A Drivable Electric Car Simulator 690117

This paper describes alterations to a conventional passenger car that give it the acceleration and range performance characteristics of a battery-powered electric car. Acceleration tailoring is accomplished by engine and drive train modifications. Range performance is duplicated by an onboard computer designed to measure power consumption and impose those constraints characterizing electric propulsion in the foreseeable future. As such, this simulator is usable for conducting experiments designed to yield knowledge about a broad spectrum of acceptable performance limitations as might be imposed by safety considerations and attitudes of the general motoring public.
