order to decrease CO2 emissions with respect to the regulations. Therefore, the vehicle is
equipped with a gasoline combustion engine, a high voltage battery and two electric motors. One
electric motor propells the front axle and the other one is connected to the combustion engine to
generate electric power. The control is restricted by customer requirements due to the concept of
A Model-in-the-Loop is created to simulate the control strategy with support of a battery model.
Therefore, the control strategy is optimized in a Matlab/Simulink environment. The simulation
results are compared to tests on the dynamometer rig. The optimization highly depends on the
specific goal function, which can be a global optimization or a local minimum to balance the State
of Charge. Furthermore, customer related drive cycles are taken into account to analyze the
