HYDRAULIC ACCUMULATORS FOR HYBRID AUTOMOBILES AND TRANSPORT VEHICLES

A final report is given covering a three-month effort to study and document mechanical energy storage through the use of hydraulic accumulators for hybrid automobiles and transport vehicles. The study covered the energy storage capacity range of 0.06 to 2.5 KWh formation provided by the study includes an estimate of energy storage densities, power densities and efficiencies which are achievable, both for near-term and future applications. In addition, a driveability criteria is defined and an estimate of presently obtainable performance (58 mpg urban, 38 mpg suburban) for a 3220 lb (100 slug) automobile was developed.
