  • Publication number: 20220144246
    Abstract: When a scheduled traveling route is changed during travelling of an electrical vehicle, a management ECU of the electrical vehicle maintains control of a travelling mode based on a travelling plan created based on the scheduled traveling route before the change, in accordance with a result of comparison between first attribute information and second attribute information, the first attribute information indicating an attribute of at least one section, which is located within a predetermined distance from a section in which the electrical vehicle is located and located in a vehicle travelling direction, of the scheduled traveling route before the change, the second attribute information indicating an attribute of at least one section, which is located within a predetermined distance from a section in which the electrical vehicle is located and located in a vehicle travelling direction, of the scheduled traveling route after the change.

  • Publication number: 20220055606
    Abstract: A control device of a vehicle includes a discharge control unit configured to, in a case where a regenerative section is included in a scheduled traveling route of the vehicle, perform a discharge control for increasing a discharge amount of a power storage device as compared with a case where the regenerative section is not included in the scheduled traveling route. The discharge control unit is configured to determine a target discharge electric power amount, which is a target value to be discharged before the vehicle reaches a start point of the regenerative section, based on a predicted regenerative electric power amount that is capable of being generated in the regenerative section, and perform the discharge control based on the target discharge electric power amount and a parameter that changes in accordance with a distance from the vehicle to the start point.

  • Publication number: 20220055607
    Abstract: A control device of a vehicle includes a discharge control unit. The discharge control unit, in a case where a plurality of regenerative sections are included in a scheduled traveling route, extracts a first regenerative section on a vehicle side, a second regenerative section closest to the first regenerative section, and a dischargeable section between the first regenerative section and the second regenerative section. The discharge control unit, in a case where a predicted regenerative electric power amount in the first regenerative section is greater than a predicted discharge electric power amount in the dischargeable section, sets a section obtained by merging the first regenerative section, the second regenerative section, and the dischargeable section as a control target section, and performs the discharge control based on a remaining capacity of a power storage device and a predicted regenerative electric power amount in the control target section.
