Mercedes-Benz energy management system for hybrids based on predicted topology

The Intelligent HYBRID system continually monitors the road topography Mercedes-Benz has developed an energy management system for hybrid vehicles to efficiently recoup energy and optimise benefits of the electric motor. The Intelligent HYBRID system features in the S-Class since 2013 and shortly the C-Class will be equipped with the same technology. The system ensures that the battery has enough charge to capitalise on recuperation offered by route and terrain. The system is designed to continually monitor the topography using the navigation system to calculate the potential of recouping energy during the travel. The information is then processed by the Central Powertrain Controller (CPC), which initiates the steps to lower the battery charge to be in line with the situation before a downhill stretch is reached by expanding all-electric boost periods. This is because, acc...
