Abstract: This work focuses on modelling of an electro-hydraulic brake system for an extended range electric vehicle equipped with axle motors, and proposing an optimal braking strategy which utilises a two-layer split of braking action such that the desired braking force is first distributed to the front and rear axles in order to track the ideal brake force distribution factor and, then, to the electro-hydraulic friction brakes and electric motors in order to maximise energy recuperation. With simulation results, it is shown that the proposed regenerative braking strategy achieves the dual objective of ensuring a good dynamic performance and optimal energy recovery.
