There is a great potential for significant improvement to be made in energy efficiency and reduction in emissions, fuel use, weight and cost of vehicles through implementing innovative technologies. Many automakers have been making great efforts to develop an alternative vehicle that can offer the best solution in reducing the effects of global warming and oil depletion. Such a vehicle will win quick acceptance in the marketplace because of the current high fuel cost. Recently, the plugin hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) has been identified as one of the most viable technologies to achieve these goals by implementing an optimal energy management system. This paper presents our recent research work on the energy management system for a specific PHEV. The system configuration, analysis, model, control strategy, and simulation results are presented in detail. Recommendations on the directions and areas in which the further research in hybrid vehicle should be aligned are also be included.
