Abstract [en]

Within the Volvo Group there exist long-ranging experiences regarding hybrid propulsions systems for heavy commercial vehicles of the brands Volvo Trucks, Renalt Trucks, Mack Trucks, Nissan Diesel and Volvo Bus. For commercial vehicles like these, hybrid technology is to be regarded seriously and a business case is often given. The search for energy efficient solutions goes on also for construction equipment, and hybrids are everyone's topic. Within Volvo Construction Equipment there is a tradition of researching and developing energy efficient solutions, an example of which was the presentation of a first prototype of a hybrid wheel loader in the beginning of 2008. In this paper the wheel loader will be used as an example for other types of construction machinery. Using a systematic design approach, several more principle design solutions can be found. Reduced fuel consumption by 50% while keeping the performance and productivity at the same level is only possible by considering the complete machine as one system using a holistic approach.
