E-Mobility: DIVA Vehicle Scheduling for Electric Buses
E-Mobility is the future, especially in public transport. This also means: new complex requirements for vehicle scheduling, for example regarding vehicle range, charging infrastructure and charging time of electric buses. With DIVA by MENTZ you’ll be able to create reliable schedules right now.
Validation & optimization of E-bus blocks
Optimization and display of costs in DIVA
Account of context-specific optimization conditions
Vehicle block optimization based on the GENIOS Kernel
Support of different charging strategies (opportunity charging, overnight charging)
Customizable linear & graduated loading curves
Automatically calculate and visualize charging ranges
The electric bus block validator by MENTZ automatically calculates the charging status at the beginning and at the end of each trip. The remaining capacity, range and charging implications are displayed graphically.
Create Meaningful Comparative Calculations
Different block scenarios are possible through design of the charging network, weather conditions and other influencing factors. Comparative calculations can be made with DIVA to serve data-driven decision-making. This can indicate a need for infrastructure expansion or implementation of trip time buffers according to weather conditions.
Automatically Check Loading Capacities
Die Ladeinfrastruktur kann normalerweise nicht von mehreren
Fahrzeugen gleichzeitig genutzt werden. Mit Hilfe der
automatischen Kapazitätsprüfung fallen Engpässe und
Ausbaupotenziale jedoch schneller auf. So können Sie rasch
The settings for electric bus vehicle scheduling can be flexibly configured and include further options. Technical developments can be dealt with as they occur on vehicles and/or within the charging infrastructure.
The following can be set:
- charging points with individual capacities & preparation times at stops
- different charging speeds per point & vehicle type
- consumption values by vehicle type
- battery capacities
- depreciation of charging- & bus infrastructure
- electricity-, personnel- & vehicle costs
