A system and method is disclosed for operating an internal combustion engine disposed in a hybrid vehicle, in which engine operation is selected to provide secondary vehicular functions, such as cabin heating, cabin cooling, and exhaust aftertreatment of exhaust components.
1. A vehicle system comprising:at least two machines capable of being coupled to driving wheels of the vehicle, one of said machines being an internal combustion engine; at least one particulate filter coupled to said engine; and an engine controller operably connected to said machines to determine
1. A vehicle system comprising:at least two machines capable of being coupled to driving wheels of the vehicle, one of said machines being an internal combustion engine; at least one particulate filter coupled to said engine; and an engine controller operably connected to said machines to determine when said particulate filter should be attended to and to determine whether a current engine operating condition is within an acceptable engine operating range which satisfies said particulate filter.
