Are my vehicles compatible for electric?

On what data is the electromagnetic compatibility of a fleet calculated ?


The electro-compatibility of a fleet of vehicles is calculated based on several technical data, including:

Vehicle electromagnetic emissions: Vehicles emit electromagnetic signals that can interfere with other nearby electrical equipment. The electromagnetic emissions of vehicles are measured in terms of their radiation level and frequency.

Vehicle electromagnetic immunity: Vehicles must also be capable of withstanding electromagnetic signals emitted by other surrounding electrical equipment. The vehicle’s resistance to these signals is measured in terms of their tolerance to electromagnetic interference.

Vehicle grounding quality: Vehicles must be properly grounded to prevent the accumulation of electric charges that could cause electromagnetic interference.

These data are measured in accordance with EMC standards as defined by the relevant regulatory authorities, such as the European Commission or the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States. Automobile manufacturers are required to comply with these standards to ensure that their vehicles do not disrupt other nearby electrical equipment and are not themselves disrupted by other electrical equipment.

How to obtain this data reliably?


Electromagnetic compatibility data for a fleet of vehicles can be reliably obtained by conducting tests and measurements on the vehicles according to established technical standards.


Automobile manufacturers typically perform comprehensive tests on their vehicles to ensure compliance with the required electromagnetic compatibility standards before they are brought to the market. These tests include measurements of vehicle electromagnetic emissions and immunity, as well as assessments of grounding quality.


Fleet managers can also conduct tests to verify the electromagnetic compatibility of their vehicle fleets. This can be done internally using appropriate measuring equipment or by engaging specialized companies that provide electromagnetic compatibility testing services.

It is important to ensure that tests are conducted in accordance with the established technical standards to guarantee the reliability of the obtained electromagnetic compatibility data. Technical standards provide clear guidelines on testing methods, measurement equipment, and the success criteria to be followed.


How to measure the savings that the transition to the electric vehicle could generate?


To measure the savings that the transition to the electric vehicle could generate for a fleet, it is important to consider several elements:


Fuel costs: Electric vehicles use electricity to operate, which can be much cheaper than gasoline or diesel. It is important to calculate the operating cost of electric vehicles, including the cost of electricity and the energy consumption of the vehicle, to estimate the potential savings compared to internal combustion vehicles.


Maintenance costs: Electric vehicles tend to require less maintenance than internal combustion vehicles because they have fewer moving parts and don’t require oil changes. Maintenance costs can therefore be reduced, which can also lead to savings.

Tax credits: In some countries, there are tax credits or other financial incentives for companies that use electric vehicles. It is important to factor these incentives into savings calculations.

Depreciation: Electric vehicles tend to depreciate more slowly than internal combustion vehicles due to their advanced technology and the growing demand for electric vehicles. It is important to consider depreciation costs in savings calculations.


Other costs: It is important to consider other costs associated with the purchase and use of electric vehicles, such as the costs of charging, the costs of renting charging stations and the costs of insurance. 

By combining these elements, it is possible to obtain a reliable estimate of the potential savings that the transition to the electric vehicle could generate for a fleet. It is important to consider all variables and benchmark against internal combustion vehicles to get a clear picture of potential savings.
