This paper presents an architectural model for power management in automotive systems. It is based on recent advances in cyber physical and cybernetic control systems. Based upon a previous model of power management, formal interactions in between a hierarchical structure are characterized. In the architecture, strategic decisions allow coordinated adjusting of power management plans as well as local autonomy in subsystem scope.
