. In order to improve the energy efficiency of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, it is important to design a suitable regenerative braking strategy. There are many control strategies that have been developed and presented for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Most of them are aimed to energy flow management, and seldom involves regenerative braking control. In this paper, a regenerative braking strategy based on multi-lookup table method is proposed for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Decelerations are introduced as the index of Table Selector, so braking force distribution coefficients can be flexibly adjusted using the proposed strategy. Finally, the simulation results show the validity of the novel strategy.
