- This is the eighth quarterly technical progress report for a program in which the objective is to evolve and define an accessory drive system that will minimize system power consumption of driven accessories on an internal combustion engine in a passenger automobile. The initial program phases established concept feasibility, determined potential fuel savings, and selected a drive system design for concept mechanization. The current Phase IV carries the program through prototype fabrication and bench, engine, and vehicle tests. The final program objective is a detail drive system design and a demonstrated overall vehicle fuel savings potential. The major technical accomplishments during this reporting period were: the test vehicle was successfully driven to and from Ann Arbor, Michigan from Phoenix with the drive system installed; accessory drive hardware was calibrated, disassembled and reviewed for wear after round trip from Phoenix to Ann Arbor, Michigan; MADS governor performance was analyzed and parameters were varied to demonstrate flexibility available in modifying accessory drive input/output characteristics; and a task list that matched smaller, lower cost accessory components, with the accessory drive equipped vehicle, was prepared. Major emphasis during the remainder of the program will be in this area. (LCL)
