Proposed combination : -
Small Electric Motor/Alternator to operate around neutral
- Freewheeling Hydraulic Pump/Motor for efficient recycling of the braking energy and
to allow the engine
to operate only at its maximum efficiency conditions.
- The engine is always
running at full load with a 30 % efficiency, or is stopped
We can expect an average Engine + Transmission efficiency > 20 %.
