© 2019 Elsevier Ltd A dual input clutchless transmission system based on automated manual transmission (AMT) structure is developed for pure electric vehicles. An energy management strategy (EMS) is proposed to determine the power distribution between two motors and the optimal gear state. A mathematical model is built to minimize the energy consumption of the motors at each instant based on the motor efficiency maps. However, the proposed EMS in line with other energy-oriented strategies often result in excessive gear shifts and compromised drivability. To avoid the undesired gear shift, a shifting stabilizer is built in the EMS objective function to improve the shift quality. Accordingly, to achieve a balance between the energy consumption and the drivability, a multi-objective optimization method is adopted to reduce the unnecessary shift events while minimizing energy consumption. Two driving cycles representing typical daily driving conditions are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed system in terms of energy efficiency and shifting stability.
