Although hybrid-electric vehicles have been studied mainly with the aim of increasing fuel economy, little has been done in order to improve both fuel economy and performance. However, vehicular-dynamic-performance characteristics such as acceleration and climbing ability are of prime importance in military vehicles such as the high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV). This paper concentrates on the models that describe hybridized HMMWV vehicles and the simulation results of those models. Parallel and series configurations have been modeled using the advanced-vehicle-simulator software developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Both a retrofit approach and a constant-power approach have been tested, and the results are compared to the conventional model results. In addition, the effects of using smaller engines than the existing ones in hybrid HMMWV drive trains have been studied, and the results are compared to the data collected from an actual implementation of such a vehicle. Moreover, the integrated-starter/alternator (ISA) configuration has been considered, and the results were encouraging
