Software Tool for Planning of City Bus Transport Electrification

Science and Traffic Development International Conference, Opatija, Croatia, 2018.
This paper presents a software tool that is intended as a support in simulation, optimization and decision making in the process of planning of city bus transport electrification. It provides techno-economic comparison between fleets of conventional buses and different types of electrified buses. The tool consists of four software modules that are responsible for key steps in providing the final result: (i) module for processing of recorded driving cycle data, (ii) module for simulation of city bus fleets, (iii) module for e-bus fleet charging management optimisation; and (iv) module for conducting the techno-economic analysis itself.
