Hybrid Electric Vehicle Technology:

Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) combines two or more energy sources to provide vehicle mobility. Typically these sources are an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and an electric motor powered by batteries, merging the best features of today's combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles. The combination allows the electric motor and batteries to help the conventional engine operate more efficiently, cutting down on fuel use. Meanwhile, the ICE overcomes the limited driving range of an electric vehicle. In the end, this hybridization provides the ability to drive 500 miles or more using less fuel and never having to plug in for recharging. HEVís provide the ability to achieve the following towards improving fuel economy and performance:

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) offer the third source of energy (Electric Grid) allowing the battery to be charged when vehicle is not in use. A Fuel Cell can also replace the ICE as a power source and thus be called FC-PHEV

HEVs with ICE are among a select few vehicle technologies that can provide dramatically increased fuel economy and extremely low levels of smog-forming and cancer causing emissions, while delivering the safety, reliability and performance the public has come to expect. The ICE can operate using conventional fuels (Gasoline and Diesel), Bio Fuels, CNG, LPG and other Alternate Fuels, and Hydrogen which produces water vapor in tailpipe emissions and almost no other pollutants.

But that all depends on how well automakers apply the technology. All HEVís are not equal as Technical Ingenuity matters. Engineers can customize the drive systems for specific vehicle applications and duty cycles for both On-Road/Off-Road Civilian/Military Vehicles.

HEVTC Mission:

Address all the above by providing the following key components:
  • Develop and Deliver Short Courses for Professional Development of Engineers and other Technical Professionals in the industry, or aspiring to enter the vehicle industry, and all other persons who need to acquire the knowledge about the HEVís.
  • Provide face to face instructional delivery to the extent possible in small class size environment and hands-on learning experience for optimum learning effectiveness.
  • Provide Research and Consulting support to the vehicle industry and others as needed.
