This paper presents a Proposed Energy Management Strategy (PEMS) for an electric vehicle powered by a   fuel cell generator with a storage system based on a super capacitor. A PEMS is needed for hybrid sources in order to manage the energy flow from different sources to supply the power train. Thus, for simulating the studied system under two driving cycles, the MATLAB/Simulink has been used. The obtained results proved a good efficiency of the developed PEMS by minimizing as possible fuel consumption of the main power source.
