Our Driving cycles deliverable is now available for download. You will now be able to find more and more information of our deliverables both on the deliverables table and on the download section, which will make our results more accessible.
WP2 is defining the boundary conditions for the motor development and tests:
- Identifying measurable Motors’ Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to correspond with the vehicles performances and main equipment’s requirements (Driving Cycle definition) necessary for the development and layout definition of powertrain per application to correspond with the State of the Art.
- Listing vehicle-system’s and all the functional subsystems’ components needed to design and realize the appropriate powertrains to be integrated in the vehicles in order to respond to initial KPI and requirements. Task 2.2 aims at setting a driving cycle in order to test and analyze the vehicle’s and motor’s performances.
Driving cycles have been produced to assess the performance of vehicles in various ways, also in vehicle simulations. More specifically, they will be used in propulsion system simulations to predict performance of motors, transmissions, electric drive systems, batteries, and other components.
Some driving cycles have been derived theoretically, whereas others are direct measurements of a driving pattern deemed representative.
