The global optimal solutions of energy management of hybrid electric vehicles depend on future driving conditions. This paper investigates a potential real-time methodology to integrate long-horizon preview information for plugin hybrid vehicles. Equivalent Fuel Consumption Minimization Strategy (ECMS) is deployed as an instantaneous real-time minimization strategy with parameters adjusted by estimated future driving conditions and obtained either from Dynamic Programming (DP) or from a global

We show that with estimated future information, substantial reduction in fuel use, up to 13% is possible compared with a rule-based control strategy without any preview. Further improvement of fuel consumption on the order of 1% could be achieved with exact future information. C. Zhang (corresponding author) is with The
