Mechanical hybrid paper to challenge conventional thinking at SAE Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress (Oct 6th)   Print  
Torotrak?s full-toroidal traction drive is the vital link between the flywheel energy store and the base powertrain Wednesday, 7th October 2009

New approach based on F1 technology claims lower cost solution than electric hybrid powertrains, with smaller package and simplified integration

As manufacturers strive to reduce CO2 emissions from buses and urban commercial vehicles, numerous trials have been carried out using electric hybrid powertrains with regenerative braking. Such systems have a significant cost penalty; in some cases doubling the cost of the base vehicle. At the SAE Commercial Vehicle Congress on October 6-7, full-toroidal traction drive specialist, Torotrak, will present a paper advocating a more cost effective approach using flywheel hybrid technology based on the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) developed for F1 racing. As well as saving cost, the system is claimed to offer more than 30 percent fuel saving over the London bus test cycle and to package around the existing transmission.
