Energy Consumption Analysis and Vehicle Power Demand

  • Xiaohua Zeng
  • Jixin Wang


Energy saving technology is one of the most important research directions in the automotive industry [1, 2, 3, 4]. For the major auto companies, it has significant influence to develop new products, enhance competitiveness and own their initiative in the market. In this chapter, on one hand, the actual vehicle energy consumption characteristics are analyzed with the visual graphics. On the other hand, the guidance about how the hybrid vehicle can save energy by the hybrid technology is given. On the basis of the above analysis, a practical solution based on the acceleration capability is proposed to calculate vehicle power demand directly.
