ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to verify if it is possible to recover the energy from automobile suspensions, using a system who replace the shock absorber. The system consists of an electric generator, a mechanical system for transforming the translation of body car in rotational movement and an electronic control system. The tests were made on three road types, according to ISO 8608/1995 with four different driving speeds. The results showed that a significant quantity of energy was recovered during the test on inferior type of road, even at reduced speed. For the superior type of the road, the energy can be recovered only at high speed. The parameters that influences the system capacity of recovering energy are gross weight of the vehicle, road type and the vehicle speed.
Key Words: Road type, Suspension, Shock absorber, Energy recovery system, Electric generator, Characteristics
