Paper Title:
Design of a Mechatronic Drive Train with Regenerative Braking
  Abstract

Building a research framework for a Parallel Hydraulic Hybrid (PHH) Prototype with Hydraulic Regenerative Braking and Launch Assist (HRB/HLA) System for small and medium sized vehicles has been attempted. The objective of this work is to capture lost Kinetic Energy during braking and store that captured energy in a pressurized accumulator to be used again to assist accleration. The experimental implementation and validation of the Regenerative Braking System concept for light vehicles has been done using a go-kart powered by a single cylinder Honda engine to demonstrate energy savings in a real life braking scenario. A light weight test system accommodating all the Hydraulic Breaking System components mounted at the rear of the go-kart has been successfully built and tested.
