Use the forum's Google search for
and you will get about 100 hits.
AndyH has some good insights.
You might even PM him.
To get your LEAF model working, put in approximate values and curves that you can update later.
How do you plan to "run" your model?
Thank you! My model simulates all vehicle components and calculates energy flux. It accounts several types of regenerative braking, battery SOC, vehicle aerodynamic and rolling friction and much more.
It is almost ready and for now I used a diferent Lithium battery.
I'm simulating LA4 US and I will simulate much more.
Analysis of Off-Board Powered Thermal Preconditioning in Electric Drive Vehicles
This paper has basic weight/Cd/frontal area info as well as some battery details. Contacting the authors may give you the other info you need, as they modeled a "leaf-like" car for this study.
Thank you for sharing the article I'll read it carefully, then I'll give you some feedback.
I have a lot of articles and I'm trying to cross a lot of information. I've already gather some interesting stuff about Leaf.

The app can take the commute distance, avg speed, use of climate conditioning and tell us what the likely miles/kwh is and thus how many miles a 100% charged will be left with after the round trip.
Or even, I should be able to put my home and work addresses - and they should be able to calculate the range based on the route (and thus use known speed, elevation changes). Nissan an even give a summer/winter range since avg temperatures are known.
I know they have an app (from GE?) - but that just calculates the distance and assumed 100 miles of range.
That would be very interesting and I believe that my software can estimate it.
When I finish It I may put some information in your forum alright ?
Do you know how much accessories power is drawn from the battery with AC off and with AC on ?
