Homework Help: Calculation of energy storage system for PEV

  1. Dec 14, 2016 #1
    The teacher asked some questions about some calculations for finding efficient requirements for designing a energy storage system for plug-in hybrid car. I have not any expertise about this topic, so can you help me about the solving and finding a efficient and best solution for this question.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The requirements are;

    Test cycle range: 140 miles
    Test cycle energy: 270Wh/mile at the output of the energy storage system
    Traction inverter(s) supply: 500-600VDC
    Continuous power: 50kW
    10 second power: 400kW
    30 second power: 150kW
    Design life: 10 years minimum

    I do not know how i can calculate with the help of some equations for finding efficient energy storage system, so if anyone knows, can you help me for finding efficient ESS for plug-in electric vehicle.
    If anyone helps me, i will be proud.
