Electrical bus fleet simulator – system level validation

A key method in the optimisation of novel electric vehicle systems are simulations. Simulations provide important information that can be utilised to plan an optimised system with reduced total costs and harmful emissions, or optimise the operation of a system with digital-twin solutions. However,...
