Abstract

In our study of applications of technologies designed to enhance fuel efficiency, we decided to perform an analysis of various systems. These systems included a wind turbine, regenerative braking, and Stirling engines. We performed a cost-benefit analysis for each of these systems. This analysis showed that the wind turbine was not feasible. It also showed that the regenerative braking system and Stirling engines are viable methods for increasing fuel efficiency.
