Overview of benchmark model

This paper proposes a practical method for improving fuel consumption of hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) using a sequential approximate optimization. In particular, a new energy management is developed with four design variables. The numerical simulation of HEV is so expensive that a sequential approximate optimization using the radial basis function network is adopted. Numerical result showed that the proposed energy management significantly improves the fuel consumption of HEV.
