The analytical approach can take on the responsibility of minimizing fuel consumption of the HEV and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) through optimal analytical solutions. This chapter analyzes a parallel PHEV with detailed specifications for fuel rate modeling at the beginning. Then based on this mathematical model, the simplified and unified analytical power solutions to the optimization problem (minimizing fuel consumption) are derived. The results show that the fuel economy can be improved definitely for HEVs and PHEVs at the optimal power solutions. This strategy guarantees the optimal solutions for constant battery energy which is the only discussed operation strategy in this chapter since it’s more efficient than the constant engine power strategy.
