Nowadays energy storage is the keypoint of the development of electrical vehicles (EV) for charging time, autonomy and cost reasons. The main energy storage system for electrical vehicles is the battery and can cost up to one third of the vehicle price. Nevertheless the battery has limited power features and can be damaged by EV peak power requirements. Thus higher power density energy storage systems (such as supercapacitors) are used in combination with batteries (multisource EV). A reduced-scale EV demonstrator has been developed to present the concept of multi-source EV to high school and undergraduate students. The aim of this demonstrator is to highlight the interest of research on electric vehicle to attract students in this research topic.
