A model which will provide a tool in evaluating advanced low-emission automotive power systems, and a basis for decisions relating to further development of candidate power systems is presented. The technique is quantitative and readily adaptable to the stage of a candidate's development. It relies primarily on engineering measurements and provides consistent repeatable results. It allows the use of expert value judgments as a valid part of the evaluation process. The parameters which, when measured, will provide the information needed to describe and adequately evaluate the candidate are listed, and the measurement scales and the rationale for the parameter selection are provided.. The cost and economic factors critical to the evaluation of candidates are discussed. The analytical formulation of the model is addressed. Also included are value sets of parameters for eight evaluation categories: emissions, operating performance, acceptability, operating environment, safety, personnel and facilities, propulsion system technology and reliability and maintenance.
