Abstract:

The primary objective of this work is to demonstrate improved fuel economy of a M1078-A1R vehicle through the application of hybrid hydraulic technology. A secondary objective is to evaluate ways that hybrid hydraulic technology may be applied to benefit ancillary vehicle functions and enhance the mission usefulness of the vehicle. A hybrid hydraulic drivetrain was designed, developed, and integrated into a M1079-A1R vehicle.
