Simplified Version of the Federal Urban Driving Schedule for Electric Vehicle Battery Testing.


DE89004839

Publication Date 1988
Page Count 40
Abstract A simple version of the Federal Urban Driving Schedule (FUDS) has long been sought after by those involved in electric vehicle battery testing to (1) reduce the cost of hardware required to test electric vehicle batteries and record the data, (2) extract information that cannot be obtained from a continuously transient cycle and (3) decrease the uncertainty in range determination by shortening the cycle. The methodology and results of this effort by the EHP Battery Test Working Task Force for a simplified FUDS battery discharge test cycle (called the SFUDS79) is presented. This battery test cycle may be used to replace the constant-rate discharge tests which are presently used to characterize batteries for electric vehicles, and offers an alternative to the FUDS test while providing the same information regarding battery range and cycle life. 11 figs., 4 tabs.
