Hybrid and Electric Systems R&D at DOE: Fiscal Year 2011-2012 Status
AbstractThis paper presents an overview of the recent highlights and accomplishments, for fiscal years (FYs) 2011- 2012, by the hybrid and electric systems (HES) R&D Team at the Vehicle Technologies Program (VTP) Office of the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Office. There is significant U.S. commitment to HES R&D and additional responsibilities were assigned under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, an economic stimulus package from the 111th United States Congress. DOE has supported the development of HES technologies, including advanced automotive energy storage technologies, power electronics and electric machines, and simulation and testing tools, over the long term. This support has involved leveraging resources and expertise from automobile manufacturers, battery, motor, and electronics developers, small businesses, national laboratories, and universities to address the technical barriers which prevent the market introduction of vehicles which would use those advanced technologies. The HES R&D Team has had many significant accomplishments and continues to advance the state of the art for many technologies. This paper provides a discussion of the most recent highlights and a description of R&D coordination efforts with other government agencies in associated areas.
