Miriam Stumpe: Planning Electric Bus Systems through Simultaneous Optimization of Charging Infrastructure and Vehicle Schedules
Sprache des Titels:
Given the global efforts to reduce emissionsand fossil fuel dependency, public transport operators are undergrowing pressure not only to replace their diesel buses withelectric buses, but also to provide a supporting charginginfrastructure. However, the transition from traditionalfuel-based bus transport to electric bus systems is still in itsearly stages in most cities due to the uncertain technologicalenvironment. As a result, it is necessary to solve twointertwined planning problems ? the long-term charging locationplanning and the operational electric vehicle scheduling ? toidentify charging infrastructure which remains feasible andsufficiently low-cost when environmental factors vary.
