A study was conducted to quantitatively assess the practicality, from both a performance and cost viewpoint, of a transmission that will meet the requirements of a flywheel/heat engine hybrid propulsion system for a family car. The scope of the study included: consideration of various types of feasible transmissions; selection of candidate transmission, detailed performance and controls analysis of the candidate transmission; and lastly, a detailed cost analysis of the transmission. The heat engine considered in the study was a standard internal combustion engine typically used in present-day, medium sized, family cars. (Author)
