  • Patent number: 11142184
    Abstract: A method for operating a hybrid drive apparatus for a motor vehicle, having an exhaust-gas-producing internal combustion engine and an electric motor. The internal combustion engine and the electric motor, respectively alone or at least sometimes jointly, provide a drive torque, wherein, when a start threshold value is exceeded by a demand variable. The internal combustion engine is started and the drive torque is at least partially generated by the internal combustion engine, and, when a stop threshold value is not met by the demand variable, the internal combustion engine is stopped and the drive torque is generated solely by means of the electric motor.

  • Patent number: 10744997
    Abstract: A method for operating a motor vehicle. To determine a total operating strategy, predictive basic data describing the operation of the motor vehicle for a known route is determined from input data comprising route data. The operating strategies of the motor vehicle are evaluated based on the predictive basic data in order to determine the total operating strategy. The motor vehicle is then operated according to the total operating strategy. To determine the basic data, a performance profile is determined based on the total required performance of the vehicle throughout the route. The route is divided into route sections, each assigned characterizing performance information. Successive route sections are combined into a common segment when at least one similarity criterion is satisfied comparing the performance information of the route sections. Thereafter, the segments are provided with this assigned total performance information associated with the total performance information.

  • Patent number: 10683783
    Abstract: A method for operating a motor vehicle provided with a hybrid drive apparatus. The hybrid drive device is equipped with an internal combustion engine that can be operated with a fuel, as well as with an electric engine, and a lubricant is supplied at least intermittently to the internal combustion engine. At the same time, a lubricant dilution value is determined with a dilution of the lubricant so that the internal combustion engine is started when a first threshold value is exceeded by the lubricant dilution value, and when the motor vehicle is located on a regeneration route of an anticipated driving route of the motor vehicle and the regeneration route is sufficient to reduce the lubricant dilution value by a specified value.

  • Patent number: 10525965
    Abstract: A method for calculating in advance the consumption of a motor vehicle provided with at least one drive motor in a drivetrain, wherein the power levels of differentiated predicted energies describing the predicted operation of the motor vehicle, which are required to complete a route that is known in advance and include input data obtained from the route data, are determined, wherein the predicted energies are assigned in dependence on the associated power levels and at least one used operating strategy proportionally to the different efficiency models of the drive train, and while using the efficiency model from the predicted energy components associated with the efficiency model, the energy used from an associated energy storage device is determined as consumption or as a variable determining consumption.

  • Patent number: 10407049
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a process for route-dependent control of an energy storage device of an at least partially electrically operated motor vehicle, for example a mild-hybrid passenger vehicle, which is implemented by a charge state control device. In this process, said device receives at least one information-containing data value, which relates to a driving situation to be expected on a route section of a driving route. A prediction of the energy requirement of a first device of an onboard network on the route section takes place using the information received. When a predetermined lower threshold value of the predicted energy requirement of the first device is not met, a control signal is generated that causes an energy quantity of an energy reserve of the energy storage device reserved for the first device of the onboard network to be allocated at least partially to a second device of the onboard network.

  • Patent number: 10112604
    Abstract: A method for operating a motor vehicle is disclosed. The motor vehicle is provided with a hybrid drive device having an electric machine, an internal combustion engine and a particle filter associated with the internal combustion engine, wherein the internal combustion engine is operated temporarily for regenerating the particle filter. In a first operating mode, the regeneration is only started when it is determined by a navigation device that an electric driving region to be driven through lies ahead, in which region an operation of the internal combustion engine and/or the regeneration of the particle filter is not desired.

  • Patent number: 10081352
    Abstract: A method is provided for operating a navigation system of a hybrid motor vehicle having a combustion engine and an electric motor that is fed from an associated battery. In this method, an efficiency route enabling a maximum utilization of the electric motor is determined by the navigation system, where at least one item of efficiency information is considered in the determination of the efficiency route. The efficiency information is provided dynamically by a drive control device of the motor vehicle and is dependent on the current operating state and/or the current operating prediction.
