Abstract [en]

In  this  paper  the  performance  of  an  extended  range  electric  vehicle  (EREV)  already available on the market is analysed through a simulation using MATLAB. A real route has been modelled. The route, 140 km, is longer than the majority of the daily travelling distance  of  the  population  in  order  to  show  how  this  vehicle  is  capable  to  cover  the requirements of the drivers. The importance of an adequate recharge net for electric cars has been showed through the simulation of two different scenarios; the current scenario and  a  hypothetical  future  scenario  where  recharge  points  were  available  in  all  public parking.  In  this  second  scenario,  the  Opel  Ampera  has  been  capable  to  work  fully  in electric mode, reducing the CO 2  emissions 38%. An  optimal  management  of  the  extender  range  of  the  car  has  been  presented  which reduce  emissions 20%, reduce cost of the route  33%, and operating time of the range extender  30%,  in  the  current  scenario  compared  with  the  management  made  by  the existed conduction modes of the car.
