HYBRID VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY CONSTRAINTS AND APPLICATION ASSESSMENT STUDY. VOLUME III. SECTIONS 5 THROUGH 9

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 third of four volumes contains five sections. Sections 5 and 6 discuss the vehicle powertrain characteristics and the characteristics of the stationary generating plants. Section 7 describes physical and performance characteristics imposed on the hybrid vehicle. Section 8 describes computer programs developed for the analysis and Section 9 discusses results of the powertrain component sizing analysis.
