Abstract

Today, environmental quality of cities is an emerging issue. Even if electrical propulsion systems can solve the problem of pollution they show limits due to the limited maximum range. To solve the problem, in this paper a new concept guided busway for public transport is reported. It is composed of a series of power modules, installed on the roadway, feeding electric vehicles. The vehicles, public bus or cars, are equipped with a pantograph installed under the deck which permits to deliver the traction power, moreover the vehicles are equipped with batteries which supply the required energy to the motors both in presence of a power cut off or in presence of a bus run deviation. In this designing stage many problems must be
