Hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV) has been the subject of intensive research as a field of application of optimal control in the past decade. In particular, researchers have proven that energy management (or supervisory control) can be effectively designed using optimal control-based techniques (Guzzella and Sciarretta, Vehicle Propulsion Systems. Introduction to Modeling and Optimization. Springer, Berlin, 2013. Such methods have been applied to charge-sustaining hybrids implementing various architecture, as well as, more recently, to plug-in hybrids (Stockar et al. IEEE Trans Vehr Technol, 60(7):2949–2962, 2011; Sivertsson 2012). Plug-in hybrids (PHEV) are characterized by much higher battery capacities and energies than charge-sustaining hybrids, thus the proper description of battery behavior plays an even more fundamental role in energy management design.
