Hybrid Route Vehicle Fuel Economy 2005-01-1164

This paper describes the application of a systematic methodology to the exploratory investigation of fuel economy for a heavy-duty route vehicle with a hybrid powertrain. The analytical study considered parallel hydraulic hybrid, parallel electric and series electric hybrid architectures in addition to the baseline conventional powertrain. The real world driving mission for the target vehicle, a domestic refuse collection truck, was clarified by making vehicle measurements. System simulation was then used as a key tool to support the fuel economy predictions and trade studies.
