There is a new name to take note of in the world of regenerative braking after Mazda developed the i-ELOOP , which will appear in its vehicles from 2012. The new passenger vehicle braking system makes use of an ultracapacitor and can improve fuel economy in stop-and-go driving conditions by approximately 10 per cent. Ultracapacitors can be charged and discharged rapidly while featuring a very long cycle life compared to batteries. The i-ELOOP system converts the vehicle’s kinetic energy into electricity as it decelerates and uses the electricity to power the climate control and other electrical components. Among its features are a new 12-25V variable voltage alternator; as well as a low resistance electric double layer capacitor and a DC/DC convertor. It recovers kinetic energy from the moment the driver takes their foot off the accelerator pedal and the vehicle starts to ...
