Computer Simulation of Electric-, Gas Turbine-and Gas Turbine Hybrid Electric Vehicles 941733

Computer simulations of a gas turbine series hybrid electric vehicle, purely electric vehicle and a gas turbine vehicle (with mechanical transmission) have been developed. The simulation results are compared with published results of conventional diesel and diesel-electric passenger cars, on the basis of a common engine type and driving schedule. The gas turbine series hybrid electric vehicle delivers the lowest emissions of all, although its specific fuel consumption (sfc) is higher than that of a diesel electric passenger car; the gas turbine hybrid electric vehicle's performance is however sensitive to the gas turbine size, battery capacity, and control law employed.
