Final Report - FUEREX (Multi-fuel Range Extender with high efficiency and ultra low emissions)

Project ID: 265885
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

This is the final report for the FUEREX project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). The project took on the challenge of simultaneously meeting the tough efficiency, emission, noise vibration and harshness (NVH), integration and cost requirements for a range extender. The report reveals that the FUEREX project has demonstrated that the three concepts can contribute substantial to the accelerated introduction of the electric vehicles. Before the battery electric vehicle (BEV) will become a mass product - mainly due to the battery performances and related costs - range extended electric vehicles (REEV) will be an important bridge technology. The report concludes by noting that the method to create compact driving cycles for robust design has been one of the base components when the Swedish Hybrid Vehicle centre has started an industry-university collaboration project on tools to analyse driving and generate driving cycles for different usage like concept analysis (like in FUEREX), control design, diagnostic system development or control with preview.
