Improve model of the standard serial hybrid powertrain for city busses is presented. In classic topology recovered braking energy returns through the motor in the battery system. A combination of solutions with the compressed air as a dynamic reservoir for the recuperation of braking energy and the use of ICE waste heat energy as an energy booster is improved of design. The waste heat energy of ICE, that represents 65% of the consumed fossil fuels potential energy, is transferred to compressed air high-pressure vessel and by adiabatic process total energy is raised. Simulation results show that recuperated WHE can be transformed into mechanical energy up to 20% of fossil fuels potential energy. Improve design provides a rise of system efficiency to up 40%. Thus ultimately provides a total reduction of fuel consumption by over 37,5% compared to the standard topology of SHEV. The advantage of the presented system is that it reused WHE produced by ICE, so the overall efficiency of the SHEV power drive is increased and CO2 emissions are reduced.
