  • TITLE: Lethe@-Udr1 Passenger Sedan Final Proposed Configuration

    AUTHORS: Roberto Capata

    KEYWORDS: Hybrid Vehicle, Passenger Sedan, Components Distribution, Degree of Hybridization, VMU Logic

    JOURNAL NAME: Journal of Transportation Technologies, Vol.1 No.4, October 24, 2011

    ABSTRACT: For years the interest of the UDR1 researcher group has been focused on the development of a Hybrid Series (HS) vehicle, different from the standard one, using a Gas Turbine (GT) set as a thermal engine. The reason of this choice resides in the opportunity to reduce weight and dimension, in comparison to a traditional In- ternal Combustion Engine (ICE). It’s not possible to use the GT engine directly for the vehicle traction, so the UDR1 HS configuration shows the GT set connected with the electric generator only. The result is that the traction is pure electric. Many efforts are spent in the definition of a generic scientific method to define the correct ratio HD (the Hybridization Degree) between the installed power of the battery pack and that of the GT electric generator which simultaneously guarantee the main life for the battery package and the ca- pacity of the vehicle to complete a common mission (about 15 km - 30 km) without lack of energy or stop. This paper reports all studies carried out and finally proposes a possible configuration (weight distribution, VMU logic control, GT dimensions and power rate, battery package characteristics and so on) for mid term solution in the Italian transport system.
