The electrical vehicle energy management can be expressed as a Bang-Bang optimal control problem. In this work, we discuss on a new formulation and about the way to approximate this optimal control problem of Bang-Bang type via a discretization technique associated with a Branch-and-Bound algorithm. The problem that we focus on, is the minimization of the energy consumption of an electrical vehicle achievable on a given driving cycle. Some numerical experiments validates our methodology.
