Abstract

The present paper outlines an analysis of the energy consumption of a light commercial vehicle that is powered purely electrically by an induction machine. The question was to what extent energy consumption is impacted by two defined aspects: On the one hand these are different control concepts for the traction machine and on the other hand varying link voltage. At first the influence of the controls on the energy consumption of the drive unit will be analyzed, followed by an efficiency analysis that takes into account the different controls at varying link voltage.
