Classifications of the Hybrid ElectricVehicles
The hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) are the special types of vehicles that make use of twothings together, i.e. conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electricpropulsion system, which together help in achieving fuel efficiency as compared to any other vehicle. The degree of efficiency and improvement provided by the HEVs depend on thedegree and the type of propulsion systems they make use of. The engineers have succeeded inadding several additional features such as special breaking etc. for making sure that these vehicles provide high fuel efficiency and effectiveness.The HEVs are being widely used all over the world and its usage will keep increasing every day. There are various ways in which these vehicles can be classified and these classificationsare all discussed below.One common way of classifying the hybrid electric vehicles is on the basis of the power that issupplied to the drive-train of the vehicle. The first vehicle is known as the parallel hybrid, wherein the wheel gets special power from the ICE, as well as the electric motor that are bothconnected to the mechanical transmission. These parallel hybrid cars are shown to be muchmore efficient than the ones that are non-hybrid and are suitable for highway and urban styleusage and running.There is another series of vehicles known as the series hybrids, wherein only the electricmotor is used for supplying power to the drive-train. The batteries are shown to berechargeable. These cars are less efficient than the parallel hybrid cars but still give extremely high performance when used in cities. The combination of the parallel and series cars canalso be used for increasing the overall efficiency. These cars are called the power-split

hybrids. Though they are slightly more costly than the other cars, they also demonstratehigher efficiency. While the earlier discussed classification was based on the source of power supply, there isanother classification that is based on the degree of hybridization that is included in thedesign. One type of devices can be full hybrid in nature. These vehicles are also known asstrong hybrid and are usually operated based only on the engine. The drive-train is shown todemonstrate extremely high flexibility and high power output. The vehicles can also beclassified as mild hybrid, wherein the electric motor is the only source of functioning for thecars. Not only do they provide fuel savings but are also more compact in nature.Thus, we see that there are different types of HEVs that are used by the people. The natureand the type of HEV that is used, depend on the requirements of the person and the costsavings and fuel efficiency that is desired.
