Regenerative braking is an effective approach for electric vehicles to extend their driving range. The control strategy of regenerative braking plays an important role in maintaining the vehicle's stability and recovering energy. In this paper, the main properties that have influence on brake energy regeneration are analyzed. Mathematical model of brake energy regenerating electric vehicles is established. By analyzing the charge and discharge characteristics of the battery and motor, a simple regenerative braking strategy is proposed. The strategy takes the braking torque required, the motor available braking torque, and the braking torque limit into account, and it can make the best use of the motor braking torque. Simulation results show higher energy regeneration compared to a parallel strategy when the proposed strategy is adopted.
