FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS OF THE TRANSMISSION FOR A FLYWHEEL/HEAT ENGINE HYBRID PROPULSION SYSTEM

A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO QUANTITATIVELY ASSESS THE PRACTICALITY, FROM BOTH A PERFORMANCE AND COST VIEWPOINT, OF A TRANSMISSION THAT WILL MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF A FLYWHEEL/HEAT ENGINE HYBRID PROPULSION SYSTEM FOR A FAMILY CAR. THE SCOPE OF THE STUDY INCLUDED: CONSIDERATION OF VARIOUS TYPES OF FEASIBLE TRANSMISSIONS; SELECTION OF CANDIDATE TRANSMISSION, DETAILED PERFORMANCE AND CONTROLS ANALYSIS OF THE CANDIDATE TRANSMISSION; AND LASTLY, A DETAILED COST ANALYSIS OF THE TRANSMISSION. THE HEAT ENGINE CONSIDERED IN THE STUDY WAS A STANDARD INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE TYPICALLY USED IN PRESENT-DAY, MEDIUM SIZED, FAMILY CARS. /AUTHOR/
