Control system for the DNV GL Fuel Fighter Prototype and the DNV GL Fuel Fighter UrbanConcept
In this report I present my work developing the main control unit in the two DNV GL Fuel Fighter cars that raced in Shell Eco-marathon 2014. The objective of the Shell Eco-marathon is to race a set distance using as little energy as possible, and my focus has been on giving the driver the tools and information to run the car in an energy efficient manner. I explored different existing driving strategies, and because of the high power consumption of the motor controller circuit I decided to use the "Pulse and Glide" strategy. This meant the car would accelerate rapidly to maximum speed and then coast with motor and its controller switched off.
