Der Elektromotor im Hybridfahrzeug: Vergleich von drei by Harald Petschnik

By Harald Petschnik

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Elektrotechnik, word: sehr intestine, Campus02 Fachhochschule der Wirtschaft Graz, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Hybridtechnologie wird von Experten in der Automobilbranche, als die Schlüsseltechnologie der nächsten Jahrzehnte gehandelt. Viele namhafte Automobilhersteller richten ihren concentration von Forschung und Entwicklung auf diese aufstrebende Technologie. Der Vorteil des Hybridfahrzeuges liegt in der Elektrifizierung des Antriebstrangs. Durch intelligente Kombination von Verbrennungs- und Elektromotor können die jeweiligen Vorteile der unterschiedlichen Antriebsarten genutzt werden. Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Betrachtung der Rolle des
Elektromotors im Hybridfahrzeug. Die Anforderungen an den Elektromotor sowie drei unterschiedliche Elektromotorentypen, die in serienreifen Automobilen bzw. Neuentwicklungen zum Einsatz kommen, werden hinsichtlich Aufbau, Wirkungsweise und Wirtschaftlichkeit untersucht. Um einen direkten Vergleich der drei unterschiedlichen Motorentypen hinsichtlich ihrer functionality zu erhalten, wurden diese in einem jeweils baugleichen Go-Kart getestet. Die Auswertung der Testergebnisse ergab, dass die Synchronmaschine mit Permanentmagneten, unter Berücksichtigung des Bewertungskriteriums elektrischer Wirkungsgrad, knapper Testsieger vor der geschalteten Reluktanzmaschine wurde. Der Wirkungsgrad des Elektromotors leistet einen hohen Beitrag zum Gesamtwirkungsgrad des Fahrzeuges. Das Testergebnis bestätigte die Auswahl der
Synchronmaschine, für den elektrisch effizientesten Elektroantrieb im Hybridfahrzeug.

Simplified LRFD Bridge Design by Jai B. Kim,Robert H. Kim,Jonathan Eberle

By Jai B. Kim,Robert H. Kim,Jonathan Eberle

Developed to conform with the 5th variation of the AASHTO LFRD Bridge layout Specifications [2010]––Simplified LRFD Bridge layout is "How To" use the requirements e-book. so much engineering books make the most of conventional deductive practices, starting with in-depth theories and progressing to the appliance of theories. The inductive procedure within the ebook makes use of replacement ways, actually instructing backwards. The publication introduces subject matters by means of proposing particular layout examples. Theories may be understood through scholars simply because they seem within the textual content in basic terms after particular layout examples are offered, constructing the necessity to understand theories.

The emphasis of the booklet is on step by step layout systems of road bridges through the LRFD strategy, and "How to take advantage of" the AASHTO requisites to unravel layout problems.

Some of the layout examples and perform difficulties coated include:

  • Load combos and cargo factors

  • Strength restrict states for superstructure design

  • Design reside Load HL- 93

  • Un-factored and Factored layout Loads

  • Fatigue restrict kingdom and fatigue lifestyles; provider restrict State

  • Number of layout lanes

  • Multiple presence issue of stay load

  • Dynamic load allowance

  • Distribution of stay a lot in step with Lane

  • Wind quite a bit, Earthquake Loads

  • Plastic second ability of composite steel-concrete beam

  • LRFR Load Rating

Simplified LRFD Bridge layout is a research advisor for engineers getting ready for the PE exam in addition to a school room textual content for civil engineering scholars and a reference for working towards engineers. 8 layout examples and 3 perform difficulties describe and introduce using articles, tables, and figures from the AASHTO LFRD Bridge layout standards. at any time when articles, tables, and figures in examples seem during the textual content, AASHTO LRFD specification numbers also are mentioned, in order that clients can cross-reference the material.
