This study presents a hybrid storage solution for urban transportation networks in order to shorten recharging times while also extending battery life and reliability. The suggested system is applied to an existing electric car, offering a methodology for rapid integration of proposed systems on diverse vehicles through the proposed upgrading procedure. Finally, the system is calibrated and tested, demonstrating how the suggested control arrangement makes vehicle commissioning much easier.
