Abstract

The simplest solution to electrification of the drivetrain is to remove the internal combustion engine (ICE). Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) operate on electricity only and the main components are primarily a high voltage (HV) battery, an electric motor and a motor controller. The distance driven in charge depleting (CD) mode is classified as the all electric range (AER). An intermediate step in electrification of the vehicle drivetrain is the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). Electric mobility offers an opportunity for diversification of the primary energy sources used in transport but also brings new risks, technological challenges and commercial imperatives. Based on the location, the charging infrastructure is classified as residential or commercial. Public charging infrastructures, including central charging stations for large car parks and street charging stations, are starting to be installed in large numbers to help the deployment of EVs and address the customer's ‘range anxiety’.
