Electric Vehicle Regenerative Braking Duty Cycle and Validation

Regenerative braking is essential for electric vehicles because it provides energy, improves the range of the vehicles and reduces the need for charging. The objective of this presentation is to show a methodology for collecting data and calculating the duty cycle for regenerative braking. The methodology can be used for other applications. In addition, the presentation will demonstrate how the duty cycle results can be used to design a validation plan for regenerative braking.

Key Words: Design for Reliability, Duty Cycle, Reliability, Validation, Regenerative Braking
