Efficiency is one of the most important issues in automotive powertrain control technology. For modern automotive powertrains such as electrically controller engines and electrified powertrains, on-board optimization of the control strategy in ECU is a feasible and effective way to improving the efficiency. However, the complexity in modeling and uncertainties in practice make it challenging. This talk will present results and experiences in development of automotive powertrain control technology. First, the field of powertrain control, mainly focused on the challenging issues, is briefly overviewed. Then, several case studies will be highlighted that provide solutions to the efficiency optimization by applying on-line learning and optimization techniques, mainly combustion control of IC engine, energy optimization of hybrid electric vehicles, and optimal control under the connected environment. Finally, the talk will be closed with a rough outlook on the control issues in connected EVs and power grid.
