The power flow is also changed due to the new power source and the recovery energy; hence, different parameters of the system units can result in different fuel consumption rate. It is important for improving the system efficiency and reducing the fuel rate of the hydraulic hybrid excavator by investigating the parameter matching method, which is also a good way to cut down the rated engine power and cost.
