Electrification of city bus traffic : - a simulation study based on data from Linköping

Lindgren, Lars LU (2017)
Abstract (Swedish)
Flexibla och ekonomiska system för eldrift av vägfordon är ett område med aktiv utveckling och forskning.
Denna rapport tillämpar sådana system för drift av stadsbussar i Linköping. En programvara för
simulering och ekonomisk optimering av sådana system har använts och några systemkonstruktioner
presenteras. Programvaran utvecklades i ett tidigare projekt på LTH. De testade systemen skiljer sig i
valet av busslinjer och typen av laddningssystem: busshållplatsladdare, hög effekt busshållplatsladdare
och elväg. Ett försök till realistiska kostnader och resultat uppskattningar av de viktigaste komponenterna
presenteras. Alla bussar antas köra enligt samma tidtabell som i dag. Under vissa antaganden
visar det sig... (More)

visar det sig att dessa system är konkurrenskraftiga jämfört med diesel och gas bussar förutom att de
är tystare och utan lokala föroreningar. Detta resultat är dock osäkert på grund av svårigheten att
förutsäga kostnaden för ny teknik och på grund av andra felkällor som till exempel fel i antagen energiförbrukning. (Less)
Abstract
Flexible and economic systems for electric operation of road vehicles is an area of interest for research
and development. This report applies such systems to the operation of city buses in Linköping. An LTH
developed software for simulations and economic optimizations of such systems is used and a few system
designs are presented. The tested systems differ in selection of bus lines and the type of charging
system: bus stop charger, high power bus stop charger and electric road. An attempt to a realistic cost
and performance estimate of the main components is presented. All buses are assumed to operate
with the same time table as today. Under some of the assumptions these systems are shown to be
cost competitive... (More)

cost competitive to diesel and gas buses in addition to being quieter and without local pollution. This
result is however uncertain due to the difficulty in predicting the cost of new technologies and due to
other sources of error such as error in assumed energy consumption. (Less)
