Idle Reduction Projects for the Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity :  Idle Reduction Projects for the Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity Ken Proc, Project Leader, Fleet Test and Evaluation Center for Transportation Technologies & Systems National Renewable Energy Laboratory November 17, 2004 Outline:  Outline Overview of Activities to Date Evaluation and Validation Projects Solicitation for Truck OEM Factory Installation Future Activities On-Board Idle Reduction Technologies for Heavy-Duty Trucks:  On-Board Idle Reduction Technologies for Heavy-Duty Trucks GOAL: To maximize the introduction and use of idle reduction technologies in heavy-duty trucks Objectives Develop objective in-use information on the performance of on-board idle reduction technologies Identify and implement strategies to overcome critical cost barriers Conduct education and outreach Slide4:  Worked with trucking industry stakeholders to identify issues hindering introduction of idle reduction technologies Conducted Government/Industry conference & workshops Developed technology demonstration plan Awarded 3 data collection/technology validation projects Issued solicitation for truck OEM on-line installation Supporting development of the National Idling Reduction Plan AVTA’s Idle Reduction Technologies Activities to Date Idle Reduction Technologies Data Collection Validation Projects:  Specifications and costs System descriptions Capital and installation costs Payback period Vehicle operation Fuel consumption (truck idle and idle reduction system) Engine oil consumption and changes Maintenance (truck and idle reduction system) Other evaluation information Engine and component wear Resale value User impressions Idle Reduction Technologies Data Collection Validation Projects GOAL: To gather objective in-use information on the performance of available technologies Schneider National Evaluation Project:  Schneider National Evaluation Project Demonstration team: Schneider, Freightliner, Webasto Trucks idle approximately 480 hrs/year Cooling (19 trucks) New product utilizes phase change medium Charged during normal operation using existing AC Cab heater (100 trucks) Diesel-fueled air heater Offered as OEM option 4Q FY03- 2Q FY05 Extension awarded to continue testing Schneider National Evaluation Project:  Schneider National Evaluation Project Cab cooling performance and results (Jun – Sep 03) Provided 10 hrs of cooling up to 85°F ambient; 7 hrs at 90°F Cab cooler trucks idling time 15% vs. 19% for control trucks No measured fuel economy benefit (7.0 MPG for both test and control trucks) Issues Lack of insulation Poor airflow Difficult install Schneider National Evaluation Project:  Schneider National Evaluation Project Cab heating performance and results (Nov 03 – Apr 04) Heated cab at 70°F in ambient temperatures down to 0°F Cab heater trucks idling time 9% vs. 22% for control trucks 2% improvement in fuel economy (6.7 MPG for heated vs. 6.5 MPG for control) Issues Lack of temp. adjustment 5% failures Caterpillar MorElectric Technology Evaluation:  Caterpillar MorElectric Technology Evaluation Team: Caterpillar, International Truck, and Cox Transfer 5 new MorElectric trucks; 5 new control Trucks idle about 1830 hrs/year Electrically-driven accessories On-road operation more efficient Three main components HVAC unit Generator Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Project runs 4Q FY03- 4Q FY05 Project extension awarded to continue testing through 4Q FY07 Caterpillar MorElectric Technology Evaluation:  Caterpillar MorElectric Technology Evaluation Accomplishments Caterpillar and International completed engineering design work required for installation Selected 2-piece HVAC design to minimize vehicle modifications and address weight distribution issues Designed interface wiring Status First test truck built and undergoing initial validation testing Remaining four trucks to enter service by end of November 2004 Espar Heater and Electric AC Evaluation:  Espar Heater and Electric AC Evaluation Team: Espar, International Truck, and Wal-Mart 20 trucks with combined heating and cooling systems At least 2 control trucks Bunk heater Diesel fueled air heater Engine pre-heater Diesel fueled coolant heater Roof-mounted electric air conditioner Operates on starting or auxiliary batteries Project awarded September 2004 Installation of equipment is underway Solicitation for Truck OEM Factory Installation:  Solicitation for Truck OEM Factory Installation Develop full-function IR technology as factory option Integrate into on-board design and assembly by MY07 Demonstrate cost savings versus aftermarket installation Document fully Teams should include truck OEM (lead), IR device manufacturer, fleet $300-500K total funding, 2-3 awards, 50/50 cost-share Project duration 2-3 years Award late 2Q, FY05 AVTA’s Future Activities for Idle Reduction Technologies:  AVTA’s Future Activities for Idle Reduction Technologies Education and outreach (FY04-FY05) Coordinate with Idle Elimination Manufacturers Association in addressing policy and institutional barriers (FY04-FY05) Extend data collection/demonstration projects (FY06, if warranted and funding available) Additional solicitation for on-line installation of idle reduction technologies at truck OEMs targeting year 2008 emission and fuel consumption requirements (FY06, if warranted and funding available) CoolCab For More Information:  For More Information Status Report on Idle Reduction Technology Demonstrations www.avt.nrel.gov/idle.html
