Controller development for Configurable Hybrid Electric Learning Module (CHELM)

Designed a control module (with 7 sub-level controllers) for CHELM applying model-based embedded control system design approach using Simulink and Stateflow.

The controller generates control signals for engine controller and the motor controller, such as engine and motor on/off, engine state control, and the amount of torque the engine and motor should provide. Remote Electronic Throttle Control via CAN

Developed a remote electronic throttle feedback position control system via CAN communication using two ECUs.

Performed real-time calibration of the accelerator pedal and throttle body along with the controller remotely via CAN

Supervised and examined the CAN data fields using CANKing and MotoTune. Intelligent Cruise Control Design

To maintain vehicle velocity and headway (distance to follow from the vehicle ahead), two controllers were designed.

An intelligent controller was developed for seamless transition from velocity control to headway control and vice-versa, depending on the speed and the distance of the vehicle ahead Performance claim validation and battery sizing for Tesla Roadster

Created and tested EV driveline model for Tesla Roadster in Simulink and verified 0-60 mph < 2 secs.

Performance analysis results – top speed: 246 mph, mile: 9.68 sec

Assumptions – target coefficients same as Ferrari GT488, gear ratio: 9.73 (Tesla Model X P100D) Active Suspension Design

Designed an active suspension system using LQR method for generating a state feedback controller.

An observer was modeled to estimate the unmeasurable states of the system for different inputs. EV powertrain performance analysis in accordance with regulatory drive cycles and regenerative braking test

Designed an EV model to analyze performance parameters in compliance with regulatory drive cycles in Simulink.

For regenerative braking test, formulated a downhill test and calculated the energy regenerated to be around 4%.

Other parameter studied – top speed, armature current, power loss, battery current, duty cycle and battery SOC. LEADERSHIP AND INVOLVEMENT

Led a cross functional team, organized technical and promotional events for Ricardo toolchain.

Served as Corporal at National Cadet Corps for two years.
