Title: Drive Train Design, Optimization and Control for an Open Wheel Hybrid Race Car
Author: Loveless, Edward A.; Ludikar, Timothy J.; Meghnath, Sandesh; Samson, Peter J.
Abstract: In this paper we present a new design for the drive train of an open wheel race car. The main idea is to have a biodiesel engine powering the rear wheels and an electric motor powering the front wheels. The design was simulated and tested to optimize race performance with models that are capable of easy modification for new components.
