Abstract

See full text

Methods and systems are provided for an on-board electrical system for a motor vehicle that includes one or more power sources and an electrical subsystem with a switch that can be actuated to selectively bypass a DC/DC converter and a storage device, responsive to electrical parameters such as the power demand of high-power consumers. In one example, when high-power consumers have low and constant power requirements, the switch may be positioned to bridge the DC/DC converter and storage device. Further, the method includes selectively controlling the power source in order to meet peak power demands with the power source operating at the greatest efficiency for the given operating conditions.
