A DIESEL-ELECTRIC HYBRID BUS

A diesel-electric hybrid bus has been developed at the University of Florida. The drive system is a series hybrid with two lead-acid batteries and a diesel-driven three phase alternator. It was designed with the aid of a computer simulation program, and has undergone three evaluation phases since the initial construction phase. All results to date have confirmed the feasibility of the system including apparent significant advantages in the areas of exhaust emissions and fuel consumption. /SAE/
