Optimal Design and Dynamic Simulation of a Hybrid Solar Vehicle 2006-01-2997

The paper deals with a detailed study on the optimal sizing of a solar hybrid car, based on a longitudinal vehicle dynamic model and considering energy flows, weight and costs. The model describes the effects of solar panels area and position, vehicle dimensions and propulsion system components on vehicle performance, weight, fuel savings and costs. It is shown that significant fuel savings can be achieved for intermittent use with limited average power, and that economic feasibility could be achieved in next future, considering the expected trends in costs and prices.
