Abstract: The emissions from the internal combustion (IC) engine vehicle causes pollution which increases the carbon footprints in the environment which causes global warming. In ICE vehicle only 20 % of the energy produced by it is used to run the vehicle and rest 80 % of it get wasted. The emerging technology of Hybrid Electric vehicle (HEV) has become the feasible solution for the modern world as it lessens the carbon emission and augments the fuel performance of vehicle. The role of power electronic converters is very crucial in designing the configuration of HEVs. The performance of the converter is employed for realizing the features of electric traction motor drive. The paper analyses the performance of a small car powered by gasoline based internal combustion engine, series hybrid electric vehicle (SHEV) and parallel hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) drive train. The simulation has been performed on Advanced Vehicle Simulator (ADVISOR) platform. Different types of HEVs configuration has been analyzed by considering three different driving schedules such as CYC_UDDS, CYC_NEDC and CYC_URBAN_INDIA. The gradability and acceleration test has also been carried out in all category of test vehicles and result is demonstrated by examining vehicle emission at each driving cycle.
