This paper shows an effective implementation of the fast charging concept in the electric local public transport context. An electric minibus powered with a lead-acid battery is considered as a case-study. Its traction battery is redesigned using 12 V standard lithium-iron-phosphate modules to benefit from the higher performance of the lithium battery(More)
The paper presents a measurement campaign (electrical, thermal and user comfort) for the performance characterization of energy storage systems in real-world electric bicycles. Specific sensors were added to characterize three vehicles which differ for electric motor, energy storage system size and control strategies. The controller can implement energy(More)
This paper describes the design of the traction battery for the new electric Formula SAE vehicle of the University of Pisa. A model based design methodology extended to the mechanical, electrical and thermal domains was applied to find the best trade-off between the battery weight and the maximum power available at the wheel. The designed battery(More)
