Title: Hybrid vehicle for fuel economy

Abstract

The relative advantages of a spark ignition engine/electric hybrid power system for automobiles are discussed. The hybrid system proposed consists of a small internal combustion engine, an electric motor/generator (one unit), an energy storage device, a drivetrain, and controls which allow the system to be operated in any of six modes. Dynamometer tests were made on a 4-cylinder engine coupled to a 40hp industrial shunt motor. The test engine included an exhaust gas recirculation system, and other measures were taken to reduce HC, CO, and NOx emissions. Fuel economy and efficiency were also determined from computer calculations. (PMA)
