This paper proposes a regenerative braking control strategy based on real-time dynamic loading (RTDL) of wheels. Based on the nonlinear relationship between a spring’s resilience and displacement, this paper establishes 7-degrees of freedom (DOF) full vehicle model with nonlinear suspension. Then, a method based on suspension deformation is devised to calculate the wheels’ dynamic load, and RTDL is used to calculate the braking force of the front and rear wheels. With the braking intensity and the battery state of charge (SOC) as input variables and the desired regenerative braking force as an output variable, we establish a regenerative braking control strategy based on RTDL and simulate it in ADVISOR software. Results show that the designed control strategy effectively improves the regenerative braking energy recovery efficiency by assuring braking stability, and verifies the rationality and feasibility of the proposed control strategy.
