1. An electric service brake system (1) for a vehicle comprising
a) at least one electric service brake device (2) wherein a service brake force is generated by an electric service brake actuator (3) and
b) a capacitor-based power source (9) which
ba) is formed by or comprises a capacitor and
bb) supplies electric power to the service electric brake actuator (3),
c) a recharging power source (32), the recharging power source, the capacitor-based power source and the electric service brake device being connected in series in the aforementioned order during normal operation,
d) at least one control device comprising control logic for controlling a flow of electric energy from the recharging power source (32) to the capacitor-based power source (9),
e) a brake actuation mode wherein the electric service brake device (2) is controlled such that a desired brake force is generated, an increasing brake force is generated and/or a previously generated brake force is upheld,
f) wherein the brake actuation mode comprises
fa) a holding sub-mode wherein a locking, fixing or holding device is actuated which keeps a previously generated service brake force of the electric service brake device (2) constant and wherein the service brake device (2) is energized on a reduced energization level and
fb) a brake force control sub-mode wherein the service brake force is controlled on the basis of an actual service brake force demand.
