Rising fuel prices and fast depletion of energy resources have led to an increasing interest in green technology. Hybrid vehicles due to their ability to draw power from multiple energy sources are a preferred option. Although the components such as supercapacitors, batteries, internal combustion engine, or a fuel cell, generally needed to realize a hybrid topology are known, the topology of their arrangement and realization by interchanging the components and combining different power sources, needs to be studied. In this paper, various hybrid powertrain configurations in combination with different storage elements are compared and a suitable control and power management strategy for a multi-power source powertrain system is implemented using a scalable test rig. In order to validate the component design and topology, Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) tests are carried out with the help of an emulator set-up.
