UTILIZATION OF ENERGY LOST IN BRAKING

ISPOLZOVANIE ENERGII, POGASHAEMOI V TORMOZAKY

The paper describes a 'recuperative' brake system, so-called because energy derived from braking is retained to assist subsequent acceleration. Such a device lends itself well to vehicles making frequent stops and starts like buses. In a test vehicle using a recuperative brake system, acceleration to 19 miles per hour was achieved with only half the fuel normally required. (Author)
