2:10 PM Increasing the share of electric vehicles on the market by using thermal recuperating strategies

  • Biggest problem of electromobility: limited range, high initial cost
  • Heating in summer and cooling in winter can reduce maximum driving range by 50%
  • Solution: increase energy efficiency; maximize range of existing vehicles by means of thermal recuperating strategies
  • Introduction to different thermal recuperation strategies
  • Analysis and evaluation of the impact of the proposed strategies using entire vehicle simulation
