HYBRID VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY CONSTRAINTS AND APPLICATION ASSESSMENT STUDY. VOLUME II. SECTIONS 1 THROUGH 4

This four-volume report presents analyses and assessments of both heat engine/battery- and heat engine/flywheel-powered hybrid vehicles to determine if they could contribute to near-term (1980-1990) reductions in transportation energy consumption under several sets of operational conditions: urban driving, highway driving, and stop-start, low-speed delivery service conditions. This second of four volumes contains the first four sections of the full report. It introduces the methods used in the study and the data base employed in simulation modeling of each vehicle powertrain. It also includes a technology review of powertrain components and various hybrid systems developed in recent years.
