The energy management strategy (EMS) for a plugin hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is proposed based on the driving cycle model and dynamic programming (DP) algorithm. A driving cycle model is constructed by collecting and processing the driving data of a certain school bus. The state of charge (SOC) profile can be obtained by the DP algorithm for the whole driving cycle. In order to optimize the energy management strategy in the hybrid power system, the optimal motor torque control sequence can be calculated using the DP algorithm for the segments between the traffic intersections. Compared with the traditional charge depleting-charge sustaining (CDCS) strategy, the test results on the ADVISOR platform show a significant improvement in fuel consumption using the EMS proposed in this paper.
