Presentation of the DynaCov project

Wireless charging demonstrators have been implemented in a number of sites across the world. DynaCoV is investigating the feasibility of deploying Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer technology in the UK to support the decarbonisation of heavy goods vehicles and buses in particular. This presentation covers the traffic modelling and electrical modelling work on a case study site in Coventry which may become the UK’s first demonstrator. It shows how the benefit of Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer technology depends and relates to the location, the traffic, the vehicle mix as well as the market penetration of electric vehicles.
