Scania is one of the leading European manufacturers of heavy‑duty vehicles (HDV), with global sales of 88'000 trucks, 8'480 buses and 12'810 engines in 2018. When it comes to energy consumption (EC) and global warming, we actively contribute to the necessary reduction of EC and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
The assessment of future saving potentials, where only concepts or prototypes of the components exist, is done by simulation.

The upcoming electrification of HDV powertrains in the 2020ies means, that one main assembly group of HDV will be completely redesigned.
For the correct dimensioning of the powertrain components and the assessment of energy consumption and battery wear, before the first prototypes even exist, forecasts about the probable vehicle operation are necessary.
The vehicle operation consists of the driving phase and of the standing phase, where both vary heavily between applications, e. g. long haulage vs. urban delivery. To make reliable forecasts about the future operation of Scania's electrical trucks, drive cycles and daily operation cycles incl. standing and charging need to be elaborated based on the analysis of the current conventional trucks.

The outcome shall be an English thesis on the vehicle operation of electrical trucks, which can be published by the University. It shall also serve as technical report for Traton, thus the companies Scania, MAN, VW Caminhões and VW Nutzfahrzeuge.

- Analyse the operational data from connected vehicles and from data loggers

- Generate cycles for the driving phase and for the daily operation.

- Simulate selected truck configurations on the generated cycles.

- Check the simulation results for plausibility.
