Combined hybrid. Combined hybrid systems have features of both series and parallel hybrids. They incorporate power-split devices allowing for power paths from the engine to the wheels that can be either mechanical or electrical. The main principle behind this system is the decoupling of the power supplied by the engine ... from the power demanded by the driver.

CONT

In a series hybrid-electric vehicle all energy supplied by the non-reversible source (combustion engine or fuel cell) is converted into electricity. The wheels are always driven by the electric motor ... In a parallel hybrid-electric vehicle most of the mechanical energy supplied by the combustion engine is transferred to the wheels by a mechanical transmission. In addition or alternatively ... the wheels are also driven by the electric motor ... A combined hybrid combines characteristics of the two configurations described above.

CONT

Hybride à dérivation de puissance : [...] La puissance délivrée par le moteur thermique suit deux chemins distincts : l'un mécanique, l'autre électrique [...] Comme dans le cas de l'hybride parallèle, cette architecture offre la possibilité d'un mode de fonctionnement 100 % électrique.

OBS

hybride série/parallèle : Ce terme est plus ou moins approprié pour désigner la notion dont il est question, car l'élément «série/parallèle» devrait qualifier le type de configuration des moteurs et non le véhicule lui-même.

Key term(s)
