The project aims to analyze the recovery of braking energy for cars with electrified powertrains. The analysis covers multiple e-motor configurations and friction braking concepts, including one, two and four e-motors and braking system acting independently or integrated with e-motor braking. The goal is to maximize energy recovery with minimal impact on the vehicle's stability or maneuverability.
