The Advantages of Cars With Hybrid Plant

By: Paul
1. Thrifty exploitation.

Thrifty exploitation is the main advantage of hybrid cars. To achieve it, it was necessary to seek a balance that is to balance all the technical indices of car, while retaining all useful parameters of traditional car, its power, speed, ability to rapid acceleration and many other very important characteristics embodied in modern cars. Moreover the ability to accumulate energy including not to waste kinetic energy of motion during braking, to charge the batteries in addition to the basic obvious advantages, brought some side-car small joy. For example less wear and tear of brake pads.

The way to savings:

- declining volume and engine power;

- engine's work in optimal and equal treatment to a lesser depending on driving conditions;

- full stop of the engine when its necessary;

- the possibility of motion only using electric motors;

- regenerative braking to the battery charging.

This system is so difficult that is made possible only in modern conditions, using fairly complex algorithms of onboard computer work. Even the correct and effective (in terms of security) braking is controlled by onboard computer.

2. Pollution-free.

Reducing consumption of hydrocarbon fuels immediately impact on environmental purity. Full engine stop in the cars crowding places on the roads of cities, particularly in traffic jams, has the primary role. Applying the batteries much less capacity than in electric vehicles reduced the problem of disposal of used batteries. The development of hybrid technology in public transport and for trucks will further improve the ecological environment of cities.

3. Good rolling characteristics.

Now there is no need to install the engine in peak rate of exploitation. At a time when you need a sharp strengthening of the traction load electric and the usual engine (and in some models an additional electric motor also) both are included in the work at the same time. This helps to save on the installation of less powerful internal combustion engine operating in the most favorable mode. Such a transfer and stockpiling of power followed by rapid use allows the use of hybrid cars of sport class and off-roadsters. Despite the fact that electric motors have a strong enough torque in terms of weight and dimensions of the engine compared to other engines the developers still in a number of models do not set too powerful electric motors reducing their size. In summation capacity aims it applying combined torque transfer schemes with direct mechanical torque transfer directly from the engine. Such a scheme called "joint hybrid-drive".

4. Mileage range increasing.

Time is the most valuable resource for humans. Excluding a half trips to the gas stations and even larger number of such trips while driving through the city a car frees up some time for other big and important cases.

5. The preservation and reuse of energy

The main drawback engine on hydrocarbon fuels eliminated. It's the inability to return power back into hydrocarbon fuels. Transport engineers tried to save energy during braking motion for its reuse. For example special constructions with a large flywheel were used. But only electric power is possible to save with the most minimal casualties. Batteries and special capacitors are used as storage.

6. Regular fuel

Electric cars have one big drawback. It's the need to charge the battery. The process is long lasting and requires a specially charge equipped item. Thus it becomes unfit for long-term and long-distance travel. But it's already developed technologies to charge the lithium-ion batteries with electrodes up to 80% capacity for 5-15 minutes.

A repaired that shortcoming. Filling is carried out on the customary pattern with conventional hydrocarbon fuel when necessary and further movement can be continued immediately.

In the urban cycle hybrid car works in electric mode 80% of the time. In February 2006 motorists from the U.S. were able to hack an electronic management system of Toyota Prius and learned to forcibly change the mode of car to electric. French company PSA Peugeot Citroen will begin serial production of hybrid versions of Peugeot 307 and Citroen C4 by 2010. Only electric motor works in hybrid cars at speeds less than 50 m / h. The driver may turn on electric mode at any time.
