Magna, GM Collaborate on Electric Equinox Test Fleet

Magna International engineers are testing how well the popular Chevrolet Equinox crossover might perform if it were powered completely by an electric motor.A fleet of nine demonstration vehicles has been retrofitted with electronic components from Magna E-Car Systems, a division of Magna International of Aurora, the company said Thursday.Over the next two years, specially-trained personnel are to drive the GTA's streets and highways, said Magna E-Car chief engineer and program manager Jim Parrott, who drove a new red electric Equinox 70 kilometres for the announcement, from Magna's Aurora headquarters to its plant in Vaughan."I'll be driving it back again and expect to have a 10 per cent charge left," he said of the vehicle's current 150-kilometre single charge range. "(That's) commuting distance," he added.Magna is to test three of the vehicles out of Aurora, GM the other six out of Oshawa, Parrott said.Most electric cars tend to be small. The Nissan Leaf has been out for about a year. An electric Ford Focus launches in the New York and California markets next month.GM has the Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera electric vehicles, with a range of up to 580 kilometres on one charge.With the testing of these Equinox prototypes, the electric motor leaps into a whole new category - a sports utility vehicle or what GM often calls a "crossover" SUV on a passenger car body.GM wants to see if such a heavy vehicle can be added to its electric offerings."The demonstration project is the latest example of GM's commitment to broaden our vehicle electrification technology expertise," GM engineering director Matthew Crossley said in a release.Magna, said Parrott, "wants to understand how our components work" in the larger vehicle.Among other Magna E-Car Systems components, the demonstration models are fitted with an electric motor generating up to 105 kilowatts and a 33 kilowatt/hour battery pack fitted into the undercarriage.

Businesses Are Turning to Shredding Companies to Help Them Destroy Incriminating Documents
Paper shredding can be time consuming. If you've been ordered by a sweating line manager to destroy a load of paperwork in a hurry, things can get a bit stressful - particularly if you're stuffing it into a Fellowes PowerShred P-20 (£17.49, plus VAT) which only handles five sheets at once and pushes them out at the rate of 2.5 metres per minute.This week, staff at Kids Company claimed that they were told to shred client files just before the beleaguered charity's collapse; it's unlikely that they'll have been using a feature-packed Rexel RLWSFM9 (£6,600, plus VAT, nine sheets at once, 4 metres per minute) but even if they had, it would still have felt too slow. Anyone with shredding experience will confirm that: a) it's laborious; and b) they wished someone else would do it. "You've generally got to have a member of staff standing over the machine," says Daniel Hawtin, managing director of The Shredding Alliance. "But we can shred in 15 minutes what would take someone five hours on an office shredder." That's a proud boast, and it's one that shred-weary businesses are becoming increasingly seduced by. "There are six companies in The Shredding Alliance," says Hawtin, "and we have a network of independent companies that work with us - but it's impossible to put a number on what the industry is worth. The problem is that it's not regulated in the UK. You could literally go off this afternoon and start your own shredding business." To provide peace of mind to customers, reputable organisations such as PHS, Shred-it and The Shredding Alliance boast of stringent security measures and their close adherence to the BS EN 15713 standard. "It's the dummies' guide to confidential shredding," says Hawtin, "covering everything from how the person collecting the paper is vetted to how it's transported, shredded and what happens to it after that." Of course, our need to annihilate all trace of confidential (or incriminating) pieces of paper goes back millennia, but it took a German toolmaker to turn it into a thriving business.Adolf Ehinger was quietly printing and distributing anti-Nazi material in the mid-1930s. But when a neighbour spotted some in his dustbin and threatened to report him, he took inspiration from the pasta machine in his kitchen and built a hand-cranked paper shredder, later adding an electric motor. When he first took it to trade shows, people laughed. But during wartime it caught on, and by the 1950s the company EBA Maschinenfabrik had become huge - particularly in America."Yes, this industry is massive in the USA," says Hawtin. "The regulations are a lot more stringent - six or seven decent-sized businesses out of 10 will use a shredding service. Over here it's more like two or three." Mounting corporate anxiety might well drive that number upwards; Shred-it's list of document security pitfalls is enough to provoke hyperventilation - failure to secure waste bins, unsecured printers, taking work home, leaving stuff on whiteboards..."You've got to be careful," says Hawtin. "In this office, no paper leaves without being shredded. Junk mail, everything. If you're not shredding and you're hoping for the best, you've got a whole host of problems on your hands." Weirdly, as business security concerns increase, the younger generation appears to be less likely to give a hoot; in one survey 34 per cent of "millennials" described data theft as a victimless crime. But as we move to being paper-free, shredding services are moving with the times. "We do media destruction too," says Hawtin.However, before you go into a shredding frenzy, be careful; any attempt to reassemble the "micro-cut confetti" produced by modern shredders will be very long, very tearful - and ultimately futile.
