Abstract: The bus line types of Harbin are regular, bus rapid transit (BRT) and suburban. The actual driving data is collected by GPS devices and divided into kinematics sequences. Eleven characteristic parameters of the kinematics sequences are calculated. The representative driving cycles are constructed by principal component analysis and cluster analysis. The Harbin driving cycle is compared with the common driving cycles of Zhuzhou city and Chinese typical city. The energy consumption simulations of an electric vehicle model are conducted through MATLAB with different common driving cycles. The simulation results show the difference between Harbin driving cycles and common driving cycles and verify the construction significance of Harbin driving cycles.
