Study and Application of Driving Cycle for City Bus
A typical driving cycle reflecting the real-world driving conditions of city bus is developed to show average speed, running time, acceleration and deceleration time, and passengers flow on the city bus with the case study in Dalian. A practical method for the improvement of the fuel economy with the application of the driving cycle for city bus is discussed based on the matching of drive train. The results show the practical value of the methodology on the improvement of the city bus fuel economy.
