The hybrid still maintains dependence on gasoline. The all-electric version needs a clean grid to be considered eco-friendly. The hydrogen is a out of reach price wise and there aren’t many of hydrogen stations now. But for now, the all-electric car is the best alternative to a gasoline powered automobile if you want a practical, effective and a cost reasonable vehicle.
To recharge a completely empty car battery from an 120-volt socket, it takes 10-20 hours. If you use a 240-volt socket, it takes 4-8 hours. Therefore it takes at least 4 hours to fill an empty tank with electricity. Last but not least, the engine of an electric car very quiet while it’s running. This can be an advantage but it can also be a disadvantage.
Hybrid Prius A hybrid car is a car which can run on two or more fuel sources. A Hybrid Prius is a vehicle that is fuel efficient with two motors. At low speed it runs on an electric motor powered by a battery pack, and at higher speed it runs by a gasoline engine. The two engines share work. This helps reduce the amount of gasoline-power energy required to move the car.
The electric motors use no energy during idle, they turn off. At low speeds, electric use less than gas motors. Gas motors do better at high speeds and can deliver more power for a given motor weight. That means during rush hour stop and go driving, the electric motor works great and, as an added benefit, does not produce any exhaust thus reducing smog levels. At higher speeds above 40 mph, the gas motor kicks in and gives that peppy feel so many car owners look for when driving on the highway.
These large batteries contain outlets that are use during recharging. The batteries powered the car providing electricity that let the vehicle function. This is very useful especially when one will run out of diesel or gasoline. The electricity given by these batteries can be a substitute to the diesel and gasoline, for the meantime. When the car stops,or in traffic, the batteries are responsible for supplying energy to the car for the air- condition and for the car’s accessories.
A parallel hybrid car uses both the engine and the electric motor to power the wheels. In a parallel hybrid, the gasoline engine and electric motor work together in parallel to generate the power in the vehicle to move forward. The second hybrid car in the list is a series hybrid car, the electric motor in the does all the work of generating power in the vehicle. While a series hybrid car does have a gasoline powered engine, but the engine does not have a direct conn... ... middle of paper ... ...ill be able to retrieve much more benefit of your investment on a hybrid rather than a gasoline powered engine car. The important feature of a hybrid car is when it comes to a dead stop.
Torque is the force applied at a distance from the pivot. Torque is the twisting force that causes rotation in an automobile (Young, Bennet, 2000, n.p.). Current Event After that, in a hybrid electric vehicle the battery, super capacitor, and flywheel allow the capture and release of energy during startup or braking. A bidirectional multi-port converter can contain those energy storages and sources to combine the vehicles advantages (Kolyubin, Duarte, Hendrix, Paulides, 2012, P.183). This is vital because vehicle electronics improve the environmental performance of motor vehicles (Baron, Maranger Menk, 2012, P.44).
Hybrid Cars There are two configurations for hybrid cars. The first configuration uses gasoline engine to run a generator. The generator supplies electricity to the motor, which drives the wheels, which allows the gasoline engine to run constantly while achieving optimum fuel efficiency. This thereby minimizes emissions owing to incomplete combustion. A hybrid car with parallel configurations uses both an engine and a motor to drive the wheels depending on driving conditions.
This prevents wasted energy from idling. Stop-start : Present on all hybrids, the engine's traditional starter motor is absent because the motor-generator takes on that function, too. Hybrid-control software shuts the engine off while stopped at traffic signals and automatically restarts it again with the electric motor when the driver releases the brake pedal. Eliminating the fuel waste of an idling gas engine causes overall mpg to climb significantly and tailpipe emissions to drop, especially in town. Regenerative braking : An important function of the motor-generator is to generate electricity to recharge the battery as it absorbs a portion of the vehicle's momentum when slowing or coasting downhill.
Electric motor: Serves two purposes in hybrid technology i.e., as motor and as well as generator. For example when serves as motor, used to accelerate the vehicle and when as generator, used to slow down the vehicle and return the power to the vehicle. SOC: SOC stands for State of Charge of the battery and it expresses the available in terms of Percentage of the battery rated capacity. 6. Design Parameter: The Main purpose of Hybrid electric vehicle is to convert the chemical energy from the batteries into mechanical power which is used to drive the vehicle in most efficient and eco friendly manner.
