A Study on Power Characteristic of Electric Motorcycle using Automotive Simulation Models 2013-01-0059
In this paper, we propose that a model based design for an electric motor cycle system using ASM(Automotive Simulation Models). Before prototyping a realistic electric motorcycle, a reliable simulation program is required to test the capacities of the power sources and optimize the parameters of an electric motorcycle. Because ASM is based on Simulink, we can design the drivetrain and powertrain of the vehicle model systems easily.
To verify the electric motorcycle system analysis of design parameters such as maximum power, capacity, state of charge and slope angle is carried out by the simulation and experimental method. The predicted results by the development model were in good agreement with the experimentally obtained results. Therefore, the proposed electric motorcycle model can effectively reduce the expenses during the designing of an electric motorcycle system.
