Abstract

The Waseda Advanced Electric Micro Bus (WEB) has been developed and tested for convenient regional public transportation as a part of the Advanced Electric Micro Bus Transportation System Project supported by NEDO. The bus system is characterized by the significantly reduced amount of batteries for lightweight. The batteries are occasionally rechargcd by a non-contact inductivc rapid- charging system (Inductive Power Supply System: IPS System) at the terminal station. By adopting an advanced hybrid eleclric power supply system (Nickel Sodium Chloride Battery & Super capacitor for WEB-1, Nickel Sodium Chloride Battery & Li-ion Battery for WEB-2) and related key components, significant improvements in energy consumption and C02 emission have been achieved, compared to that of an equivalent diesel micro bus.
