Abstract:
With shrinking energy reserves, and rising concerns for the environment, the need for clean-burning, fuel-efficient vehicles is greater than ever. The Texas Tech FutureCar project is part of a nationwide effort to develop the car of tomorrow. Texas Tech University has chosen to develop a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) using a Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell as its primary power source. The system includes on-board batteries for energy storage, as well as a 140kW (188hp) dual AC Induction Motor drive system. This paper discusses the design and implementation of the 1998 Texas Tech FutureCar.
