The Hybrid Commercial Vehicle (HCV) project aims to develop urban buses and delivery vehicles with advanced second generation of energy efficient hybrid electric powertrains.
The main objectives in SP6000 are to identify/solve market obstacles with respect to the following aspects:
In SP6000 data from other Sub-Projects will be gathered and used to develop a representative hybrid test cycle. This test cycle will be used to validate the simultaneously developed hybrid test procedure on three types of hybrid vehicles. The validation of the test procedure will be done in a Climate Altitude Chamber at TNO. In this chamber transient testing of both light and heavy duty engines and vehicles can be done according to emission standards.
Heavy-duty vehicle emissions testing in extreme ambient conditions
To enable a secure testing environment, also for high-voltage components like batteries and power converters, the basic security regulations will be merged with best-practice solutions to create a new and comprehensive safety standard for hybrid component and power train test beds. These standards will also help to bring down development costs significantly in the future.
Furthermore an integrated approach is established to enable the exchange of real-time capable simulation models in a fast and secure way between development partners. To enable integrated simulation of new concepts on the developed drive cycles for partners without the need to disclose their intellectual property.
An other task with is this Sub-Project deals obstacles that could work against a successful market introduction of HD-hybrid trucks and buses.
Furthermore three heavy-duty hybrid distribution trucks will be prepared and demonstrated by DAF, 2 in England and 1 in the Netherlands and an early second generation Hybrid bus will be demonstrated in three cities across Europe.
