It focuses on the power and propulsion systems for these vehicles, including issues related to power and. Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Power Sources, Models, Sustainability, Infrastructure and the Market reviews the performance, cost, safety, and sustainability of battery systems for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs), including nickel-metal hydride batteries and Li-ion batteries.

Hybrid Electrical Vehicles Introduction A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) has two types of energy storage units, electricity and fuel. Electricity means that a battery (sometimes assisted by ultracaps) is used to store the energy, and that an electromotor (from now on called motor) will be used as traction motor.

A SYSTEMS APPROACH TO THE AERODYNAMIC DESIGN OF ELECTRIC AND HYBRID VEHICLES. A typical subcompact ehv, driving an SAE jA D urban cycle, consumes around 35% of its road energy requirement overcoming aerodynamic resistance. The application of an integrated system design approach, where aerodynamic drag reduction is an important design.

This book on hybrid electric vehicles brings out six chapters on some of the research activities through the wide range of current issues on hybrid electric vehicles. When braking or coasting to a stop, the hybrid uses its electric motor (3) as a generator to produce electricity, which is then stored in its battery pack (6).

Unlike all-electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles do not need to be plugged into an external source of electricity. Based on their aerodynamic design, hybrids have a head start in the race for fuel economy. The typical modern automobile has a coefficient of drag (cd) of to —and a light truck commonly.
