Abstrac

The future perspectives of electric vehicles are getting the attention from major manufacturers. Moreover, they are attracting followers from the field with the most advanced technological development: the competition. In pursuit of victory, competition pushes vehicle components to the limit with a view to optimise the performance of them.
The aim of this paper is to develop a sizing algorithm for an energy storage system of a competition motorcycle, in such a way that it can be possible to provide to the motor enough energy to complete the race and the needed power to get the best performance. This algorithm takes into account dynamics and technical characteristics of the analysed motorcycle in order to get an optimal battery storage sizing. Finally, the result of this algorithm is compared with a real competition tests.
