This paper introduces the parameter prediction and modelling methods for the traction motor of hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). In the general HEV simulation, the traction motor is mainly defined by efficiency map and torque/speed curve. Therefore, this paper will focus on the prediction of these parameters, which involves the numerical analysis on the motor inductances calculation, iron-loss resistance calculation, and characteristic estimation algorithm and so on. The modelling method is split into tow major parts: configuration of model and composing graphic user interface (GUI). An experiment result will be used to compare with the calculated efficiency map to verify the validity of these methods. In addition, the model construction will be explained by flowcharts. Considering popularity, the MATLAB/Simulink will be used to construct the simulation program. And a GUI will be designed and used to show the simulation results. With the other models of vehicle components, the simulation will be processed in a parallel-type HEV model in an urban road condition (FTP72), and the simulation results will be shown in the end of this paper.
