Turbine-Electric Tractor-Trailer Test Rig 730748

This paper describes and summarizes the tests of an electrically propelled tractor-trailer with power on all axles. The test rig showed superior performance over standard tractor-trailer vehicles of the same size and power on highways, beaches, and hills. It demonstrated that electric propulsion for heavy-duty applications can perform well in on-road and off-road applications. Further, it can be made cost effective by utilizing commercially available electrical equipment.
