INCREASED FUEL ECONOMY IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS BY USE OF ENERGY MANAGEMENT - SECOND YEAR'S PROGRAM. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Design and analytic evaluation of experimental vehicles equipped with a flywheel energy management powerplant (FEMP) are covered. Development of modeling techniques that permit the accurate prediction of transient emissions from an automobile over any driving cycle are discussed. A limited investigation of the fuel-saving potential of relatively straightforward changes to transmissions and drivetrain systems is included.
