Fisker's comeback powered by new battery

Automotive design maven Henrik Fisker's new venture might be less about the automobile than the technology that will power it. Fisker's eponymous company, which plans to introduce a sporty upper-end luxury car and other vehicles, is developing a new power (MORE)

How a pinch of salt can improve battery performance

When the MOF is carbonised it transforms into a nano-diatom.

Rsearchers at Queen Mary University of London, University of Cambridge and Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research have discovered how a pinch of salt can be used to drastically improve the performance of batteries. (MORE)



Accelerating the EV transition


In 2017 the UK Government's Air Quality Plan set out a commitment to end the sale of all new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2040, and "for almost every car and van on the road to be a zero emission vehicle by 2050" (Defra 2017). WWF has commissioned Vivid Economics to identify key impacts of moving from a 2040 to a 2030 phase out of conventional cars and vans.

Regenerative braking in electric vehicles with all-wheel drive

Andre Suchaneck; Bo Zhang; Fernando Puente León
Int. J. of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles
2011 Vol.3, No.4 pp pp 340 – 352

Given an all-wheel drive (AWD) electric vehicle, an energy optimal strategy for regenerative braking is presented as an extension to a known front wheel drive (FWD) only strategy. Different types of motors and their power capability are considered. The all-wheel drive and a front wheel drive setup are compared based on simulation of multiple driving cycles (NEDC, FTP75, SFTP, and NYCC). The presented analysis can be used for design of electric vehicles with all-wheel drive system (AWD).

Advanced Automotive & Industrial Battery Conference

The 17th annual AABC event brought together 600 delegates from 20 vehicle OEMs, more than 30 battery manufacturers, and other key representatives of the battery supply chain for stimulating discussions and candid conversations on the future of automotive energy storage and vehicle electrification. AABC will continue to attract international thought leaders and chief 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 is committed to providing 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.

Modelling and Simulating a Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Ivar Roskifte Leikarnes
The Arctic University of Norway

This thesis presents an overview of the different types of hybrid electric vehicle structures and basic guidelines regarding choice of components. The simulation model of a hybrid electric vehicle was created for this thesis to investigate the impact on fuel efficiency in relation to rolling resistance coefficient and vehicle weight. Although the model is not designed for optimal engine operation, the results indicate that lower rolling resistance coefficient and lower vehicle weight leads to reduced fuel consumption. Proposed improvements to the simulation design are presented in the report
