Transcript of Hybrid Technology
Solar Powered Hybrids
type of electric vehicle completely or significantly powered by the sun
solar panels convert the sun's energy into electric energy
the solar energy typically only powers propulsion, not other functions of the vehicle
not sold for practical day-to-day use
What is a Hybrid Vehicle?
uses two or more types of power
most common type: electric and gas
other types: hydrogen, solar power
Electric and Gas Hybrids Continued
By Matthew and Jasmine
a dab will do ya
Electric and Gas
Regenerative Braking: When a car is braking or slowing down, a motor collects the energy that is usually wasted and stores it into a battery.
Electric Motor Drive/Assist: The electric motor provides extra power to assist the engine in accelerating or hill climbing.
Automatic Start/Shutoff. Automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle stops and restarts it when the accelerator is pressed. This prevents wasted energy from idling.
vehicle that uses hydrogen as its fuel
the conversion of hydrogen to fuel can be achieved through a few methods:
can be burned in an internal combustion engine
can be reacted with oxygen within a fuel cell, a device that converts chemical energy into electricity
hydrogen fuel can be produced through renewable sources, but this is an expensive process
is an electric vehicle that uses rechargeable batteries that can be recharged by plugging it in to an external source of electric power (like a wall socket)
shares the characteristics of both a conventional hybrid electric vehicle and an all-electric vehicle (has electric motor, internal combustion engine, but also needs to be plugged in)
