Thermal design of an electric road system

Abrahamsson, Philip LU and Alaküla, Mats LU (2017) 30th International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition, EVS 2017 2017.
Abstract

Electric road systems (ERS) have the potential to be the next step in charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. To be able to dynamically charge electric vehicles, would not only extend the electric vehicles range but also reduce their need for large battery packs. Despite the relatively high efficiency of the ERS, the generated losses result in a great amount of heat, making the thermal properties important to consider. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the surface temperature of an ERS based on Elonroad's design for different traffic intensities, power levels and length of the ERS.
