By combining AC ventor-controlled, electric motor power to the conventional mechanical powertrain, hybrid electric propulsion systems are able to reduce the demand on the engine, thereby lowering emissions and improving fuel economy. By using electric motors as generators during deceleration, vehicle braking energy is recovered and stored as battery enery to be re-used during peak load periods. Brake life is extended and maintenance costs and downtime are reduced.
