This report documents several approches aim to optimize and to predict the driving range in terms of energy. The compendium of publications obtained from these efforts are included as appendixes of this report. Furthermore, a preliminary experimental study shows that optimization of the vehicle energy consumption can lead to a reduction in energy consumption of 6.94%, […]
In this report, we summarize model development for the purpose of predicting the future power request of an electric vehicle (EV). Two specific electric vehicles are considered; the Voltia eVan and the VDL electric city bus. Both vehicles are used in WP7 of this project for demonstration purposes. D3.3 – Report on power request prediction […]
In this white paper, we will discuss the upcoming questions for thermal management of lithium-ion battery (LIB) packs: Why is it necessary?. Existing technologies. Potential technologies. Pros and cons. D8.14 – White paper. Other deliverables can be found and downloaded from Results / Deliverables page this website.
In this white paper we will discuss the battery management for different types of batteries. Battery management systems are an accepted feature in Li-ion battery applications, but their use with other types of batteries is discussed much less. In this white paper we will discuss whether battery management systems can be useful for other types […]
The report summarizes the work done for the development of different virtual test bench models. The objectives of such model are the capability to model the complete vehicle for different scopes, like energy management purpose or battery management system (BMS) control calibration / validation. D1.3 – Deliverable Report. Other deliverables can be found and downloaded from Results […]
