Electrification of Heavy-Duty Construction Vehicles, Hardback Book

Electrification of Heavy-Duty Construction Vehicles Hardback

Part of the Synthesis Lectures on Advances in Automotive Technology series


The number of heavy-duty construction vehicles is increasing significantly with growing urban development causing poor air quality and higher emissions.

The electrification of construction vehicles is a way to mitigate the resulting air pollution and emissions.

In this book, we consider tracked bulldozers, as an example, to demonstrate the approach and evaluate the benefits of the electrification of construction vehicles.

The book is intended for senior undergraduate students, graduate students, and anyone with an interest in the electrification of heavy vehicles.

The book begins with an introduction to electrification of heavy-duty construction vehicles.

The second chapter is focused on the terramechanics and interactions between track and blades with soil.

The third chapter presents the architecture and modeling of a series hybrid bulldozer.

Finally, the fourth chapter discusses energy management systems for electrified heavy construction vehicles.
