Electric/Hybrid Vehicles: 1997 SAE Future Transportation Technology Conference : Alternative Powerplants, Energy Management, and Battery Technology
Noting that large automobile manufacturers have begun producing commercial vehicles that run completely or partly on electricity, suggests that what is needed now is not a technological breakthrough but steady improvement in the elements already applied. The nine papers discuss such aspects as a high-frequency electronic equalizer for batteries, the thermophotovoltaic generation of power for a series hybrid vehicle, and quasi-isothermal expansion engines for liquid nitrogen propulsion.
