In a previous work, the authors optimized the hybrid electric power system for a tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle including a Wankel engine as thermal converter and a permanent magnet electric motor powered by lithium batteries. Startingfrom this optimal configuration, we address here the topic of a refined optimization of the energy management strategy, i.e. the contribution of the battery to the required power in each segment of the flight. The Equivalent Consumption Minimization Strategy (ECMS) was chosen with the goal of minimizing fuel consumption while fully depleting the energy stored in the battery from the beginning to the end of each mission.
