Written for students and engineers, Electric Vehicle Technology Explained covers the principles, design, and applications of electric vehicle technology. The book presents clear and comprehensive explanations of the major aspects of electric vehicle development and offers an engineering-based evaluation of electric motor scooters, cars, buses, and trains. The revised second edition contains new chapters on types of electric vehicles, including pickup and linear motors, overall efficiencies and energy consumption, and power generation, particularly for zero carbon emissions.
MATLAB is used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
