Tobolář, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Germany

Call For Papers

Recently, the typical propulsion system of a commercial electric vehicle (EV) in the market consists of an electrical drive system and a battery package. Due to the physical limitation, the battery cannot fully exploit the advantages of the traction motor, such as regenerative braking or high torque generation. Therefore, other types of energy sources are added to compensate for the weakness of the battery, such as supercapacitor (SC) or fuel cell, or both. As the result, two fundamental issues arise, including (i) the sizing of an appropriate hybrid energy storage system (H-ESS), and (ii) the energy management of the designed H-ESS.

Following the IEEE VTS Motor Vehicles Challenge 2022, this special session deals with the coupling issue between optimization in the design of H-ESS and optimal control for an energy management system for hybrid battery – supercapacitor EV. Not only the participants of the Challenge but also the interested researchers on the related topics are welcome to submit their works to the special session.


Thanh Vo-Duy

Bio: Thanh Vo-Duy (Member, IEEE) received M.S. degree in Automation Engineering and Ph.D. in Control Engineering and Automation from Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Hanoi, Vietnam in 2007 and 2019, respectively. From 2005 to 2006, he was a researcher on robotics with Meijo University, Japan. Since 2006, he has been a lecturer with the Department of Industrial Automation, School of Electrical Engineering, HUST. He has also worked as a researcher with Control

Techniques and Innovation (CTI) Laboratory for Electric Vehicles (EVs) since 2009. He was the chair of the Conference Office and the coordinator of the IEEE Vehicle Power and Propulsion Conference (VPPC) 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam. Recently, he is a member of the VPP Technical Committee. His research interests include embedded systems, control of electric vehicles, control of power electronics and electric drives, system modeling, and simulation.

Dr. Vo-Duy was a recipient of the Best Paper Award of the IEEE VPPC 2018 in Chicago, IL, USA. He also was a recipient of Contribution Recognition in organizing IEEE VPPC 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam.


Jonathan Brembeck

Bio: Jonathan Brembeck received his Dipl.-Ing. (M.Sc.) degree in Mechanical Enginering (System Control and Electoronics/Informatics) and his Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.) in Electrical Engineering from Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany, in 2008 and 2018, respectively.

He started his carrer as an simulation engineer in the automotive industry. In 2009 he changed to the German Aerospace Center (German NASA equivalent) as a researcher and project leader for robotic electro-mobility ROboMObil. His research interests are the modeling of multiphysical systems, especially for electro mobility and the nonlinear state estimation and control for autonomous vehicles. Since 2014 he has been holding the position as head of Department Vehicle System Dynamics of the Institute of System Dynamics and Control. In 2018 he started as a lecturer at the Technical University of Munich for the simulation of mechatronic systems in particular modeling of electric vehicles.

Dr. Brembeck Jonathan received the eCarTec Award 2012 (Bavarian national award for elctro mobility) for the ROboMObil concept car and was awarded European Satellite Navigation Competition – Special Topic Winner 2011


Jakub Tobolář

Bio: Jakub Tobolář received M.Sc. in Mechanical Enginering (automotive) and Ph.D. in the same discipline from Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague, Czech Republic, in 1996 and 2005, respectively.

Since 1999, he is with German Aerospace Center (DLR), Institute of System Dynamics and Control and focus his research activity on development, modeling and simulation of novel vehicle chassis concepts. He was a member of Program Committee of several Modelica Conferences.
