TRUCK & OFF-HIGHWAY ENGINEERING 4 June 2017 POWERTRAIN Using power dense flywheel hybrid technology to cut fuel consumption of OH equipment Flywheel hybrid system developer Flybrid is creating a family of flywheel modules designed to enhance productivity and cut operating costs of off-highway vehicles and construction equipment. Designed to supplement the main powertrain, the modules can be connected hy - draulically, mechanically or electrically. Flybrid, part of the Torotrak Group , has de- veloped its KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) for applications ranging from F1 race cars to buses. But now it is widening its tech- nology spectrum. Richard Dunne, Flybrid’s Business Development Manager, said: “Flywheels are an incredibly power-dense method of storing and releasing energy and a flywheel hybrid is a compact and cost-effective way to hybridize a machine.” The initial new family of flywheel modules is designated 600 Series and spans an energy stor - age range from 150kJ to 600kJ, with the first pro- duction example, the H-380, able to store up to 380kJ and integrate with a machine’s hydraulic system. It would be suitable for excavators weigh- ing 20 to 45 tonnes, for example, or wheeled loads in the 75 kW to 225 kW power range. Dunne explained that the H-380 system harvests both kinetic and potential energy that would otherwise be wasted during the ma- chine’s operating cycle and releases it at the required power during the next cycle: “Examples include raising and lowering the boom of an excavator or the mast on a reach stacker; slewing on an excavator or shuttling between forward and reverse with a loader. It delivers up to 210 kW of additional power to the machine to significantly improve productivity.” He said that Flybrid demonstrated the sys- tem in a vehicle program using its 210-kW fly - wheel hybrid in a typical sub-130 kW (engine power), 22 tonne excavator. Meaningful consumption reductions, rigorous validation Previous Flybrid customer applications have dem- onstrated a fuel-consumption reduction of 15% when used to recover energy in a mobile ma- chine—and typical fuel-consumption reduction in load-leveling applications is 30%, added Dunne. In the example of an excavator, boom lower - ing is typically controlled by throttling the re- turn of flow from the boom cylinder, wasting the available energy by turning it to heat. When a hydraulically-connected Flybrid sys- tem is added to the excavator, this flow is di- verted to a variable-displacement pump, which in turn charges the flywheel. Due to the vari- able control of the pump, the flywheel can be charged regardless of the available pressure level or the state-of-charge of the flywheel (unlike an accumulator), explained Dunne: “To release the energy when raising the boom, flu- id is returned from the flywheel-driven pump by controlling the pump swash exactly at the pressure demanded. Again, the pressure that can be supplied is independent of the energy remaining in the flywheel.” He says he fully understands that plant op- erators may be cautious—even skeptical—when presented with an all-new technology in a busi- ness world where reliability, robustness and quality are absolute “musts” to avoid delays caused by malfunctioning equipment. So over the last 18 months, Flybrid has focused its resources on productionizing the H-380 sys- tem, working with its off-highway partners to complete an extensive validation program. Dunne detailed part of the process: “Flybrid Flybrid’s latest 600-series flywheel energy recovery family of modules is described as “compact and cost- effective” (image: Flybrid).

