Fully updated throughout, "Electric Vehicle Technology, Second
Edition," is a complete guide to the principles, design and
applications of electric vehicle technology. Including all the
latest advances, it presents clear and comprehensive coverage of
the major aspects of electric vehicle development and offers an
engineering-based evaluation of electric motor scooters, cars,
buses and trains.
This new edition includes: important new chapters on types of
electric vehicles, including pickup and linear motors, overall
efficiencies and energy consumption, and power generation,
particularly for zero carbon emissionsexpanded chapters updating
the latest types of EV, types of batteries, battery technology and
other rechargeable devices, fuel cells, hydrogen supply,
controllers, EV modeling, ancillary system design, and EV and the
environmentbrand new practical examples and case studies
illustrating how electric vehicles can be used to substantially
reduce carbon emissions and cut down reliance on fossil
fuelsfuturistic concept models, electric and high-speed trains and
developments in magnetic levitation and linear motorsan examination
of EV efficiencies, energy consumption and sustainable power
MATLAB(R) examples can be found on the companion website
Explaining the underpinning science and technology, this book is
essential for practicing electrical, automotive, power, control and
instrumentation engineers working in EV research and development.
It is also a valuable reference for academics and students in
automotive, mechanical, power and electrical engineering.
