Understanding Your Vehicle Energy Requirements - Vehicle Energy Mapping

When transitioning from an IC engine to an electric prime mover understanding the energy consumption of your vehicle becomes critically important. OEM need to not only understand the peak energy consumption but also the normial consumption during an average work cycle. This information will drive the system architecture and the component sizing. In many cases, this information is not readily available to the OEM's and OEM's have a difficult time determine it. This presentation will provide insigt to the importance of this data, the process of obtaining it and using the data to drive vehicle design.
