Very cool that he included recumbent two wheelers and recumbent trikes to the selection of ebikes as well!
I played a bit with the simulator and comparing calculated battery consumption to actual measurements on my daily commute it was pretty much spot on.
The Ebike range simulator calculated 8.6A battery consumption for my 36km one way trip at 40km/h. While my measurements most of the time are around 8.5A they vary between 7.5A and 9.5A depending on my pedalling effort and head winds. Needless to say there is a selection for rider strength among a bunch of other things to choose or alter to match the parameters to your ebike and yourself.
The only serious downside I found so far with this ebike trip simulator is the inability to save your trip selection and ebike setup but hey its free!
Together with the Hub Motor and Ebike Simulator from Grin Tech and the Bicycle Speed and Power Calculator based on Walter Zorn’s measurements and calculations, this Ebike range simulator is an other useful online tool for ebikers.
I just found out the ebike trip simulator let you save the ebike configuration to a file on your computer now! Nice!
