Enabling Predictive Control of Electric Bus Vehicles (PhD)

Model predictive control (MPC) has emerged as a potential candidate solution to the energy management problem for electric vehicles in recent years, however there has been relatively limited research into MPC integration into battery electric bus architectures. This project aims to build on previous research into energy management strategies for electric vehicles to understand the scale of opportunity presented by MPC-based strategies if they are introduced into battery electric bus powertrains.
