Abstract


Hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) combines the benefits of petrol engines and electric motors and can be configured to obtain different objectives, such as improved fuel economy, increased power and reduced emission leads to green environment. In recent days, availability of fuel source is depleting day by day and due to more consumption of fuel, the environmental pollution is increasing. In order to overcome that issue we have remodelled a two wheeler as a hybrid two wheeler which means the vehicle can use electric power additionally for its working. In hybrid two-wheeler, there are three modes such as fuel mode, electric mode and dual mode. Initially, vehicle runs in fuel mode and after saving energy from this using dynamo, electric mode starts and the motor is used to run the vehicle and the speed of the vehicle is controlled by using rheostat; and in dual mode, both engine and motor are used in case of high load carrying and quick travel.
