    Abstract

    Energy Efficiency of Electric Vehicles and Recharging Technologies under Consideration of Usage-Profiles
    The work performed in this thesis concentrates on studying factors that affect energy efficiencies and hence the range of electric vehicles (EVs). The study investigates EV energy recovery systems, driving techniques for efficient acceleration and deceleration and the relatively new fast-DC charging technology and how It affects EV's battery systems. The results showed that energy recovery system and driving-style increase energy efficiency and vehicles range. It also showed that fast DC charging technology Is a feasible option to allow EVs to travel large distances In a day.
