The H 3000 features parallel hybrid architecture that supplies blended power from a conventional diesel engine with an Allison automatic transmission, a powerful electric motor with a regenerative braking kinetic energy recovery system, and stored energy from batteries.

EUFMCThe Allison H 3000 was unveiled at the NTEA Work Truck Show this past March in Indianapolis (F&F, March 8).

Remy Motor, Delphi Lithium Ion

As reported, the main components are a motor-generator by Remy International (the high power-to-weight ratio HVH 4210 model), lithium ion prismatic cell batteries by Delphi Automotive Systems, and power controllers, inverters and DC-to-DC converters.

The battery packs are modular, allowing an operator to choose up to four packs per vehicle to match storage capacity with specific vehicle or duty cycle. “An operator doesn’t have to buy too much capacity,” Allison hybrid programs VP Laurie Tuttle said in Indianapolis.

Allison, capitalizing on its long experience in parallel hybrid electric drive lines for buses, has launched the H 3000, based on its popular 3000-series transmission, for hybrid trucks. Allison hybrid component suppliers include Remy for motors and Delphi Automotive prismatic cell lithium ion batteries.

“This latest generation propulsion package achieves the highest energy efficiency and makes it perfectly suited for vocations with frequent stops and starts like utility, distribution, refuse, utility and shuttle bus applications,” PG&E said Friday. “Fuel savings are projected to be up to 25% depending on vocation and duty cycle.”

Potential Fuel Savings of Nearly 140,000 Gallons per Year

PG&E says it owns and operates 412 material handers. They “are used to inspect, repair and maintain the company’s vast network of transmission and distribution power lines…

“With an anticipated fuel savings of 25%, the company would save 139,279 gallons per year with this technology.”

EUFMC 2013, the 60th annual Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, is being held June 2-5 at Williamsburg Lodge & Conference Center in Williamsburg, Va.
