Comparing Battery Solutions for Intercity In-motion Charging Buses: An Arnhem-Wageningen Case Study
MSc defense of Mirza Khalid Baig
This thesis explores the potential of intercity In-Motion Charging (IMC) buses as a sustainable urban transportation solution. IMC allows electric buses to charge while in motion, addressing the challenge of continuous operation. The study investigates how different charging scenarios affect battery aging using comprehensive battery models. Lithium-titanate (LTO) batteries consistently outperform LFP and NMC batteries, offering extended lifespan and cost-effectiveness.
