The continuing electrification of powertrains is driving automotive architectures toward electrical power distribution grids, specifically modern nanogrids. This transformation is being driven in part by traction motors capable of regenerative braking and partly by the inclusion of the large storage battery into the powertrain domain. The power grid model consists of generation, transmission, and distribution components, as well as grid-scale storage, and all have automotive analogs and hold the potential of more broadly shared technologies and components. This paper will examine some pitfalls that have become apparent with the emergence of modern hybrid and plug-in vehicles (including PHEV and EV), and some potential lessons from 100 years of utility power production. It will also examine some extrapolations and potential benefits from the looming synergistic unification of these previously unrelated power technologies.

Indian Farm Land holding trend indicates fragmentation of agricultural lands year-by-year. Approximately 4 to 6% farm lands of large size farm households became small & marginal size farms due to fragmentation in last decade and now 93% of farm holdings are less than 2 hectares in size. This is in contrary to Rest of the World wherein the farm lands are merged and Mechanisation level of more than 95% already achieved. The mechanisation trend in Rest of the World indicates the growth of equipment necessarily with greater than 100 hp engine power. In India, smaller size tractors and self-propelled equipment are in increasing demand, however limited due to higher cost of ownership and low economic scale of operation. To mechanize small and marginal farms, innovative solutions were investigated.

This paper elaborates vehicle electrification areas for off highway vehicles to improve the overall vehicle performance and efficiency. As growing environment and safety concerns are leading to stricter safety and emission norms globally, hybrid vehicle are proven to reduce carbon footprint. The benefits of vehicle electrification can be fetched in two distinct, yet related verticals viz: sub-system electrification and vehicle level electrification. While the later delivers substantial improvement in both performance and efficiency, the investments are more and returns thereon are delayed. On the other hand sub system electrification provides an incremental step towards achieving the bigger goal and also provides the perceivable operator experience. This paper illustrates a vehicle electrification case study and the challenges involved. Further, it also manifests the benefits of subsystem electrification on off highway vehicle applications.

Abstract Commercial Vehicle segment in India has been in the shadow of the passenger car segment that has seen visible effort by automobile manufacturers for electrification. To reduce excessive dependence on fossils fuels commercial vehicle segment should focus on the development in electric vehicle technology. The ability of electricity to be produced from renewable sources, ease of transmissibility, cost and availability makes it, in the opinion of the authors, the primary choice as an alternate energy source for vehicles. This paper presents the necessity, benefits and potential for development of hybrid light commercial vehicles. Keywords: Fossil fuels; Hybrid light commercial vehicles

With a rise in the per capita income of the country, the passenger load in the premium trains as well as premium travel classes of the Indian Railways is also increasing. Since Indian Railways still remains the artery of nation’s public transit, so it is equally important for the Railways to match the demand for the premium and air conditioned coaches as well as facilities for its passengers. For the same purpose, the rail coach factories are rolling out the well equipped air conditioned Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches at a quick pace. On the other hand, this is accelerating the demand for electric energy by the railways at a rapid pace. This increased demand for electricity is being fulfilled by three ways viz; overhead lines, self generating coach production and on board power supply by adding generator cars. Although these methods have proven to be successful in fulfilling the demand, but the downside is the increased operational cost.

Future trend for off-highway vehicles is demanding higher reliability and efficiency in terms of improved product performance, improved fuel efficiency & enhanced user experience. This paper focuses on development & integration of electric modules in powertrain architecture of off-highway vehicles. As fuel prices are increasing consistently from last 2~3 decades, there is huge opportunity for technology development based upon alternate fuels, use of renewable energy and electrification. For any products Cost, Efficiency and Reliability are critical success parameters. Electrification of vehicle plays vital role in improving product efficiency as compared to conventional power transmission methods. The major challenge in electrification is to generate and retain electric energy for long duration, complexities in powertrain architecture etc.

Hybrid Technology has been successfully incorporated into passenger and commercial heavy vehicles with increasing acceptance around the globe. Seeing the success and evolution of hybrid technology, many defence organizations around the world are currently researching and developing hybrid prototypes of tracked combat vehicles to move into a new era of warfare equipment with less emissions, less fuel consumption, better performance, more power at disposal for weapons system and mobility of the vehicle. Hybrid propulsion systems for tracked vehicles are being actively pursued, owing to their improved fuel economy, significant on-board electricity supply and stealth operation ability. Some hybrid powertrains have been previously applied to tracked vehicles, and the engineering and prototype implementation was reported. Compared to hybrid wheeled vehicles, research on hybrid tracked vehicles in an optimization setting is still very scanty.

Driving EVs toward lower cost The race is on to reduce battery and electric-drive systems costs while improving efficiency. Seeking ways to make better computer crashes New models and simulations help improve safety as software and hardware provide more realism to iterate designs more quickly. Evaluating aluminum bonds Adhesively joined aluminum alloy sheets present challenges that steel-adhesive joints do not. Ford researchers present a modified technique to inspect Al-adhesive joints in lab and production environments. Leading the attack on engine pumping losses Cylinder deactivation delivers real-world fuel economy gains, helping vehicles to meet and exceed their sticker numbers. That’s why the downsized/boosted guys now want it on their engines.
