Technology Evolution in Formula Electric and Hybrid Italy
AbstractFormula Electric and Hybrid Italy is an annual international competition among student teams of University and Technical Institutes students, exhibiting and demonstrating vehicles developed by themselves, incorporating innovative technological concepts and solutions for Battery electric, Hybrid and Fuel cell vehicles.
The aims are:
The competitive events offer an overview of the advanced technology and trends in the field of electrically propelled road vehicles.
From the beginning in 2005 the technology achievements in the field of battery, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles have been progressively enriched and contributed to introduce new concepts, solution validation, for hint to industrial development and market indication.
The results, achieved with the contribution of student teams of various European, American and Asian Countries, concern innovations and validation in the field of:
- Hybrid propulsion technology, including “plug-in” operation
- Electric power train, including multiple motors drive and new regenerative braking concept
- Application and management of advanced storage systems, Lithium Batteries and Supercapacitors
- Fuel cell vehicle operation
The operation in team by students on engineering projects, oriented to competition, is a stimulating factor to the innovation and an important element for their technical and cultural formation, in view of their future integration in the industrial world.
