Ferrari V12 HY-KERS Technology
At the recent Beijing, Ferrari unveiled the evolution of the HY-KERS project adapted to a mid-rear engine layout. The powertrain consists of a 12-cylinder engine and dual-clutch gearbox coupled to an electric motor. A second electric motor is dedicated to the auxiliary systems and is located in front of the V12. The two electric motors are connected to the batteries which can be positioned in the car in line with the available space and final configuration. The objective of this configuration is to create a sports car that, thanks to the integration with the electric motors, increases power while at the same time reducing emissions. The KERS features new, smaller and lighter electronic components which come close to achieving the declared target of 1 KW per kg of extra weight added by the hybrid system. Technological transfer from F1 was fundamental to the design, engineering and construction of an innovative electric motor used to optimise the car's longitudinal and lateral dynamic characteristics, namely torque management, traction control and brake distribution, to the benefit of sportiness and driving pleasure.
KERS stands for " ...
KERS stands for "Kinetic Energy Recovery System"it can be done multiple ways but the way they do it in this particular system is with an electric motor attached to the back of the tranny. when you start to apply the brakes the motor feeds off of the leftover energy charging the battery. then when you want to accelerate, instead of waiting for the higher torque to kick in purely from the engine you use the instant torque from your electric moter that was just charged from the battery. google it.

the brakes have nothing to do with this
Meh its old tech ...
Meh its old tech with a misleading name if you ask me
Braking generates ...
Braking generates enough energy to turn the disk brakes red hot so you can capture that wasted energy to power an electric motor. Not sure how its done but the energy is stored in each wheel for kers.

Leave it to Ferrari ...
Leave it to Ferrari......Get er Done guys...Inspiring.
i understand what u ...
i understand what u mean.. in this video its being run off the alternator.. and there mst be an alternator tpe thing in f1?
Good question... ...
Good question... Think of the dynamo that charges the KERS batteries/capacitors as a break that, instead of converting the cinetic energy in heat (by friction) converts it to electricity. So, when you "charge" the KERS, you're in fact breaking. Then when you "apply" KERS, the dynamo reverses and uses the stored electricity to give that extra push to the motor. The secret is to convert the movement (cinetic energy) in some other form of energy that could be stored and reused later.

ok internet wizards.. HOw can braking possibly charge KERS??
i understand the ...
i understand the use of KERS in this layout.. But in F1 its shite... And whats to say teams aren't fiddling with voltages to easily extract more ponies from KERS?? They should jus make a decent engine and be done wid it...
Kers used to be a ...
Kers used to be a problem in 2009 now no problem with Ferrari Dont compare williams with Ferrari 2012