Electric Bikes for Sale at Best Buy - Cbs News
Are Americans ready for electric bicycles? Some celebrated entrepreneurs, including Lee Iaccoca and Malcolm Bricklin, have lost their shirts in the category, but Best Buy is convinced that the electrification of transportation now extends to two-wheelers. It has started an experiment to sell several forms of assisted pedaling (as well as Segways and the Brammo electric motorcycle) at 20 stores in California and Oregon. One of its ebikes in a lineup that includes the Baja Motorsports moped and Currie Ezip is the $2,699 Ultra Motor A2B, which I recently borrowed for some memorable test drives.Best Buy is serious about this, and recently invested $10 million in Brammo. Neither Ultra Motor nor Best Buy will comment on how many A2Bs the retailer has sold three months into the program, but Best Buy's Kelly Groehler says, "One of the things that's important for the future growth of [our company] is staying ahead of where technology is in people's lives." The Geek Squad has been trained in ebike maintenance. Paul Vlahos, vice president of sales at Ultra Motor, isn't sure how big the ebike market is, citing competing estimates of from 20,000 to 200,000 sold annually. The line between ebikes and electric scooters is somewhat blurry, especially with the not very bike-like A2B. "Unlike more mature categories, there is not very good sales data on ebikes," said Vlahos. "Our distribution points continue to increase daily as more dealers and retailers see new trends, and as the category gains awareness and acceptance among U.S. consumers." Ultra Motor has 250 dealers in the U.S.--spread among traditional bike stores, green specialty retailers and motorsports locations."We have some strong independent dealers out there," said Vlahos. "We're unsure how the Best Buy relationship will ultimately work out, but we're excited about it. Will they expand into other stores? We hope so, but we're unable to speak to their plans for the category." Trending News Google Cloud Outage Missing Connecticut Mom Virginia Beach Shooting Protester Interrupts Harris The private Ultra launched the A2B in warm-weather states California, Arizona and Florida in September of last year. It's now available in bike-friendly locations such as Seattle, Portland (OR). San Francisco and New York. The lithium-ion batteries are guaranteed for a year, and the motor for two years. The high price might be a deterrent for some customers, but the beauty of the A2B and its competitors is that no motorcycle license is needed--in most states, this scooter-like device is regulated as if it were a bicycle.A very sleek design with the batteries enclosed in the frame and the electric motor in the rear hub, the A2B resembles a small scooter. It's somewhat heavy at 72 pounds, which makes unassisted pedaling uphill somewhat of a chore. But twist the throttle and it takes off with alacrity, offering 20 miles of cruising range. The With wide tires, the bike is extremely stable and easy to ride. Recharging is simple, and takes three and a half hours. A small box plugs into the wall and into a three-pin port on the bike.Vlahos says Ultra Motors sells "thousands" of A2Bs annually, but he declined to be more exact. "We're evaluating expansion into the scooter category," he said. That makes sense, because the A2B is most of the way there already. And we hear Best Buy is selling what we might call "escooters."
