A modeling-based simulation and hardware-based emulator are developed to facilitate smart design of the future e-bus and e-truck charging systems and infrastructures. An existing e-bus line in the City of Turku, in Southwest Finland, was the starting point for this work. Aim of the work is to develop tools for the cities, municipalities, e-bus operators, and other decision makers to design and procure more sustainable and efficient transportation systems. Our study focuses on the accurate model of a charging hub, available PV resource and an advanced Energy Management System (EMS) to control energy flows.
