Accurate modeling of batteries for plug-in hybrid vehicle applications is of fundamental importance to optimize the operation strategy, extend battery life and improve vehicle performance. Tremblay’s battery model has been specifically designed and validated for electric vehicle applications. Tremblay’s parameter identification method is based on evaluating the three remarkable points manually picked from a manufacturer’s discharge curve. This method is error prone and the resultant discharge curve may deviate significantly from the experimental curve as reported in previous studies. This paper proposes to use a novel quantum-behaved particle swarm optimization (QPSO) parameter estimation technique to estimate the model parameters. The performance of QPSO is compared to that of genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) approaches. The QPSO technique needs less tuning effort than other techniques since it only uses one tuning parameter. Reducing the number of iterations should be a welcome development in most applications areas. Results show that the QPSO parameter estimation technique converges to acceptable solutions with fewer iterations than that obtained by the GA and the PSO approaches.
