The latest developments in the field of hybrid electric vehicles Hybrid Electric Vehicles provides an introduction to hybrid vehicles, which include purely electric, hybrid electric, hybrid hydraulic, fuel cell vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric, and off-road hybrid vehicular systems. It focuses on the power and propulsion systems for these vehicles, including issues related to power and energy management. Other topics covered include hybrid vs. pure electric, HEV system architecture (including plug-in & charging control and hydraulic), off-road and other industrial utility vehicles, safety and EMC, storage technologies, vehicular power and energy management, diagnostics and prognostics, and electromechanical vibration issues. Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Second Edition is a comprehensively updated new edition with four new chapters covering recent advances in hybrid vehicle technology. New areas covered include battery modelling, charger design, and wireless charging. Substantial details have also been included on the architecture of hybrid excavators in the chapter related to special hybrid vehicles. Also included is a chapter providing an overview of hybrid vehicle technology, which offers a perspective on the current debate on sustainability and the environmental impact of hybrid and electric vehicle technology. Completely updated with new chapters Covers recent developments, breakthroughs, and technologies, including new drive topologies Explains HEV fundamentals and applications Offers a holistic perspective on vehicle electrification Hybrid Electric Vehicles: Principles and Applications with Practical Perspectives, Second Edition is a great resource for researchers and practitioners in the automotive industry, as well as for graduate students in automotive engineering.
This document contains quarterly reports on various aspects of research and testing being conducted concerning electric and hybrid electric vehicle technologies under cooperative agreement MDA972-95-2-0011.
Hybrid Electric Vehicle Technology provides foundational information about vehicles that use more than one propulsion technology to power a drive system. This textbook is filled with technical illustrations and concise descriptions of the different configurations and vehicle platforms, the operation of various systems and the technologies involved, and the maintenance of hybrid electric vehicles. Safety precautions required used when working around high-voltage vehicle systems, especially in emergencies, are highlighted.
The first book on electric and hybrid vehicles (EVs) written specifically for automotive students and vehicle owners Clear diagrams, photos and flow charts outline the charging infrastructure, how EV technology works, and how to repair and maintain hybrid and electric vehicles Optional IMI online eLearning materials enable students to study the subject further and test their knowledge Full coverage of IMI Level 2 Award in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Operation and Maintenance, IMI Level 3 Award in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Repair and Replacement, IMI Accreditation, C&G and other EV/Hybrid courses. The first book on electric and hybrid vehicles (endorsed by the IMI) starts with an introduction to the market, covering the different types of electric vehicle, costs and emissions, and the charging infrastructure, before moving on to explain how hybrid and electric vehicles work. A chapter on electrical technology introduces learners to subjects such as batteries, control systems and charging which are then covered in more detail within their own chapters. The book also covers the maintenance and repair procedures of these vehicles, including fault finding, servicing, repair and first-responder information. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate different technologies.
Fully updated throughout, Electric Vehicle Technology, SecondEdition, is a complete guide to the principles, design andapplications of electric vehicle technology. Including all thelatest advances, it presents clear and comprehensive coverage ofthe major aspects of electric vehicle development and offers anengineering-based evaluation of electric motor scooters, cars,buses and trains. This new edition includes: important new chapters on types of electric vehicles, includingpickup and linear motors, overall efficiencies and energyconsumption, and power generation, particularly for zero carbonemissions expanded chapters updating the latest types of EV, types ofbatteries, battery technology and other rechargeable devices, fuelcells, hydrogen supply, controllers, EV modeling, ancillary systemdesign, and EV and the environment brand new practical examples and case studies illustrating howelectric vehicles can be used to substantially reduce carbonemissions and cut down reliance on fossil fuels futuristic concept models, electric and high-speed trains anddevelopments in magnetic levitation and linear motors an examination of EV efficiencies, energy consumption andsustainable power generation.
