EFFECTS OF BATTERY TECHNOLOGIES, DRIVING PATTERNS, AND CLIMATE CONTROL ON THE PERFORMANCE OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES

A computer software package, EAGLES, has been developed at Argonne National Laboratory. This paper presents EAGLES predictions of EV driving range, acceleration rate, and energy consumption under various driving patterns, with different battery technologies, and with assumptions concerning use of air conditioners and/or heaters for climate comfort control. The specifications of a baseline, four-passenger EV for given design performance requirements are established, assuming urban driving conditions represented by the Los Angeles 92 driving cycle and using battery characteristics similar to those of the United States Advanced Battery Consortium (USABC) midterm battery performance goals. The results of this paper show the importance of considering various effects, such as battery technology, driving pattern, and climate control, in the determination of EV performances.
