City-scale assessment of stationary energy storage supporting end-station fast charging for different bus-fleet electrification levels

Fast-charging electric buses at bus end-stations can lead to high peak-demand charges for bus operators. A promising method to reduce these peak-demand charges is combining the fast charging station (FCS) with a stationary energy storage unit (SES). …

CREATE Webinar - City-scale energy consumption and charging simulation model for public electric buses in Singapore

On Friday 20th November 2020, I gave a webinar about my work as part of the CREATE webinar series. In this talk, I present the city-scale energy consumption and charging simulation model for public electric buses in Singapore that I have built for my PhD thesis and shows some preliminary results.

Developing a Large-Scale Microscopic Model of Electric Public Bus Operation and Charging

The pace of electric bus deployment is increasing rapidly worldwide. Transportation agencies and bus operators are faced with the challenges of re-evaluating the dimensioning of their bus fleet and the associated charging infrastructure with the …

Optimal electric bus charging scheduling for local balancing of fluctuations in PV generation

Photovoltaic power generation and charging of electric vehicles each pose a burden to distribution grids. Controlled charging of electric vehicles can mitigate the fluctuations of photovoltaics and ensure smoother grid operation. This paper presents …

Video: Demonstration of electric public bus operation and charging in CityMoS (December 2018)

The City Mobility Simulator (CityMoS) is a city-scale, agent-based, microscopic traffic simulator developed at TUMCREATE (Singapore). In addition to the existing models of private vehicles, public transport models have been added recently to the simulator. In this video, we demonstrate how the public bus lines of Singapore are modelled in CityMoS in a city-scale scenario where all bus lines would be operated by electric buses.

Estimation of the energy demand of electric buses based on real-world data for large-scale public transport networks

An increasing number of cities are transitioning from fossil fuel-powered buses for public transport to battery electric buses. Evaluating the energy demand of buses has become an important prerequisite for the planning and deployment of large …

Electrification of Road Transport in Singapore and Its Integration Into the Power System

Being a small well‐organized city state, Singapore appears to be an ideal place to establish a fully electric road transport system. To analyze the challenges and potential of electric mobility (or “electromobility”), TUMCREATE Ltd., a company funded …