Five Formula 1 Cars for the Road
The fastest men on four wheels are preparing to start the 2013 Formula One championship at Albert Park in Melbourne this weekend. The mega-million dollar circus not only attracts the top tier of racing drivers, it's also a testbed for the fastest cars to wear numberplates.So even if you're not one of the elite group of 22 F1 drivers, you can still experience some of F1's technological thrills on the road. Although you'll have to be among a pretty elite group of people who can afford our Top Five F1 cars for the Road.Revealed just last week at the Geneva motor show, the Italian car maker's oddly self-titled hypercar is the closest machine to an F1 car that's ever been produced.Its carbon fibre construction is based on the same principles as an F1 machine, its body panels feature active aerodynamics that were developed in the team's high-tech wind tunnel to produce maximum downforce and its 588kW V12 engine is assisted by a 120kW electric motor and battery pack that borrows technology from the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) that Ferrari has developed since it was introduced to F1 racing in 2009.The net result is that the LaFerrari can rocket from 0-100km/h in less than three seconds and reach a top speed of more than 300km/h - both of which are line-ball with an F1 car in terms of performance.Ferrari even claims that both its current grand prix drivers, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, have been heavily involved in the development of the car As with its superseded F1 cars, Ferrari is only planning to sell the LaFerrari to a select group of its wealthy car collectors - including up to seven Australians - with a pricetag of about $2 million each.As far as Formula One rivalries are concerned, McLaren and Ferrari is the F1 equivalent to our tribal Ford-versus-Holden stoush. And the automotive arm of the British-based grand prix outfit was never going to back away from a roadgoing battle with the Prancing Horse.It trumped its Italian rival when it revealed its P1 hypercar at the Paris motor show last year, and the final production version was unveiled the day before the LaFerrari in Geneva last week Apart from their polar opposite appearances - the McLaren's space-age curvy style is in stark contrast to the Ferrari's sharp-edged angles - both claim to the offer similar levels of eye-popping performance by borrowing the latest F1 technology.The McLaren has a twin-turbo V8 engine and electric motor to produce a total of 674kW and uses the secondary powerplant to assist in acceleration much like an F1 car with a push-button on the steering wheel. Its massive rear wing also tilts backwards at high speeds while in a straight line to reduce drag and increase top speed, much like the Drag Reduction Systems (DRS) currently used by F1 cars on the main straights.Unlike the Ferrari, the P1's battery pack can recharged via a household power and the car can run on the electric motor only at city speeds for up to 10km.As with Ferrari, McLaren says that both former champions Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, who has switched to Mercedes this season, were involved in the car's development. It also plans to build a limited run of its P1 in left-hand drive only with each costing over $2 million, and is currently vetting more than 800 potential owners.With 182 Grand Prix victory trophies in its cabinet, McLaren has long been a technological pioneer in Formula One.In 1981, it was the first team to build an F1 car with the now ubiquitous lightweight, high-strength carbon fibre monocoque. A decade later it became the first company to transfer that technology to the road with its first road car, the aptly-named F1.The radical three-seat supercar - which featured a central driving position with a staggered passenger seat on each side - was the epitome of lightweight automotive engineering that included a specially-crafted set of titanium tools and tailor-made luggage to fit in its side-mounted compartments.Powered by a 6.0-litre BMW -built V12 that featured pure gold leaf insulation in the engine bay, it also held the mantle of being the fastest car in the world for more than a decade with its 390km/h top speed only beaten when the Bugatti Veyron arrived in 2005.McLaren produced only 106 of its F1 road cars between 1992 and 1998, 72 of which were able to be road registered and still command more than $1million at auctions today. Only one McLaren F1 is believed to exist in Australia.Okay, you don't need to spend a squillion bucks to taste F1 technology.BMW's last-generation M5 featured a V10 engine that