This paper presents the result that being obtained by development of Kenyir Lake driving cycle for a plug-in hybrid electric recreational boat (PHERB) powertrain. This research is conducted by using on board measurement techniques; second-by-second driving speed data correlate to time is collected by using global positioning system of the boat along selected route. A combination of batteries and ultracapacitor pack are used for hybrid energy storage system in PHERB powertrain which is good for driving performance and energy efficiency. The developed driving cycle contains a 2294 s speed time series, with a distance of 8.19 km, and an average and a maximum speed of 12.85 km/h and 36.91 km/h, respectively. The characteristics of KL driving cycle are compared with existing standard drive cycles. The results obtained from this analysis are within reasonable range and satisfactory.