As part of the rig-based validation testing, full-life durability testing has been completed. Furthermore, this validation program included operating the H-380 system in a customer’s machine in a quar - ry. With this in-machine testing, Flybrid was able to show that its rig-based full- and sub-system validation was an accu- rate representation of real-world condi- tions. As part of this validation program, we also completed extreme inclination testing at operating angles beyond the capabilities of a quarry machine.” Previously, Flybrid developed hybrid systems capable of reliably delivering more than 1000 kW of additional power in extreme environments both on- and off-road, stated Dunne: “So we know our H-380 product, that delivers 210 kW of additional power, sits well within our comfortable operating range. The proven reliability, coupled with the high power density of the system, makes it an attractive option for operators.” He explained that in addition to recov - ering waste energy, the flywheel hybrid system can be used to load-level the engine. By “pre-charging” the flywheel, the energy can be used to smooth the peak loading on the engine, which in turn enables engine downsizing or downspeeding to reduce fuel consump- tion without impairing functionality. The Flybrid system is integrated with the main machine control system, de- signed to provide the same smooth and predictable operability as on the origi- nal machine. The control system of the flywheel hybrid can be configured to select the optimum source of energy from multiple sources within the ma- chine’s hydraulic control system and so will harvest the maximum amount of energy during an operation cycle. Flybrid is working with leading off- highway equipment manufacturers to implement flywheel hybrid systems in a variety of machines and applications. Apart from the production-ready H-380 Flybrid, the UK Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) recently announced a proj- ect involving Turner Powertrain Systems Ltd. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc.) and Flybrid. During the project an additional Flybrid product will be developed to a production-ready sta- tus for installation in a range of Caterpillar’s off-highway machines. “The power dense Flybrid Flywheel Hybrid System is well-matched to the requirements of heavy-duty applica- tions,” added Dunne. “It is designed for over 20,000 hours’ life in extreme oper - ating conditions.” Stuart Birch MANUFACTURING | ELECTRONICS IoT connections transform manufacturing, vehicle validation Commercial vehicles are at the forefront of the Internet of Things (IoT) move- ment, leveraging the connectivity that many have deployed for years. Equipment manufacturers are using IoT connections to improve their manufac - turing operations, upgrade diagnostics to prognostics and improve mainte- nance operations. Fleet managers have been benefiting from telematic links for years, monitor - ing trucks and off-highway vehicles to improve efficiency. Before long, most new equipment buyers will be able to benefit from connectivity. “We’ve had IoT connections for more than three years,” said Nahel Gandhi, Global IT Director IoT at CNH Industrial . “Now we’re making a big move so every - thing coming out from CNH is equipped with telematics from 2020 on.” This transition will help owners and operators, but it will provide sizable ben- efits to the equipment suppliers who build in connectivity, giving them copi- ous amounts of information about ve- hicles’ activities in the field. Companies at the recent Internet of Manufacturing Business Conference detailed ways they’re ramping up their ability to collect and understand large volumes of data so they can improve operations. “The transition from collecting data to turning that data into insights that trans- form the company take a lot of work,” said Gyasi Dapaa, Data Science Director at Navistar . “Big data is like economic yeast, without it businesses can’t rise.” IoT’s advantages aren’t limited to con- nected vehicles. Internally, manufactur - ing equipment is rapidly being connect - ed in what’s often called the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Suppliers are using these connections to make major strides in efficiency, learning from plants around the globe. Collecting operating information brings major advances. “We’re doing a lot in shop floor op- erations improvement,” said Alexander Nazarov, Engineering Functional Richard Dunne says of Flybrid’s technology: “Flywheels are an incredibly power dense method of storing and releasing energy” (image: Flybrid). Off-highway vehicles and construction equipment are suitable for Flybrid’s new family of flywheel modules. TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS

Not terribly clear what's happening with these sites. Both the .co.uk and the .com seem to be owned by Flybrid, but only the .com is hosted by trk. For both sites, all queries go to Jon Hilton, not to the trk secretary as one would normally expect (at least I would). I remain of the opinion that Hilton and Cross will take up where they left off when trk goes under - just a few years older and a few quid richer and with all the useful bits of trk ip in their back pockets. Incidentally, there's a very nice tractor shown on that site - looks almost like the one JD's now so proud of. I hope he didn't get Carraro to build a demonstrator at great expense to trk, then buy it off them at very little expense to himself. No, of course not, he's not that clever... Bodgit - to think you sold ACSO and bought more of this rubbish. Shame on you!

angus17, thanks for that. The new web site for Flybrid looks far from complete with no entries for quite a lot of it. How nice it would be if they could talk about customers actually using flywheel KERS systems in their products which people could go out and buy. But, alas, nothing like that, only 'spin' (sorry about that one) when they say they are a "world leader in flywheel storage technology solutions". 2/10 so far.......
