Research of Adaptability to Battery Energy on Heavy-Duty Hybrid Electric Vehicle 2012-01-1608
At interurban transportation, improvement of fuel economy of hybrid electric heavy-duty diesel vehicles, which assist drive-axle by using regeneration energy, is minimum, compared to heavy-duty diesel vehicles. One of the factors is that hybrid electric heavy-duty vehicles are not able to balance regeneration energy (input) and power energy (output) at high speed driving. One reason is not opportunity to operate of braking at high speed driving for the heavy-duty vehicle. In this research, we focus on the method used for the battery energy, and propose a new concept of hybrid electric system to efficiently utilize battery energy. That system consists of electrical booster for supercharging intake air into engine cylinder. We have confirmed the feasibility of the electric system of a new HEV concept by using the simulation I created.
