Toyota using Prius hybrid battery is the world’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle model launched by Japan’s Toyota Motor Corporation in 1997, and then sold to more than 40 countries and regions around the world in 2001, the largest markets are Japan and North America. The United States is the largest market for Toyota vehicles using Prius hybrid batteries. As of the beginning of 2009, Toyota sold more than 600,000 units. Toyota using Prius hybrid batteries is by far the most mature gas-electric hybrid in the world. A large number of advanced technologies have been applied to Toyota vehicles that use Prius hybrid batteries, such as the use of by-wire technology and all-electric air conditioners. The following introduces some advanced technologies of Toyota vehicles that use Prius hybrid batteries.
Here is the content list:
1. By-wire technology
2. Electronically controlled continuously variable transmission
3. Electronically Controlled Braking System (ECB)
4. Fully electric air conditioning system
By-wire technology originated in the aviation industry, which means that certain control mechanisms use electronic control and electric execution to replace mechanical or hydraulic control. It has the characteristics of fast response, lightweight and small footprint. In Toyota vehicles that use Prius hybrid batteries, the throttle, brake, shift lever, traction control, and vehicle stability control (VSC+) all use wire control technology to improve maneuverability.
Toyota vehicles using Prius hybrid batteries do not have a continuously variable transmission (CVT), but the transmission theory of the Prius is the same as that of the continuously variable transmission. The power distribution device of Toyota using the Prius hybrid battery is shown in Figure 5. The torque distribution group of the engine and the electric motor drives the wheel or the generator, and the speed of the power source (driving motor, engine, and generator) is selectively controlled. Simulate the continuous change of the transmission gear ratio and work like an ordinary continuously variable transmission.
Toyota using Prius hybrid battery adopts a unique electronically controlled braking system as shown in Figure. Stepping on the brake pedal will trigger the parking control circuit, and the electronic control system (ECB) responds quickly and can cooperate with other active safety systems (such as VSC+). ECB is also used to improve the efficiency of the regenerative braking system, recovering the kinetic energy of Toyota vehicles that use Prius hybrid batteries during braking. The ECB has a backup power source in case the vehicle power system fails.
The compressor of the traditional air-conditioning system is driven by the engine through the belt, while the air-conditioning compressor of Toyota using Prius hybrid battery is driven by the air-conditioning inverter. The air-conditioning system of Toyota using Prius hybrid battery does not rely on the operation of the engine.
It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce Prius hybrid battery that meets the standards, so as to ensure the healthy development of the Prius hybrid battery market. GK International Enterprises Co., Ltd. conducts many tests on Prius hybrid battery before they leave the factory, and quality qualification rate is guaranteed.
