Hybrid vehicles offer several advantages in terms if mileage and fuel economy, however, a comparison with electric vehicles, conventional vehicles, and hybrid vehicles with other forms of energy is required to decide the best options for the future. Also, how these vehicles perform in terms of utility and cost, meeting GHG and fossil fuel usage reduction target needs to be evaluated. There are several differences between a conventional automotive powertrain and a hybrid (engine + battery) powertrain in terms of architecture and a key feature allows engine to operate at its most efficient operating point by utilizing the battery. Hybrid vehicles can be classified based sources of energy, degree of hybridization, arrangement of components, and utilization of energy. Together with optimized design and energy management control, desired objectives in terms of fuel
consumption, emissions, cost, lifetime of components, etc can be addressed. Before developing an energy management control scheme, an overview of driving cycles and computation of energy demand is essential. Energy management strategies can be broadly classified into rule-based and optimization based with the main target of controlling the power split device. Rule based strategies employ expert designed rules to control the power split whereas optimal strategies minimize or maximize an objective function. The performance of energy management strategies can be greatly improved when combined with driving pattern prediction/recognition.
