  1. 1. Finding the optimal speed profile for an electric vehicle using a search algorithm

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Jonas Medin; [2018]
    Keywords : optimal speed profile electric vehicle search algorithm control; Optimal hastighetsprofil elbil bil fordon sökalgoritm algoritm reglerteknik;

    Abstract : This master thesis presents a method to find the optimal speed profile for a dynamic system in the shape of an electric vehicle and any topography using a search algorithm. The search algorithm is capable of considering all the speed choices in a topography presented discretely, in order to find the most energy efficient one. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydraulic hybrids

    University essay from KTH/Fordonsdynamik

    Author : Prithviraj Jaipal; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Conventional IC Engine powertrain layouts in vehicles tend to consume considerable amounts of fuel and generate emissions that are harmful to the environment. Newer technologies have enabled the development of sustainable vehicle layout designs that favor a reduction in the exhaust emissions and energy consumption without compromising the vehicle’s performance.
