ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE ON BOARD OF ROAD ELECTRIC VEHICLES
The use of batteries to power electric vehicles is evaluated in terms of accelerations and maximum speed. A kaline, lead/acid, and high energy density batteries are analyzed for lifetime cycles, weight range, and power density. It is concluded that the lead/acid and Ni/Cd batteries are suitable for immediate application, but improvement in lifetime and reliability for economy is recommended. Future configurations of the Ni/Fe and Ni/Zn batteries will open the market to urban, suburban and commercial transportation.
