Abstract:
A study was made in Delhi City on frequency of usage of various intermittent Electrical Loads on two wheelers during different driving conditions as below: a) Day/Night Time b) Peak Traffic Hours c) Different Test Riders The study showed following salient results: a) Horn and indicators are used upto a maximum of 5.45% and 6.84% respectively of the total driving time. b) All intermittent loads are used together for a maximum of 0.36% of the total driving time. c) The prime load on the battery is from Brake Light in heavy traffic density route, which varies from 15.53% to 71.95% (on an average 35%) and constitutes major factor for optimization of the charging circuit, battery capacity and other electrical loads on the battery.
