1. An energy charge controller for controlling electrical energy of a vehicle, the energy charge controller comprising:

  • an estimation module comprising;

    a driver behavior judgment unit configured to generate and output a driving mode signal by a vehicle speed signal, an accelerator pedal motion signal and a brake pedal motion signal;

    a charge curve adjustment unit electrically connected to the driver behavior judgment unit for receiving the driving mode signal, wherein the driving mode signal is evaluated to generate a brake charging target datum by the charge curve adjustment unit; and

    an energy charge evaluation unit electrically connected to the charge curve adjustment unit for receiving the brake charging target datum and the vehicle speed, wherein the brake charging target datum and the vehicle speed are evaluated to generate a chargeable braking energy value by the energy charge evaluation unit; and

    a control module electrically connected to the estimation module for receiving the chargeable braking energy value and at least one recoverable storage power value, wherein the control module comprises a control unit and a memory unit, the memory unit is electrically connected to the control unit and stored a plurality of situational conditions, and the control unit is configured to select and output one of the situational conditions to the vehicle by comparing the chargeable braking energy value and the recoverable storage power value.
