From optimization-based EM to rule-based EM

The role of the supervisory control system (SCS) of a HEV is to determine the power split between multiple sources in a hybrid powertrain. In the past years, many kinds of SCSs have been proposed, which can be generally classified into two kinds, namely, optimization-based and rule-based control strategies. The optimization-based strategies determine the power …

Optimal EM with simultaneous speed optimization

Energy management (EM) strategies are used to decide intelligently on how to provide energy to the total vehicle load from the multiple energy sources involved in HEV powertrains. Traditional approaches can be mainly classified into two types: rule-based and optimization-based methods. However, all these methods have relied on predefined speed profiles, which is not very realistic and is unknown in …
