ABSTRACT
The paper presents a new trend in the development of the hydraulic drive systems, which aims to develop and implement devices and systems for recovery of kinetic or potential energy, which remains available after achieving useful mechanical work, in different equipments with hydraulic driving, in order to increase energy efficiency. There are shown some aspects regarding the thermo-hydraulic hybrid motor vehicles and, in brief, there is presented a Romanian version of a thermo-hydraulic hybrid motor vehicle, conceived in mechatronics conception. In the final part, there are presented some experimental models, which demonstrate the possibility to recover the kinetic and potential energy, and also the posibility to quantify the recovered energy, by calculation of the energy recovery coefficient. There are presented some graphical results which clearly show the phases of the energy recovery concept: capture, storage and reuse of the recovered energy. The results confirm the technology and the technical solutions adopted for kinetic energy recovery.
