Abstract:
This paper proposes the Off-cycle credit alternative test methodology for Semi-transparent solar panel integrated on Automobile roof glass to achieve the CO2 credits from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) & the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Manufactures offer the option to put solar cells on the roof of a vehicle for reducing cabin ambient temperature. However, Hyundai Motors develops the semi-transparent solar roof with a controller to provide electric energy for vehicles. This electrical energy cannot be accounted for on the current EPA cycles either the two cycle test or the five-cycle test. Therefore, the manufacture has to establish the methodology based on solar system for vehicles. In order to improve the efficiency of our solar system and to calculate reduced CO2 emission, we studied useable solar energy in driving condition other than peak power in standard test condition(@ 25℃, 1Sun). We were also considered electrical flow at a real driving cycle for calculating fuel consumption between alternator and battery. The analysis of driver's big data supports to enhance the reliability of solar system. Finally, we expect that our solar system and Off-cycle credit alternative test methodology will contribute automobile industry to reduce CO2 emission
