Abstract:

There are three distinct requirements for Military Energy Storage Starting, Lighting and Ignition - Batteries provide electric power to start the vehicle power generation Engines APUs Hybrid Vehicle Boost Acceleration and Regenerative Braking Energy Capture - In hybrid vehicle powertrains, batteries have the ability to supplement main engine power for burst accelerations. In addition, batteries can be used to recover wasted energy in vehicle braking Silent Watch - Batteries can provide the energy storage capability to power mission equipment with main engine off while the vehicle is stationary
