Abstract

As a part of a National research program (Ricerca di Sistema 2015 and 2017), ENEA has proposed an innovative hybrid storage system that allows a fast recharge of electric public transportation vehicles. In order to demonstrate the feasibility of this idea, researchers of University of Florence have implemented the proposed system on a existing electric bus in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed system. In this work authors introduce main features of the proposed prototype.
