Model of a Hydraulic Hybrid Vehicle with Regenerative Suspensions
This paper explains the basic principles of hydraulic hybrid vehicles. A brief overview of the most recently
published papers in this area was made. The basic models of hydraulic hybrid vehicles are shown and explained: parallel,
series and power-split hydraulic hybrid vehicle. A new series hydraulic hybrid vehicle model with a regenerative hydraulic
suspension system is also presented. The idea is that the vibration energy of the vehicle is utilized through the regenerative
hydraulic suspension for obtaining electric power for the drive of the auxiliary equipment of the vehicle. The regenerative
hydraulic suspension system with all its basic elements is presented and explained in more detail for a better understanding
of this energy harvesting system.
