The need for cheaper using less costly energy is not just a necessity but a mandatory goal for the engineers to achieve. The increasing cost of fuel price and other energy sources are now a concern to the engineers.
Since the introduction of , the belief that it will soon displace the gasoline remain unfulfilled based on some specific reasons. The gasoline still claim superior to , even the modern electric vehicles despite the availability of strong accumulators that can last long after charging to power the vehicles for a considerable duration of time.
The , however, remain the major hope for based on global acceptance and support it has obtained so far. The effect of global warming caused by the damage of the ozone layer due to the excessive release of carbon monoxide and other harmful gases are part of the reasons that experts are calling for and other that could help reduce the excessive gases coming from the Gasoline especially that of .
Though there are vehicles currently running on electric power from accumulators, they are not readily available in all the countries in the globe based on the perceived difficulty in running them in such places. An will need recharge stations at every suitable kilometer distance just as the gasoline need filling stations. The challenge of good roads, stable , cost of purchase, cost of maintenance, availability of parts, availability of its maintenance technicians and among other reasons may be the reason are yet to dominate most countries automobile markets.
To make it simple and easier to market the modern vehicles, some automobile manufacturers introduced the hybrid electric vehicles known as the HEVs. The HEVs are stable, reliable, and roomier than just electric cars. They are cars made with two options of running on an electric power supply or running on the gasoline .
In the HEVs, there is less need to carry as many heavy batteries as ordinary would carry. The is few while the gasoline in them is small but strongly built for high power out and . Some of the HEVs had been found to be lighter in weight and runs faster than both pure and pure gasoline of the same model.
Due to the efficiency of , most modern vehicles are now converted to their model. A good feature of HEV is the ability to change from gasoline power output to electric power output based the speed and momentum needed from it at any given interval while driving it.
Most of the modern trains, , giant mining , and private , etc. are . The concept makes it easier to reduce fuel consumption, increase efficiency, save the ozone layer, and reduce the environmental caused by excess gasoline .
THE HISTORY OF
It became popular within the year 1997 when the first model of was sold by Toyota Prius in Japan. Shortly afterward, the race for vehicles became popular. Two years later, the United States saw its first sale of a from . The two popular vehicles quickly dominated the automobile market as vehicles. Shortly afterward, the Civic marked a radical change in the type of being offered to the public.
Since the first, second, and third models and brands of entered into the automobile market, there had been a significant increase in the number of vehicles ranging from small to the biggest, even in trains, and giant vehicles.
Nothing else could have made the technology possible if not for quality batteries discovered recently. The new models of accumulators comprise of materials that can store very high voltage and be able to discharge the energy at a significant time interval such that electric motors that could move the vehicle can run for hours without failure.
Some hybrid are made in a way that, the battery will be charging when the vehicle is running at high speed, while the engine stops operating when the speed slows down especially when driving on the streets or when on a holdup terrain at that time, the vehicle will be running with electric motors powered by the in it.
HOW (HEV) WORKS
As a vehicle that combines an with one or more electric motor or generator and a pack, its operations are fully . In other words, most of the vehicles automatically switch between the gasoline and the without any input from the driver.
It combines a propulsion system with RESS and gets better fuel economy
An HEV uses less gasoline because the electric motor does some of the
A will start and accelerate with a gasoline , when the reaches an average speed on the highway, it can still be running with the gasoline until it starts to decelerate. During deceleration and low-speed , the gasoline automatically or manually goes off, allowing the to power the electric motors in the so that they can move the while running slowly.
Majority of the modern can run at for a considerable duration of time while using the for places where acceleration and/or momentum is needed. The of this category is nothing short from a completely electric vehicle.
Fuel efficiency and reliable still remain the major objective of vehicles manufacturers.
When starting the HEV, the typically powers all accessories and also helps to power the starter kit. The in the HEVs is usually larger, lighter, and stores up more energy than the used to start conventional vehicles.
At speeds above mid-range, where momentum is needed, both the engine and electric motor are used to propel the vehicle. During the period, the gasoline engine provides power to the drive-train directly and to the electric motor through the generator. The same occurs when heavy acceleration or additional power is needed, both the internal combustion engine and the electric motors are used to power the vehicle.
During regenerative braking, converts wasted energy from braking into electricity and stores it in a . During the instance, the electric motor is reversed so that instead of using electricity to run the wheels, the rotating wheels turn the motor and create electricity. Using energy from the wheels turn the motor slows the vehicle down.
When the vehicle is stopped such as red light, the gasoline and electric motor shut off automatically so that energy is not wasted idling. All other systems including the electric air conditioning may continue to run.
