Abstract

The paper describes a performance and environmental analysis of an innovative e-bike by means of a dynamic model equipped with a suitable control for the management of the assisted drive of the e-bike. The main advantage of this approach consists of the opportunity to simulate different tracks, e-bikes characterized by different parameters (total mass, wheels moment of inertia) and different control strategies. The authors have also conducted an environmental analysis of the studied vehicle, particularly comparing the e-bike with a thermal moped, in terms of environmental impact.
