Hybrid Electric Systems for Trucks
Available from BAE Systems HybriDrive
BAE Systems has created a new product in its HybriDrive® family of heavy-duty hybrid electric propulsion systems to address lowering emissions and increasing fuel and energy savings in the vocational truck market. This new system is scalable to meet a wide range of heavy-duty truck platforms, vocations, and duty cycles, allowing us to equip hybrid construction trucks, hybrid utility trucks, hybrid refuse trucks and hybrid delivery trucks.
HybriDrive® Parallel uses both simplified and proven components and controls. The system is based on a single electric machine integrated with the engine and the transmission and can be installed with minimal impact to the vehicle. Propulsion is enhanced through an optimized blending of power from a conventional power source and from the electrical power source. Our hybrid electric truck system’s energy management and control capabilities ensure all energy flow—such as propulsion and braking energy recuperation—occurs in the most efficient fashion, resulting in lower fuel consumption.
