Structure Concept for a Distribution Transport Truck with Battery-Electric Powertrain

Michael Kühn, E@motion GmbH

By means of a system analysis of heavy electric trucks that are on the market or about to be introduced with a permissible total weight ≥ 12 tons, the drive structures known today are analyzed and structured. Hence the changes compared to today`s internal combustion engine layout are shown. The advantages and disadvantages with regard to the integration and function of the battery-electric powertrains are then elaborated. Based on an analysis and compilation of the main areas of application in distribution transport, a ranking of the electric truck system structures is carried out with the perspective of universal and commercially value-adding use in these applications. With the knowledge gained about the integration of the electric drive and high efficiency in operation, a concept for an ideal structure of an electric truck for these applications is described and its layout is compared with the internal combustion engine system structure
