Series hybrid electric vehicles (SHEVs) use an electric generator together with battery pack to feed the vehicle traction system. Control system of a hybrid vehicle has a fundamental role in its drivability and performance. Therefore, satisfying the drivers demand while optimizing the power-train efficiency is the key goal in designing the control strategy. An optimization based control strategy for SHEVs has been proposed in order to optimize power-train efficiency while taking the minimization of the losses caused by reducing the battery life into account. Simulation results verify the proposed method.
