A review of the factors and input parameters influencing the range of an Edison electric vehicle according to measurements

Main Article Content


Keywords : EV range, batteries temperature, tires condition, energy efficiency of the drive, acceleration, additional energy sources

Research and development help improve the reliability of EVs range, battery capacity, and trouble-free charging (or service). These factors affect consumers’ interest in EVs. The quality of EV use can be supported by a modern technology called Energy Assistant (EA). The task of EA is to inform the driver about the current range, the necessity to recharge the batteries, and so on to avoid a critical situation. The main aim of this article was to investigate factors and input parameters for the proposal of EA. The Edison EV designed at the University of Žilina, was used for experimental work under real conditions and in an accredited lab with MAHA equipment.
