Information about the hybrid engine and hybrid vehicles when looking at gasoline prices can one in the today’s time quickly anxious are because of petrol prices have risen disproportionately in recent years. This development has resulted in that rethinking has taken place also by the automobile manufacturers. The trend toward hybrid vehicles. What are hybrid cars? For vehicles two different drive types are combined with hybrid drive. As a result hybrid is the drive. Normally, this a waste are an internal combustion engine. The battery of the electric motor loads up again when the driver to roll out the car or brakes. Hybrid vehicles can be distinguished by full hybrid, mild hybrid or micro-hybrid.
At the full hybrid, most energy can be saved while in city traffic, but also the development costs are highest. On the mild-hybrid electric motor and storage batteries are less set and the journey time with pure electric drive is limited, for the development costs are correspondingly lower. Especially for small car is interesting micro-hybrid technology. They have a small electric motor and can by stopping of the motor, automatic start stop system and regenerative braking systems save up to 15% energy. The hybrid drive established hybrid bikes now also in the bicycle market.
The best known hybrid-powered are the Pedelec and the electric bike. Although both bicycle models on the pedals and a supporting electric motor be operated, there are significant differences. In contrast to the electric bicycle, the Pedelec can be operated not only by the electric motor. The Pedelec must be experienced so always in the pedals, then turns the electric pedal support added. Electric Bicycle the rider can also give gas without pedaling to”. How does the hybrid? According to the UN definition, at least two energy converters and two energy storage devices must be installed in a hybrid vehicle. Examples of energy converters are petrol, diesel electric motors, while, for example, a battery or a fuel tank are responsible for the energy storage. The individual engines can at the hybrid either parallel (together) or serial (individually) work together. Parallel means that both engines together affect the part to be moved, while serial collaboration on the part to be moved has only one motor and the other provides only performance. At city or storage drives is toggled automatically on electric operation, while again will be converted to the more powerful combustion drive at higher temperatures. Benefits of hybrid vehicles more efficient electric drive in city traffic high fuel savings no energy consumption in the stand (electric mode) no direct emissions (electricians) normal power in combustion mode (motorway) disadvantages of hybrid vehicles high cost high complexity higher curb weight (battery) conclusion it is only in the future show, what technology makes the race for the cleanest and most fuel efficient car. In terms of economy, the hybrid vehicle currently not yet with the diesel engine can keep, since this a significantly longer life time than the battery which has hybrid vehicles. Nevertheless, the hybrid vehicle is today, especially for city driving, a serious and good alternative.
