Generate As You Brake in Gas-Fueled Cars
Division:Health Sciences
Abstract:An innovative concept of applying electric regenerative braking in existing gas-fueled cars is proposed. Different electric braking techniques - Resistive, Plugging and Regenerative, are evaluated. Regenerative braking is implemented to prevent the loss of car’s kinetic energy as frictional heat, and save it as energy in capacitors for other applications. This novel scheme has potential to decrease world’s fuel consumption and emission of greenhouse gases.
