The New Breed of Hybrid Vehicles 810270

Using a combination of test results and computer simulations, power and energy requirements for two vehicle types have been projected. These requirements were separated to be provided by two power sources: one for long-term energy and the other for supplementary power for acceleration. On this basis, it is shown that many combinations of sources may be utilized to meet a particular mission. The accompanying fuel is determined on the basis of available energy density, which depends on both the fuel type and the conversion device.
