Flybrid to present latest developments in emissions reducing technology at CTI Berlin Transmission Symposium
Energy Recovery System (ERS) for heavy duty vehicles to feature at international conference
Flybrid will present papers on its innovative, emissions reducing technology at the 15th International CTI Symposium in Berlin on Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives (5th -8th December).
Richard Dunne, Business Development Manager, will present the technical characteristics and validation details of Flybrid’s energy recovery system in a paper, entitled ‘Proven flywheel ERS fuel economy improvement in heavy duty vehicle applications’.
“Since our last ERS presentation in December 2015, extensive service trials of a bus equipped with the flywheel system have independently confirmed that fuel economy improvements in excess of 10 percent can be achieved,” said Dunne. “We have now developed a similar module that can be applied to a variety of off-highway vehicles, such as excavators, wheel loaders, forklift trucks and reach stackers, to yield even greater fuel savings by capturing energy that is normally wasted during cyclic operations.”
Dunne’s presentation will include details of both the bus and off-highway applications of the technology, in the case of the bus summarising the system engineering, its installation and the results obtained. In respect of the off-highway application, Dunne will outline the architecture of the energy recovery system and detail the short payback times that can be achieved.
Dunne will present the ERS paper at 12:15 on December 6th.
