TRANSMISSION FOR RESTORING BRAKING ENERGY IN BUSES

ANTRIEBE ZUR BREMSENERGIE-RUECKGEWINNUNG BEI OMNIBUSSEN

Braking energy restoration was effected with two different systems in urban buses. The gyrobus uses a mechanical energy store (flywheel) and the hydrobus a bladder store which uses oil as a working medium. The advantages of both systems are, together with a saving in fuel of up to 25 percent compared with the standard bus, reduced environmental pollution by exhaust fumes and improved output. The recently developed transmission are hydrostatic drives with mechanical power branching. The results of trials are expected this year. (TRRL)
