Influence of Short-Circuit Valve on Hydraulic Recovery of Vehicle Kinetic Energy
The present paper deals with one of possibilities how to improve the efficiency of recovery processes using the experimental road roller AMMANN AP 240 H. The recovery of braking kinetic energy can significantly contribute to fuel consumption lowering of heavy horse vehicles working in start-stop regime. The paper presents and evaluates the results of parallel measurements performed on the experimental vehicle.
