HEV Demonstration Programs

In the ALABC launched a demonstration of its research program in an effort to display the modifications that can be to VRLA batteries to improve performance in hybrid electric (HEVs). In this phase, the batteries are (1) constructed; (2) performance in the laboratory; and (3) evaluated in HEVs in the This process has resulted in demonstration vehicles that been retrofitted with automotive systems featuring lead-acid and lead carbon

The HyBoost Project

In 2009, the partnered with automotive pioneer Ricardo, along Valeo, Controlled Power (CPT), Ford Motor and London’s Imperial College to use cost-effective technologies to build a 1.0 hybrid engine and powertrain could perform at the same of (or better than) a conventional 2.0 system. In a project co-funded by the Technology Strategy Board, the retrofitted a 2.0 liter Ford with a downsized 1.0 liter Ford Fox gasoline engine, a CPT torque electric supercharger a Valeo Starter Alternator System (StARS), a 220 Farad and an extended life flooded battery.

Nearly two years later, the demonstration vehicle displayed test results in comparison the 2.0 liter Focus, with a 39% in CO 2 emissions without loss of performance. Following the test the vehicle was revealed to the general in September 2011 at the Cenex Low Vehicle 2011 (LCV2011) at Rockingham, U.K.

While the was a significant success, the EALABC testing a variety of carbon-enhanced batteries supplied by member as a potential replacement for the super-capacitor. the team determined some of advanced VRLA batteries not only meet the current of the recharge cycle, but also significantly more energy the super-capacitor, the ALABC decided to its own vehicle with these in an attempt to achieve comparable at lower cost.

The LC Super Hybrid

On the heels of the results, the EALABC and CPT decided to German automotive technology AVL Schrick to convert a 1.4 liter Passat TSI with a similar to attempt even better efficiency with optimal The Passat made an ideal vehicle, in part because it was turbo-charged and fitted with technology, but it required some key in order to achieve the desired

For one, the team replaced the integrated starter generator with the CPT SpeedStart ISG for quicker during start/stop events. also decided to replace the 68Ah VRLA battery a 100Ah battery (two 50Ah Orbital High batteries in parallel). This would not only provide the loads (or non-propulsion energy), but capture the recovered or “regen” from the ISG to power the CPT electric which acts to prevent lag and lack of power at low engine (Incidentally, Valeo later the electric supercharger business CPT, indicating the genuine of a “Tier 1” supplier to OEMs – equipment manufacturers – in promoting technology.)

AVL Schrick carried out the vehicle with Mubea supplying the tensioner technology and Provector with the battery management

The resulting 12-volt “LC SuperHybrid” even better than achieving a 7% reduction in CO 2 emissions of the fuel-efficient 1.4 liter Passat vehicle. However, the more comparison is with the 2.0 liter S40, which the 12V LC SuperHybrid outperformed and still improved CO 2 emissions by 26%. The demonstration recorded significant performance while registering a fuel-efficiency of 50.5 miles per gallon a gasoline-powered (rather than engine, proving that technology can offer the benefits of emissions and lower fuel without having to sacrifice performance for the sake of the consumer.

The 12V LC SuperHybrid made its world at the 82 nd International Geneva Motor in Switzerland in March 2012. and has on display at several events in and North America.

Currently, a version of the LC SuperHybrid is under with a targeted launch in 2013.

The Arizona HEV Demonstration

In the U.S. the ALABC partnered ECOtality North America and the Department of Energy to evaluate and the long-range capabilities of lead batteries in HEV duty. ECOtality by evaluating lead carbon 12V designs from both and East Penn, and was able to over 167,000 miles the simulated HEV profile with the Penn batteries. Following the tests, the group retrofitted a Honda Civic HEV with a pack of UltraBatteries for on-road evaluation. This vehicle has completed its baseline characterization and on the test track, and is now commissioned for in the ECOtality test fleet for miles of operation in downtown

In fleet duty, the research expects the demonstration vehicle to log 5,000 miles of road per month under real-world conditions with an ultimate of reaching 100,000 miles by Upon successful completion of testing, the project should not provide additional benchmarking for using the UltraBattery design in HEV applications, but also demonstrate the of lead carbon batteries in partial-state-of-charge HEV operation.
