Design of a Hybrid Power Plant for City Buses
AbstractThis paper presents a preliminary system design for a no-emission hybrid power plant for city buses working in a “dense grid” transportation network with short, regular stop spacing.
The vehicle is driven by two electric motors powered by a hybrid unit composed of a fuel cell and flywheel energy storage system that takes into account the characteristics of urban routes.
The advantages and disadvantages of flywheel technology on board a vehicle are examined and discussed and an in-depth study of the proposed hybrid architecture was performed by analyzing and measuring the main power components for a small sized city bus with a 15 passenger capacity.
