Bosch Rexroth’s hydrostatic regenerative braking system (HRB) stores brake energy in a hydraulic pressure reservoir and relieves the load on the main drive when the vehicle is accelerating—potentially reducing fuel consumption by up to 25% in vehicles used for short distances, including urban buses, garbage trucks, forklift trucks, or delivery vehicles. Fuel consumption also can be reduced in other commercial vehicles and trucks. The HRB system includes a hydrostatic hybrid drive that uses the performance of hydraulics compared with available batteries to reduce fuel consumption, even in heavy commercial vehicles. The compact HRB can be integrated and retrofitted in the chassis as an add-on system without major modifications.
