Driving cycle is used to assess fuel consumption, pollutant emissions and performance of the vehicle. The aim of this paper is to extract the driving cycle for refuse collection truck and estimate its braking energy. For this purpose, after selecting the target truck and geographic area, the equipment needed to measure the required variables were prepared and mounted on the truck. Then, the actual data were collected from the performance of the target Truck while performing its mission. Since the amount of braking energy depends on the speed, truck mass and road grade, the speed of the vehicle is measured simultaneously with the truck mass and road grade. The collected data are then processed and subdivided into micro-trips. The micro-trips are clustered according to the number of state spaces using the K-Means algorithm. Next, the representative micro trips are selected from within the clusters and the final driving cycle is generated. The representative driving cycle shows that the truck speed is zero at 47% of the working time. Finally, the amount of braking power and accumulative braking energy in the driving cycle is calculated.

Global restrictions on the use of fossil fuels in the transportation sector and the commitment to rapid response to the climate change have created a strong incentive to develop fuel-efficient and low-emission vehicle systems. Hydraulic hybrid power train technology is one of the temporary solutions introduced to optimize internal combustion engine (ICE) operation and regenerate braking energy. The hydraulic hybrid power train system (HHPS) has a higher power density than the electric one. So, it is used in heavy vehicles, agricultural and construction machinery that need a high-power density to accelerate or recover the braking energy.  In some trucks, such as refuses collection trucks, fire trucks and delivery trucks, a high percentage of the ICE energy is consumed by the auxiliary systems. In this type of trucks, the hydraulic hybrid power train systems are not very efficient. This paper introduces a hydraulic hybrid auxiliary system (HHAS) concept to manage the energy consumed by the auxiliary system in refuse collection trucks. In the first part of the paper, the configurations and operating modes of series, parallel and hydro-mechanical HHPS are discussed and compared with the HHAS concept. In the following, the conventional refuse collection truck model and refuse truck equipped with HHAS model was developed in MATLAB/SINMULINK and simulated in Tehran refuse collection truck driving cycle. The simulation results show that by using the ​​HHAS concept, the fuel consumption is reduced by 15 percent.
