Among the areas of research and development which take a big importance in the field of electrical energy production are the fuel cells and supercapacitors. In this paper, we present a multi-agent structure for energy management in a hybrid electrical vehicle. Our simulation application is conceived and developed to share, in an intelligent and instantaneous way, the demand of the electric power between a PEM fuel cell (Proton Exchanges Membrane) and a pack of supercapacitors. In our hybrid configuration, the fuel cell is the primary energy source; but the pack of supercapacitors is used to answer the demands of the strong powers during the transient regimes. The obtained results show that the multi-agent approach can remedied certain problems bound to the centralized management of hybrid energy.
