The analysis in this report demonstrates that in the right circumstances EVs
can provide a clear benefit for business now. If the ‘sweet spots’ are carefully
identified, financial benefits and early commercial advantage will flow.
Performance modelling and simulation of a hybrid electric scooter
Wai Kean Yap, Vishy Karri
Int. J. of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles
2009 Vol.2, No.1 pp 43-63
This paper presents a model developed on the Matlab/Simulink platform for the operation and optimisation of a scooter's hybrid powertrain. The model, which is a parallel
hybrid structure, is powered by a two-stroke Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) coupled with an electric hub motor to make up the scooter's propulsion unit.
The model was built and the simulation results are shown. The developed multi-mode Matlab/Simulink hybrid electric scooter model demonstrates that the petrol and energy costs are significantly reduced compared to traditional petrol and electric scooters. The costs were reduced per every 100 km compared to traditional petrol and electric scooters. Research showed that to achieve higher distances with lower petrol consumption, a hybrid scooter is more reliable. The qualitative trends showed that the multi-mode approach minimises petrol consumption by minimising the usage of the ICE. This was examined on the Standard European Driving Cycle (ECE-15) driving cycle. In this paper, it is argued that this multimode hybrid approach reduces cost compared with petrol scooters and increases the distance travelled compared with pure electric scooters.

Advanced Automotive & Industrial Battery Conference
For 17 years the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference has attracted international thought leaders and battery technologists from major
automobile makers and their suppliers to discuss key issues impacting the technology and market of advanced vehicles and the batteries that
will power them. As the electric vehicle market expands amid increasing pressure from looming regulatory deadlines, the need to develop batteries
with better performance and lower cost has never been stronger. AABC provides an invaluable opportunity to delve into these challenges,
discuss breakthroughs and best practices, and learn from the researchers and engineers who are bringing these technologies forward to consumers.

30 kW Power Boost System for Drive Trains for Electric Vehicles Based on Supercapacitor Technologies
In electric and fuel cell vehicles there is a need to boost the battery power during fast changes in
The goal is to design, dimension and construct a power boost system for the drive trains in electric
vehicles, by utilizing supercapacitor technology. The system should consist of a supercapacitor
bank and a converter, and be designed for use in the new Think electric vehicle. Each part of the
converter should be dimensioned according to information provided by Think Technology.
The master thesis will be limited to the design, dimensioning and construction of the power boost
system, while the implementation, interfacing and control of power sharing will not been dealt
