Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR AN ACTIVE CONVERTOR DOLLY
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL POUR UN CHARIOT À TRANSFORMATEUR ACTIF
Abstract:
(EN) The disclosure is directed at an apparatus for an active converter dolly for use in a tractor-trailer configuration. In one aspect, the apparatus includes a system to connect a first trailer towed behind a towing vehicle to a second trailer. The apparatus further includes a kinetic energy recovery device for translating the mechanical motions or actions of the dolly into electricity or electrical energy so that this energy can be used to charge a battery or to power other functionality for either the dolly or the tractor-trailer. The active dolly may also operate to assist in shunting the tractor-trailer. The active dolly is operable in a number of modes to increase vehicle performance and efficiency.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil pour un chariot à transformateur actif destiné à être utilisé dans une configuration de véhicule articulé. Selon un aspect, l'appareil comprend un système permettant de relier une première remorque remorquée derrière un véhicule tracteur à une seconde remorque. L'appareil comprend en outre un dispositif de récupération d'énergie cinétique permettant de transformer les mouvements ou actions mécaniques du chariot en électricité ou en énergie électrique de telle sorte que cette énergie puisse être utilisée pour charger une batterie ou pour alimenter une autre fonctionnalité pour le chariot ou le véhicule articulé. Le chariot actif peut également permettre d'aider à manœuvrer le véhicule articulé. Le chariot actif peut fonctionner dans un certain nombre de modes pour augmenter la performance et l'efficacité du véhicule.
