Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) Technology | Hybrid System | Hybrid Cars

Hybrid Synergy Drive What Is a Hybrid System? A hybrid system combines different power sources to maximize each one’s strengths, while compensating for the others’ shortcomings. A gasoline-electric hybrid system, for example, combines an internal combustion engine’s high-speed power with the clean efficiency and low-speed torque of an electric motor that never needs to be…

Catalyst Technology | Single Nano-Catalyst | Precious Metal Dispersion Model

In automobile catalytic converters, the surface conditions of the precious metals—the catalyst materials—have a large effect on their ability to clean emissions. Conventionally, precious metal particles are adhered to a base material. However, heat from the exhaust gas causes the particles to collect together and agglomerate to form larger particles. This reduces the surface area…

Miller Cycle | Sequential Valve Timing (S-VT) | Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

The key to improving fuel efficiency lies in raising an engine’s thermal efficiency. This can be done by increasing the expansion ratio. The expansion ratio is the amount of work the engine does each time the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders detonates. However, in conventional engines the expansion ratio is the same as the compression…

Direct Injection Gasoline Engine | DISI Engine

In developing the DISI engine, we aimed to cool the interior of the cylinder as much as possible by promoting fuel vaporization and uniform mixing of atomized fuel and air. This produces a high charging efficiency of the air-fuel mixture and a high compression ratio, which results in significant improvements in both torque and fuel…

Idling Stop Technology | i-stop

Idle stop systems save fuel by shutting down a vehicle’s engine automatically when the car is stationary and restarting it when the driver resumes driving. Especially in urban areas, drivers often let their car’s engine idle at traffic lights or when stopped in traffic jams. Switching off the engine to stop it idling in these…
