A user-friendly method to analyze cost effectiveness of different electric bus systems
Paper in proceeding, 2017

This paper is an update on a method to analyze and compare electric bus and charging systems from a total cost perspective. The method is useful for proposing a suitable combination of bus and charger systems depending on the route specifications, timetables and other local conditions. In this update, a user-friendly tool which simplifies the analysis process is presented. The analysis tool enables the user to experimentally investigate and quantify the trade-offs between parameters such as battery size, charging strategies and charging infrastructure, vehicle fleet and operational costs from a total cost perspective
