Sample text

Much of the technology to produce such vehicles has been developed and the cost, currently high in many cases, is likely to drop with increasing demand, which will allow quantity production. This has certainly proved true already in the case of the lithium ion battery. The following chapters describe the key technologies that are the basis of EVs now and in the future: batteries and other energy stores (Chapter 3), fuel cells (Chapter 5), hydrogen supply (Chapter 6) and electric motors (Chapter 7).

Although they can do this, the amount of energy they can store is currently rather small. In other words, although they have a good power density, they have a poor energy density. The principle of the flywheel and the supercapacitor are considered in more detail in Chapter 3. A novel EV using a flywheel as an energy storage device was designed by British engineer John Parry. The vehicle is essentially a tram in which the flywheel is speeded up by an electric motor. Power to achieve this is supplied when the tram rests while picking up passengers at one of its frequent stations.

In rechargeable hybrids the battery can also be charged from mains electricity can be driven either by the engine working directly through a transmission system, or by one or more electric motors working via the transmission or coupled directly to the wheels – or both by the electric motor and the IC engine at once. There are different arrangements for the parallel hybrid system. 3 Parallel hybrid vehicle layout.