it claimed directly borrowed lessons learnt through its involvement as an engine supplier to the Sauber and Williams F1 teams.Although it arrived the year after Formula One mandated that all grand prix cars would be powered by V8 engines, the M5's V10 featured a number of F1-style technologies that helped it produce 373kW and become the world's fastest four-door sedan at the time. The engine had eight individual throttle bodies, a lightweight engine block and a two-stage engine mapping computer that allowed it be driven around town without its full potential, or full-blast on a race track.Even though it was clunky, it also had seven-speed robotised manual gearbox that featured a launch control function and allowed to sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.4sec.If you're looking for an F1-inspired bargain, Honda's NS-X is a great place to start With prices for original, mint-condition models now commanding less than $40,000, Japan's original Ferrari fighter still offers F1 thrills for the same price as a modern hot hatch.It was the first production car to be built around a lightweight all-aluminium monocoque - helping it achieve a benchmark kerb weight of 1350kg at the time of its launch in 1990 - and its mid-mounted 3.0-litre V6 featured titanium conrods, forged pistons and Honda's VTEC variable valve timing system, all of which were a result of technologies developed through its F1 engines that helped power McLaren to its championship-winning ways in the mid-to-late 1980s.Its suspension also featured F1-style double wishbones with lightweight forged control arms.A number of F1 drivers also played a part in its development, including Japan's Satoru Nakajima and legendary Brazilian Ayrton Senna.
Advanced Materials for Electric Motor and Generator Windings
Carbon nanotube fibers and yarns have gained the attention of the electric motor and power generation industries due to the incredible combination of properties offered by CNT materials. Carbon nanotube fibers and yarns offer a highly flexible, strong, and lightweight option for motor winding constructions. Carbon nanotubes also offer higher conductivity than copper at the molecular level, although it has not yet been demonstrated that CNT yarns can achieve this level of conductivity on the scale of macroscopic fibers.Why do people say the ford 400m 6.6 v8 was a bad motor?So you are saying its not to late for a recall guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What is the downside of synthetic motor oil...?Synthetic oils are typically more expensive than 'conventional' motor oils, but then you can go longer between oil changes, so I am not sure that's a really bad thingIs it okay to use 10-30 Diesel motor oil in my Gasoline Car?No. Diesel motor oil is meant for diesel engines.

Volt to Get 100 Km Per Litre, Gm Says
DETROIT-General Motors Corp. said its Chevrolet Volt rechargeable electric car should get 230 miles per gallon (U.S.) of gasoline (100 kilometres per litre) in city driving, more than four times the mileage of the current champion, the Toyota Prius.GM came up with the figure in early tests using draft guidelines from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for calculating the mileage of extended range electric vehicles, said Tony Posawatz, GM's vehicle line director for the Volt.If the figure is confirmed by the EPA, which does the tests for the mileage posted on new car door stickers, the Volt would be the first car to exceed triple-digit gas mileage, Posawatz said.The Volt is powered by an electric motor and a battery pack with a 40-mile range. After that, a small internal combustion engine kicks in to generate electricity for a total range of 300 miles. The battery pack can be recharged from a standard home outlet.Most automakers are working similar plug-in designs, but GM could be the leader with the Volt, which is due in showrooms late in 2010.Toyota's Prius, the most efficient car now sold in the U.S., gets 48 miles per gallon. It is a gas-electric hybrid that runs on a small internal combustion engine assisted by a battery-powered electric motor to save gasoline.The first-generation Volt is expected to cost near $40,000, making it cost-prohibitive to many people even if gasoline returns to $4 per gallon. The price is expected to drop with future generations of the Volt, but GM has said government tax credits and the savings on fuel could make it cost-effective, especially at 230 miles per gallon."We get a little cautious about trying to forecast what fuel prices will do," Posawatz said. "We achieved this number and if fuel prices go up, it certainly does get