Nextgen Hybrid Electric Drive System represented by NextGen Tech Initiatives Pvt Ltd

The subject technology, NextGen Hybrid Electric Drive System, is a revolutionary technology poised to redefine sustainable mobility. With its higher fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, it not only offers environmental benefits but also addresses consumer concerns with its plug-in hybrid design, eliminating range anxiety. Its adaptability for existing vehicles, coupled with its low cost and ease of implementation, makes it an economically viable solution with immense potential, especially if supported by government policies and OEM initiatives. This system boasts dual powertrain flexibility, seamlessly integrating electric and internal combustion engines while incorporating regenerative braking for energy recovery. By increasing early adoption of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), it becomes a game-changing catalyst for sustainable mobility. Moreover, its industry-inclusive approach, agnostic to fuels used in internal combustion engines, ensures compatibility across a wide range of vehicles, making it a versatile and impactful solution for the future of transportation.

Hybrid electric Drive SystemFounded in 2013, NextGen Tech Initiatives Pvt Ltd envisions transformative changes in the mobility sector, particularly in the field of sustainable mobility. Established by two visionary engineers, the company is deeply committed to fostering and advancing ‘economically viable’ and ‘inclusive’ sustainable mobility solutions and is dedicated to re-shaping the future of transportation, by substantial reduction in GHG emissions per mile. Under the able guidance from an industry veteran with more than four decades of rich engineering experience in multinational engineering companies, several patents have been granted to Company in India, many IP’s in the advance stages in other countries like the USA, relevant trademarks in India and few functional prototypes undertesting with promising data, the dream of cleaner mobility seems achievable much sooner


Components of the Hybrid Electric Drive System:

1. Electric Drive: This consists of an electric motor, controller and battery system.
2. Epicyclic Gear System: An epicyclic gear system, also known as a planetary gear system, is a type of gear arrangement where gears rotate around a central gear.
3. Propeller Shaft: This is a shaft that transmits rotational power from the hybrid system to a rear axle (for rear wheel drive) or to a front axle (for front wheel drive).
4. Internal Combustion (IC) Engine Assembly with Gearbox: This includes a traditional combustion engine along with a gearbox for controlling speed and power being given to a propeller shaft.

Configuration and Functionality:

The hybrid electric drive system is positioned between the IC engine assembly, gearbox, and the rear axle differential of the vehicle, in case of rear wheel drive; and close proximity to the final drive coming out of the IC engine, gearbox in case of the front wheel drive vehicle.

It serves a dual purpose:

1. Individual Transmission to Wheels: It allows the transmission of power individually from each power train (electric motor and IC engine) to the wheels. This means the vehicle can be powered by either the electric motor or the internal combustion engine separately.
2. Combined Transmission: It combines the power from both the electric motor and the internal combustion engine, seamlessly transmitting it to the vehicle’s wheels. This is likely for situations where additional power is needed, such as during acceleration orclimbing hills.

Power Transmission Mechanism

The power generated by both ie the IC engine and the electric drive system is transmitted to the axle(s) through the said hybrid drive system. In simpler terms, this NextGen hybrid electric drive system is a sophisticated mechanism that efficiently manages the power generated by both the electric motor and the traditional internal combustion engine, for both the front wheel as well as rear wheel drive systems. It allows the vehicle to operate on electric power alone, traditional fuel-powered engine alone, or a combination of both, depending on the driving conditions and power requirements. This kind of system is designed for optimal energy efficiency and flexibility in various driving scenarios
