File Description [top]

The NTIS: National Technical Information Service database comprises summaries of U.S. government-sponsored research, development, and engineering, plus analyses prepared by federal agencies, their contractors, or grantees. It is the means through which unclassified, publicly available, unlimited distribution reports are made available for sale from agencies such as NASA, DOD, DOE, HUD, DOT, Department of Commerce, and some 240 other agencies. Additionally, some state and local government agencies contribute summaries of their reports to the database. NTIS is the lead U.S. Goverment agency for cooperation in international technical information exchange, and receives information from the National Aerospace Laboratory in Japan, Micromedia in Canada, among others.

The fulltext for some records are available via DialogLink 5, DialogSelect, or DialogWeb. Click on "Check for PDF download availability and purchase".

ONTAP® NTIS, File 206, is available for training and contains records from January through June 1987 from File 6.

  /AB  The goal of this research was to develop computer-based logic algorithms and build 
    them into SmartHEV, a series hybrid electric vehicle software design program. 
    Computer-based logic algorithms were developed to improve the success and rate of 
    convergence of systems of equations as well as prevent systems of equations from 
    being improperly defined during the unknown variable identification process. The 
    system of equations that governs the operation of a series hybrid electric vehicle 
    is derived from the road load power equation. SmartHEV is the result of combining 
    the computer-based logic algorithms with the governing equations that describe 
    the performance of a series hybrid electric vehicle. In SmartHEV, any variable can 
    be specified as unknown, unlike most vehicle programs that determine vehicle 
    performance using only one set of unknown variables. This added flexibility can 
    result in a more complicated system to solve; however the computer-based logic 
    algorithms improve convergence properties such that there is little to no added 
    expense in solution time. SmartHEV is a flexible and fast software program that 
    is to be used by design engineers for the analysis of series hybrid electric vehicles.
