EPACs (Electric Pedal Assisted Cycles) represent a very efficient and fashionable mean of non-polluting transport. They are useful for bringing education, for health service and they guarantee the lowest energy cost per distance traveled. In this paper, a power kit has been designed and implemented on a real electric bicycle. In particular, hardware architectures and control algorithms are developed together, taking in account shared needs. An optimal choice of the components and an innovative overboost strategy characterize the provided system. Experimental results and comparison with a benchmark product available in the market demonstrate the efficiency of the whole system.
