This paper investigates the impact of electrification of trucks and buses in an urban environment. The vehicles are charged while driving on electrified roads (continuous charging), and battery powered on the non-electrified roads. A power management algorithm is proposed for driving on the electrified roads. Simulations covering a 24-hour time frame are performed for a selected urban area in Paris, France. The resulting peak power demand and energy consumption are calculated for a single road segment and for several adjacent road segments.
