The regenerative braking energy recovery system of electric vehicle can effectively improve its mileage. In this paper, we took the front-drive EV as the object to analyze the braking force allocation during its braking process. After considering ECE regulation, the motor peak torque and battery charging power as the main restrictive conditions and combining them with driver braking intensity discrimination characteristics, a new control strategy of regenerative braking force allocation was proposed for the vehicle. Then, simulation model was established on the MATLAB/Simulink software platform. At the same time, the initial velocity is 30km/h, 60km/h and 100km/h respectively, and the braking intensity is 0.1 and 0.5 respectively, which were set as simulation conditions. The simulation results of the strategy were compared to that of ideal braking force allocation strategy under the middle braking intensity condition. The results show that this control strategy can effectively achieve the braking energy recovery, and the efficiency at each initial braking speed of low, medium and high speeds is higher than that of ideal braking force allocation strategy.
