Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, University Karlsruhe (TH) (Sprachenzentrum), course: English for Engineers C1, language: English, comment: Documentation of project work about hybrid cars. Goal was to analyze current hybrid car technology and development potential based on four different aspects and to come to a reasoned conclusion. Team members: Andreas Lang, Claus Christian Steeg, Maximilian Schuecking, Jan Stellet., abstract: It is very unusual in today's world that an evolutionary development step turns out to be revolutionary. Some experts claim, hybrid cars can revolutionize the car industry, but will they? In order to come to an objective conclusion, the following analysis deals primarily with the technical improvements of hybrid cars and compares key aspects to conventional car design. Structure is one of the first and most crucial decisions to be made. Evaluating different structures is thus an important aspect of an overall analysis. The relatively complex situation of having two engines combined leads to the question of optimized controlling strategies. Responsible for storing the electric energy are the rechargeable batteries. With these aspects in mind, a detailed conclusion on costs and benefits is possible. This should allow for a differentiate view on hybrid cars.Team members: Andreas Lang, Claus Christian Steeg, Maximilian Schuecking, Jan Stellet., abstract: It is very unusual in todaya#39;s world that an evolutionary development step turns out to be revolutionary.
