Abstract

See full text

When an abnormality except for a temperature abnormality of a travel-purpose battery is detected, a battery ECU 260 of the present invention renders a system main relay to make a change to a battery-less travel mode while using a battery cooling fan to cool the travel-purpose battery. When a temperature abnormality of the travel-purpose battery is still detected, a system-off command signal is output to cause the hybrid vehicle to become unable to travel. In this way, limp home mode and system shutoff of the hybrid vehicle can be surely implemented even in the case where an abnormality occurs to the travel-purpose battery.
