New Three-Part Hybrid Components Chapter at

Date: 04-Jan-2019

Online training specialists OurVirtualAcademy have released a new three-part Hybrid Components Chapter for subscribers: Hybrid Braking Systems.

Hybrid cars are designed to take advantage of regenerative braking at every opportunity, but also require a hydraulic friction braking system to provide sufficient power for emergency braking. Part 1 of Hybrid Braking Systems looks at how the brake pedal works to actuate both regenerative braking and friction braking; Part 2 goes into more detail about linear valves and the workings of the brake control unit; and Part 3 tackles the issues presented in the workshop by these unconventional braking systems, and explains what is happening in the hydraulic system during the brake bleeding process.
