A hybrid vehicle is the one which uses two or more distinct power sources to move the vehicle. The term most commonly refers to hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which combine an internal combustion engine and one or more electric motors. The hybrid vehicles should replace regular gas-fuelled cars because they are increasingly popular and are the cars of the future; they consume far less gasoline with a better performance as they are eco-friendly. The objectives of a hybrid drive train are to improve the driving functions of a vehicle, i.e., fuel economy, eco-friendly, emissions, comfort and safety. Hybridization allows performing, downsizing the engine and optimizing the power flows over the different thermal, mechanical and electrical paths between the different power sources. The main objectives of this project are as listed below: •To attain a general purpose locomotive which can carry a load of 6.5 KN •To attain a FOS 2.5-3 •To reduce the pollution as much as possible •To evaluate engine performance at various load, speeds, and conditions •Creative design to attain a moderate quality
