Since its inception in 1984, the INEL Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Program has encompassed a spectrum of interrelated engineering activities for electric vehicle technology. The principal categories, described herein, are: laboratory testing of materials components, and subsystems; field testing of operational configurations; design evaluation of candidate components and systems; technology overview; data analysis and trending; technical assessments; and mathematical modeling/computer simulation of operating conditions and equipment response; project management/coordination of both INEL activities and US Department of Energy-sponsored industrial activities; and cooperative technology development and transfer with industry and academia. Current program activities are directed toward the evaluation electric vehicles, battery and powertrain system and subsystem technology, and battery system design and integration through comprehensive laboratory and field testing.
