ABSTRACT

The paper presents a hydraulic system used for the recovery kinetic energy from the
road motor vehicle in the braking phases and using it, in the acceleration phases, in
order to energy saving of the motor vehicles. All the system is conceived like a
mechatronics system, for the medium and heavy motor vehicles. The hydraulic system
allows the extrapolation to different sizes of vehicles and can be mounted on new motor
vehicles, as well as old cars, in the framework of rehabilitation actions. The energy
recovery hydraulic system contains a hydro-mechanic subsystem, an electronics
subsystem and an informatic subsystem. The implementation of the kinetic energy
recovering hydraulic system on one motor vehicle transforms it in a hybrid vehicle and
leads to decreasing of the fuel consumption and to reduce the gas emissions. Using the
energy recovery system will increase energy efficiency of the vehicles and will be
reduce the negative impact over the environment and over the fossil energy resources.
The energy recovery system is a clean technology with many recyclable components.
