The increasing electrification of vehicle powertrains has resulted in complex thermal systems. The performance of the thermal system has a strong impact on the electric range. This paper will discuss different thermal system concepts and the related control strategies to optimise their performance. The control algorithm complexity has increased with multi-variable systems and temperature limits that result in a challenging control problem. This paper will discuss the use of model predictive control and optimal control approaches to develop the control solution for this problem. These techniques have the additional benefit of reducing calibration effort whilst delivering efficiency gains.
