Abstract [en]

This text as a part of the master thesis, describes the propulsion of electric vehicles. In the context of this thesis, there is a study made that gives an overview of the market of electric and hybrid electric vehicles in Europe. One of the facts of this study is that the most manufacturers launch their first electric vehicle in the next following years.

Technological is there a key difference between vehicles on the market and vehicles that are launched in the next years. The upcoming electrical vehicles use mostly a high power lithium-ion battery and an induction motor. The second part of this thesis describes the different technologies that are used to propel an electric vehicle.

The third and last part of this thesis are a few simulations of an electric vehicle. Here in is a power simulation based on a drive cycle. The power curve is calculated with several losses of an electric vehicle. Based on this power curve is it possible to simulate the maximum range of an electric vehicle on one battery cycle.
