VDL Enabling Transport Solutions (VDL-ETS) is a fast growing e-mobility division of VDL Group. VDL-ETS offers complete transport solutions based on full electric buses including charge infrastructure and optimal routeplanning.
A public transport bus driving its scheduled route will need energy for its drive train and all its electric auxilliaries. A main consumer of energy is for example the cabine climate control system (HVAC) offering the passengers optimal comfort.
The Control Systems Group works together with VDL_ETS on the development of an in-vehicle energy management system that will control the electric power flows in the bus taking into account the battery's State-of-Charge and State-of-Function, the route and time schedule, optimaly using the flexibility in power consumption of all the vehicle's electric auxilliaries.
