Transcript of Hybrid Cars
A motor that converts electricity to mechanical work
Uses electrical energy stored in batteries or another energy storage device What Are Hybrid Cars? Conventional Car Uses an internal combustion engine
Has fuel tank, fuel lines, fuel-injection systems, cooling system, and an exhaust system Hybrid Cars By: MinhThao & Vannida Working Together Energy Consumption CONS PROS How They Work How They Work Bibliography Commonly referred to as Hybrid Electric Vehicles
Combination of an Electric Car and a Conventional Car
Vehicle that uses 2 or more power sources
Internal Combustion Engine
Combine the benefits of gasoline engines and electric motors
Maximize fuel savings and minimize carbon emissions Clean energy
Smaller and efficient engine
Periodic engine shut off
Lower fossil fuel dependence
Lighter weight material Low power outlet
Higher center of gravity
High Maintenance Cost The piston compresses the fuel
Ignites it to create explosions that propel the vehicle
Most vehicles use this engine but fuel cells may be used as well Powered by electric motor
Provides extra power to the engine
Electric current in magnetic field will experience force
Several loops on rotor provide uniform torque Hybrids save at least 25% more fuel than non-hybrid cars
Average power consumed: 99.3 KW-/100miles
MPG: 40 - 60 Combine the benefits of gasoline engines and electric motors
Configured to obtain different objectives
Electric Motor automatically enabled at slow speeds
Gas Engine enabled at higher speeds
Can be used in conjunction
Gas used to power battery while driving http://eartheasy.com/move_hybrid_cars.html