more attractive even in the near-term generation," he said.GM was to present details of the mileage figure on Tuesday morning at an event at its technical center in the Detroit suburb of Warren.Figures for the Volt's highway and combined city/highway mileage have not yet been calculated, Posawatz said. The combined mileage will be in the triple digits as well, he said, but both combined and highway will be worse than city because the engine runs more on longer highway trips.The EPA guidelines, developed with input from automakers, figure that cars like the Volt will travel more on straight electricity in the city than on the highway. If a person drives the Volt less than 40 miles, in theory they could go without using gasoline.The mileage figure could vary as the guidelines are refined and the Volt gets further along in the manufacturing process, Posawatz said.GM is about halfway through building about 80 Volts that will look and behave like the production model, and testing is running on schedule, Posawatz said.Two critical areas, battery life and the electronic switching between battery and engine power, are still being refined, but the car is on schedule to reach showrooms late in 2010, he said.GM is simulating tests to make sure the new lithium-ion batteries last 10 years, Posawatz said."We're further along, but we're still quite a ways from home,'' he said. "We're developing quite a knowledge base on all this stuff. Our confidence is growing.'' The other area of new technology, switching between battery and engine power, is proceeding well, he said, with engineers just fine-tuning the operations."We're very pleased with the transition from when it's driving EV (electric vehicle) to when the engine and generator kick in,'' he said, GM also is finishing work on the power cord, which will be durable enough that it can survive being run over by the car. The Volt, he said, will have software on board so it can be programmed to begin and end charging during off-peak electrical use hours.Chrysler LLC, Ford Motor Co. and Daimler AG are all developing plug-ins and electric cars, and Toyota Motor Corp. is working on a plug-in version of its gas-electric hybrid system. Nissan Motor Co. announced last month that it would begin selling an electric vehicle in Japan and the U.S. next year.
How an Atkinson Cycle Engine Works
The Atkinson Cycle and Hybrid Cars So, you've got an engine that's really efficient, but it lacks in power, especially of the torque variety, the kind of power that the fire-breathing drag car has in spades. But, if you're a hybrid powertrain engineer, you also have an electric motor that has all torque all the time, from 0 rpm. The problem with the electric motor is that it doesn't sustain a high speed very well, not as well as a gasoline engine does, with its higher horsepower. What to do, hybrid powertrain engineer?Well, if you're Gilbert Portalatin, who happens to be a hybrid powertrain engineer with Ford, or any other engineer at almost any other car company building full hybrids, you bring these two systems together like chocolate and peanut butter. At low speeds, the electric motors kick in with their torque and move the car forward. Unless you're one of those super careful hypermilers who press the accelerator as gently as if a kitten were hiding underneath it, the gasoline engine will come online pretty quickly, though the electric motor is doing quite a bit of work. At about 40 mph or so, the Atkinson cycle engine will take over almost completely, with a bit of assist from the electric motor.As long as you've got this kind of combo, you can engineer the Atkinson cycle engine to mesh precisely with the electric motor for optimal efficiency. If you insist on taking on the fire-breather in the next lane, you won't be left completely in the dust. "Smash the pedal, and you'll get what you're asking for -- all of both powerplants," said Lee at Toyota.This load leveling is why a full hybrid like the Toyota Prius or Ford Escape get better mileage around town than they do on the highway -- exactly the opposite of, like, every other vehicle on the road. The non-fire-breathers among us drive pretty slowly around town. We start and stop a lot, and we don't get up to 75 mph, so the electric motor takes a lot of the burden. On the highway, though, the gasoline engine is pretty much working alone.Hardly anyone in 1887 could have predicted the happy peanut butter-and-chocolate marriage between Atkinson's engine and electric motors -- cars didn't even have permanent roofs then.
What Is the Best Placement of an Electric Motor for Power Assist Vs .power Replacement.?
