COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION OF PROPULSION SYSTEMS FOR ELECTRIC CITY CARS

VERGLEICHENDE UNTERSUCHUNGEN AN ANTRIEBSSYSTEMEN FUER ELEKTROSTADTAUTOS

AFTER REFERRING TO THE TECHNICAL SITUATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS CAUSED BY VEHICLES POWERED WITH COMBUSTION ENGINES AND THE ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRIC DRIVES FOR RAILWAYS AND PARTICULARLY THE DEVELOPMENT OF HITHERTO INDIVIDUAL ELECTRIC VEHICLES, THE AUTHORS CONSIDER THE REQUIREMENTS WHICH AN ELECTRIC ROAD VEHICLE HAS TO FULFIL. AS ELECTRIC VEHICLES WITH CONVENTIONAL CONTROLS CANNOT MEET THE DEMANDS OF PRESENT DAY TRAFFIC, NEW POSSIBILITIES HAVE BEEN EVALUATED, IE ELECTRONIC SERVO-CONTROLS IN COMBINATION WITH POSSIBLE DRIVE MOTORS WITH THEIR ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES WERE SUBJECTED TO A COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION. THE MOST PROMISING COMBINATIONS WERE SUBJECTED TO EXTENSIVE PRACTICAL TESTS USING AN EXPERIMENTAL VEHICLE. ALTHOUGH THE ELECTRICALLY DRIVEN PRIVATE VEHICLE IS RATHER LESS LIKELY TO SUCCEED IN THE PRESENT STATE OF DEVELOPMENT THAN THE ELECTRIC BUS OR THE SMALL ELECTRIC TRUCK, NONETHELESS, BECAUSE OF COST CONSIDERATIONS ONE WAS LIMITED TO THE USE OF A PRIVATE VEHICLE FOR THE EXPERIMENTS. THERE ARE DETAILED REPORTS ON THE RESULTS OBTAINED ON A PROGRAMMABLE TEST RIG AND ON THE EXPERIMENTAL VEHICLE.
