minimum fuel

minimum fuel

i. The minimum quantity of fuel with which an aircraft may be authorized to fly.
ii. When informing ATC (air traffic control), it means that the aircraft's fuel supply has reached a state where, upon reaching the destination, it can accept little or no delay. Although this is not an emergency situation, any delay is likely to result in an emergency. It is no more than the quantity of fuel necessary for 30 min operation at the rated maximum continuous power.
iii. The minimum fuel specified for the weight and the balance to be able to have the center of gravity within a permissible range.

Thus, the overall sensitivity was relatively low for this fuel sample at minimum fuel levels that would be realistic for vehicles.
In this paper, a real-time control strategy with ECMS for a PHEV is proposed, which is based on a new method for evaluating the equivalent factor between fuel and electrical energy in order to regulate SOC at a constant reference point with the minimum fuel consumption simultaneously.
