Energy Management Strategies for hybrid powertrains control the power split, between the engine and electric motor, of a hybrid vehicle, with fuel consumption or emission minimization as objective. Optimal control theory can be applied to rewrite the optimization problem to an optimization independent of time. Estimation of the Lagrange parameter, e.g., by feedback on the battery State-Of-Charge (SOC), can be used to arrive at a real-time implementable strategy. Nevertheless, it is still required to solve a nonconvex optimization problem with limited onboard computational power. This paper suggests to solve this optimization problem, offline, for different values of the Lagrange parameter, crankshaft rotational speed, and torque request. The resulting strategy is evaluated with simulations of a hybrid distribution truck on two different velocity trajectories. The influence of several control parameters is investigated also. © 2010 IFAC.
