  • Patent number: 10093166
    Abstract: A hybrid vehicle has a first motor/generator mechanically coupled to a drive wheel, a second motor/generator mechanically coupled to an internal combustion engine and a high-power battery that is electrically coupled to the motor/generators. The second motor/generator has a smaller electrical power generation capability than the first motor/generator. While starting the vehicle at a time of insufficient battery capacity required for the EV start, the power generation controller disconnects the first electric motor from the drive wheel, connects the first electric motor to the internal combustion engine, and carries out MG1 idle power generation in which the first electric motor generates power by receiving torque from the internal combustion engine. When the vehicle is stopped at a time of sufficient battery capacity, the power generation controller does not carry out the MG1 idle power generation and keeps the first electric motor mechanically coupled to the drive wheel.

  • Publication number: 20180141464
    Abstract: A starting control device is provided for an electrically driven vehicle having an electric motor and an internal combustion engine as drive sources and a transmission shifts and transmits an output of the electric motor to a drive wheel. The starting control device is configured to suppress an abrupt increase in the rotation of the electric motor at the time of an EV start of the vehicle from a released state of a starting dog clutch. In the electrically driven vehicle, an EV start is carried out by transmitting the output of the first motor/generator (MG1) to the drive wheel via a starting dog clutch that is meshingly engaged. The output of the first motor/generator is limited until the starting dog clutch comes into a meshed state in which the transmission transmits drive power at the time of start from a released state of the starting dog clutch.
