Abstract:
A drive cycle is a time series of vehicle speed pattern developed to simulate real world driving conditions. These driving cycles are used for computing estimating vehicle on-road energy consumption, vehicle emissions and assessing traffic impact. Vehicle operating on transportation fuels are significantly source of air pollution and these are being replaced by small electrical vehicle in congested road traffic conditions like densely populated residential areas, nearby area around hospitals and market places. The electrical vehicle run quiter and doesn’t produce emissions like combustion engines. So far, there is no existing drive cycle officially developed for electric three wheelers which can represent real world driving pattern in India. In this study, 15 number of three wheelers were driven by different drivers in various rotes of a tier II city of India and vehicle speed pattern were recorded using on-board Global positioning System (GPS) and collected data was analyzed and logically compressed to develop a driving cycle for electrical three wheelers. The critical driving parameters such as relative position acceleration, average speed and positive kinetic energy were computed and compared with Indian driving cycle which is a regulatory cycle for two and three wheelers. This driving cycle is useful for the development of new drive train and efficient batteries and their evaluation.
