Design and Evaluation of Electric Bus Systems for Metropolitan Cities

by   Unnikrishnan Menon, et al.

Over the past decade, most of the metropolitan cities across the world have been witnessing a degrading trend in air quality index. Exhaust emission data observations show that promotion of public transport could be a potential way out of this gridlock. Due to environmental concerns, numerous public transport authorities harbor a great interest in introducing zero emission electric buses. A shift from conventional diesel buses to electric buses comes with several benefits in terms of reduction in local pollution, noise, and fuel consumption. This paper proposes the relevant vehicle technologies, powertrain, and charging systems, which, in combination, provides a comprehensive methodology to design an Electric Bus that can be deployed in metropolitan cities to mitigate emission concerns.