I would like to add a comment to Breath On The Wind, when saying about the following in relation to the ICE engine;; "at a steady rpm can reach a high efficiency of around 30% will fall around 15% through a drive train.". WOW, that is a peak efficiency of 30 % BEFORE drive train loses. I wonder what the average efficiency would be for real world driving conditions. 15 % drive train loses does not sound like much, but when you look at it this way; 100 percent, divided by the 30% means that at least 3.3 times energy is required due to engine inefficiencies, and then add 15 % to that. 15% drive train loss effectively means 50% as much as energy if one had 100% efficiency. Of course no car has 100%, and that is merely to illustrate how the extremity of the ICE inefficiency as sort of amplified. From software simulation data, I calculated from average pressures over each cycle, that 30% of the pressure in the cylinder compressing, is fighting against the cylinder in its combustion. That is for my 4 cylinder car, and is before considering that a large portion of the energy is focused at angles of low leverage, meaning a low percentage of transfer. Some further things i would like to add about ICE - We have catalytic converters to burn the unburnt fuel and dump that heat (ie energy) out the tail pipe. - we have a radiator to cool and get rid of that excess heat, and that is more wasted heat yet again. Essentially, what all of that means, is that if one still wants to keep using the precious boat anchor to get around with, there is a HUGE room for improvement in the ICE engine.1. im replacing an electric motor on an industrial gas dryer and dont know how much to charge any ideas?I would say about 2402. SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY PLEASE! On an electric motor, what's the difference between volts and watts?Picture electricity as water. Volts are the water's pressure. Amps are the water's volume. Watts are the water's power or ability to do something like put out a fire using its volts and amps. Like a water hose with an adjustable nozzle, when you make the nozzle smaller, the water comes out with more pressure (volts). When you make the nozzle bigger, the water comes out with more volume (amps). Electricity is the same. High voltage will arc through the air but unless it has some current too, it is harmless like static electricity. High current will melt a wire but without some voltage it's harmless, like your car battery. The formula for figuring power is P (in watts) = Volts X Amps. A 12 volt battery that puts out 5 amps can make 60 watts of power. Take the battery voltage up to 24 volts and you can get 120 watts of power. That's why portable drills with higher voltage batteries can make more power.3. How do you change the horsepower in an electric motor?by changing the pulley or gear on output shaft smaller gear will make more power4. how can i determine amperage draw of an electric motor with specs plate missing?most compressors need 20 amp service to run full throttle . I would switch it to a 20 amp service5. How do you increase the horsepower of an electric motor?A Tesla battery is made from many cells, there is a max current rating for each cell, a larger battery has more cells and therefore give out a larger peak current. (Ian ringrose)It is also linked to the naximum output of the electric motor. Which produces the rotation6. what is the best electric motor to put on a 16' canoe?Any trolling motor will do. Be sure to balance out the weight of the battery by making sure to put it on the center line.If it's not even, the canoe will turn in that direction7. How can I increase the power of a small electric motor?Whats the voltage ??? Double it..of course your lifetime is reduced to 1/4 its original. Short of that compressing the spring will take the same amount of time...in the decision of what a horsepower is, time is a key element and is inverse to the horsepower ,,So 1/2 the time twice the horsepower needed. . there ya go from the E.
Why Does My Electric Motor still Not Work!?
