In this project analyses of city busses with hybrid and alternative drive concepts will be carried out.

Based on the experiences from the previous project the following themes will be reinforced:

  • Precise ascertainment of fuel consumption, exhaust and noise emissions
  • Energetic balancing of the main ancillary units
  • Simulation and use profile analysis to identify primary influencing factors on fuel consumption
  • Analysis of the impact of operational concepts and driver behaviour
  • Analysis of route profiles and topological features and their impact on mode of operation
  • Examination of consumption development in terms of operating life
  • Observation of weather-related differences in consumption and availability (winter vs. summer months)
