Around the world, more and more cities already
have introduced electric-powered bus fleets or are planning to do
so in the near future. Thus far, electrical-powered bus fleets have
not yet been applied to regional bus services. This paper analyzes
the boundary conditions of the operational integration of
electrically powered bus fleets in regional bus services. The paper
introduces a methodical approach which can be used to identify
the optimum deployment strategy for electrical-powered buses
which is a combination of technological factors (e.g. dimensions
of energy storage and charging technology) the operational
regime to be applied (e.g. routing and scheduling). The
methodical approach is exemplarily instantiated with the analysis
of sample data of a bus line in a topographically challenging
region. The model-driven prognosis of the vehicle’s state of
charge is the basis for the definition of an optimum deployment
strategy for electrical-powered buses on that line.
