Economic Viability of Electrified Heavy Duty Trucking

Jason Quinn, Colorado State University

Dr. Jason Quinn (Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University) presented on how the electrification of heavy duty trucking represents a unique challenge and opportunity. This presentation examined vehicle modeling work coupled with real world truck drive cycles leveraged to understand the performance and corresponding economics of different electrification schemes including wireless power transfer and long range large battery systems. The work includes evaluation of the impact that different charging schemes have on the economics of the system.
