Development and validation of E-Bus simulation model

In this paper, a simulation model of an electric bus Higer KLQ6125GEV3 is developed in IGNITE software taking into account technical-operational characteristics and drive cycle which is achieved during real operating conditions. The goal of this paper is a validation of the considered model based on the comparison of the generated power from the electric motor, which was recorded in real operating conditions, with the generated power from the electric motor obtained in the simulation program. Through multiple simulations with different parameters, an almost identical drive cycle was obtained in the simulation compared to the recorded drive cycle in real operating conditions, which further resulted in very high degree of correlation between recorded power and power obtained in the simulation. In this way, the simulation model of Higer KLQ6125GEV3 bus was validated and can be used for examination of the technical-operational characteristics of the considered bus on other lines of public transport in order to determine the convenience of its application on them.
