Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) improvements in fuel economy and emissions strongly depend on the energy management strategy. The control of an HEV with minimum fuel consumption and emissions is a global problem and the control action taken at each time instant affects the following. Thus, dynamic programming (DP) is a well-suited technique to find the(More)
