The six-driven-wheel Electric Propulsion Demonstrator (DPE 6 × 6) is a military hybrid vehicle. Due to reliability demands, high redundancy is required, and the architecture is quite complex. A simulation model of this vehicle is proposed in this paper. The simulation model must allow the analysis of various power flows of the system. Moreover, this model has to be used to develop an efficient energy-management strategy. For these reasons, a graphical description [energetic macroscopic representation (EMR)] is used to develop the model in a systemic approach. The simulation model is, thus, described and validated from experimental results.
