Lets say you are driving on the freeway at 90 kmph and see the opportunity to accelerate to 110. Consider a 1000 kg component of the load. The energy you must deliver to that to speed up these 20 kmph isWeight doesn't decrease range as much as you might think. Since regen gets you it back when you stop, more weight means more regen.
You are completely ignoring the fact that the vehicle is still moving forward while using no energy from the batteries while it is coasting. OR actually sending power to the batteries when regen braking, while again, still moving forward.If you have to slow back down to 90 kmph that energy is lost to drag and or the brakes.
What electric bike do you have?Yeah, more mass means regeneration has a longer 'sweet spot'.
It means I can two-up on my motorcycle and in the mountains here I don't see a difference in range... The numbers go down a tiny bit more up the hills but they go up much more when going down the hills.
Why the contradiction? Because regen works better at higher, longer bursts. Everything is curves, and you put weight behind your regen, and that curve becomes longer. Longer means more energy of the momentary regen is saved.
tl;dr no numbers? You're missing the effective amperage load for regeneration from your calculation.
A Zero!What electric bike do you have?
I was on my phone when I saw your post. I see it now on the computer.A Zero!
There's a spot in the profile for people to put their vehicles. Yours says you have a Forester. ^-^ It normally shows on the left under your profile picture; if it's not showing, click on the little arrow under the profile pictures.
It's my first bike! My spouse has ridden for thirty years. She got this one for me, used, last August. So I'm coming up on a year ownership and almost four thousand miles.Looks like a fun ride. You have had it for 6 years? What is your real world range?
