Abstract:
After 14 years of testing my own electric/hybrid design and extensive studies of more than 50 hybrid systems used in the two hybrid challenge programs apparently the parallel hybrid can double the fuel consumption of the internal combustion engine used alone The series hybrid is abandoned for this paper as it appears that the maximum MPG achieved was 40Accomplishments of Ballard Technology's PEM Fuel Cell I believe signals the end of the IC engine early in the 21st century This paper presents a near term solution to the inefficient IC engine and will approach or exceed the 80 MPG goal of the super car program Ultra-lite construction, quick charge batteries and high tech electronics, integrated and matched to achieve maximum efficiencyThis paper also explores new power sources that will make a total electric drive system possible early in the 21st century
