This paper presents a novel energy management strategy for a hybridized power source small urban electric vehicle (EV). First, an analysis of load requirements for typical urban driving cycles is presented. Thereafter, the energy and power management issues are addressed for a multisource EV to define an improved management architecture. A dynamically restricted search space strategy coupled with a simulated annealing technique is exploited to accomplish the global optimization of the energy… CONTINUE READING