Your inverter makes a square wave that motors do not like. In other words, it gives you a peak plus value of voltage, and then it gives you a peak negative value. In regular AC current the wave is a nice smooth sine wave that is generated with a rotating generator so the voltage rises gradually to a peak and then gradually goes down to a negative peak. The magnets on your motor need this gradual rise and fall of voltage. With a square wave your magnets on your motor get a peak value and just when they start to rotate , the voltage is reversed so the magnets do not have time to get momentum going. You need an inverter that makes a true sine wave. I suspect you think you have a sine wave inverter, but is actually a square wave. You might need to put it on an oscilloscope to verify the wave form Also, grainboy is right. A swamp cooler uses very little current to run. It probably does not give many watts back out when inverted. But with no load on the motor it will not use anywhere near the 7.8 amps your motor is rated at. If you have a load on your motor from the start (like an air compressor or water pump scenario, then grainboy is right, there just is not enough juice to get the motor going. If you have a true sine wave inverter, then start the motor with no load on it at all. If you help by giving the shaft a turn with your hand and it runs....then you know for sure it is just way to low of power available to run the motor properly1. How do I grow up the speed of an electric motor?Increase the frequency of the electrical input. I.E. VSD.Adjustable-speed drive - Wikipedia2. building an electric motor for my science fair project?try searching for BOSAK's motor. It's easy to make. I made it in my high school project. It really explains how motor works and you can try your hypothesis too.3. Could an electric vehicle be be designed with a transmission for more torque with a smaller electric motor?You have to think of it as Power at the wheels. To accelerate a given mass, or keep it moving at speed against air drag, needs power,whether you measure it in watts or horsepower. Whatever drive system you use, it will take that amount of power from the batteries. The optimisation part can only be designing for efficiency, so the minimum possible power is lost in the drive chain. That generally means keeping gearing simple, to keep frictional losses and inertial mass down. Internal combustion engines cannot run at 'zero speed' as electric motors can. They also have problems at high revs due to balancing, stress on the con rods and valve bounce. Electric motors can easily run at high speeds without problems. An Engine probably has a usable speed ratio of about 5:1 where an electric motor has virtually no ratio limit. A gearchange simply is not needed.4. Can an electric motor replace a jet engine in terms of performance on aeroplanes? As we are aiming to limit our CO2 emissions in future, what plans do aviation sector have to reduce their share of CO2?That would be the logical choice going forward.In fact there already have been multiple test airplanes designed and flown using electric motors. There are couple issues that need sorting out before that happens commercially. These are listed below. Batteries : Battery Technology needs to improve to give Very High Density light battery holding charge for a significant period of time and charge really quick. Modern day batteries lack here. Case in Example the electric cars. You have a limited range to travel before the battery charge depletes. Same applies to Airplanes too. Also the modern day airplane refuels with Jet Fuel in 30 - 60 minutes (depending on airplane size) and give you a good 6-13 hrs flight time. Same is not possible with modern day Batteries.Power to Weight Ratio of the Electric motors: the modern day Electric motors get limited by the power to weight ratio. That is the amount of power they produce to the weight of the motor itself. The modern Jet engine scores better here. Example a B737 produces close to 46000 HP (actual thrust is measured in pounds of Thrust) for its weight. To generate similar power an electric motor gets too big and heavy (power to weight ratio). Having said all this Technology is moving exponentially. We get limited my Hardware. Once the technology and hardware both get there we will have it.Let's see what happens in the future. The answer maybe be sooner than we think. Can an electric motor replace a jet engine in terms of performance on aeroplanes? As we are aiming to limit our CO2 emissions in future, what plans do aviation sector have to reduce their share of CO2?
What Makes a Electric Motor Better ? What Motor Design Should I Take a Look at. Plz Help 10 Points?
To make an electric powered motor more desirable helpful ought to require a lot of work. genuinely, you should make it draw more desirable cutting-edge meaning utilising thicker cord for the windings. So take out all the former windings and wind new ones. you could also use a more desirable voltage, even if it ought to shorten the motor existence because the brushes and windings would no longer take care of the further warmth1. If the torque of an electric motor is so great, why don't pickup trucks start using them?When in an empty truck, there is not much difference compared to a car. But when using an electric motor in a pickup which is fully loaded is a while different situation.The motor has to product that much energy to move the load and the truck. You would be able to move the truck, maybe even drive it, but the battery power will surely not last for long.Consider the worst case, driving a fully loaded pickup truck, uphill at a speed of 50kmph. The battery will never last long and the life will surely reduce.2. How do you choose an electric motor?If you can use belts and pulleys than any standard speed will work. 1140, 1750, and 3450 rpm's. The other things you have to specify are Voltage, frequency,Horsepower, Single or three phase, and capacitor start if high starting torque is needed on single phase. Frame size. Motor enviroment such as requires open drip proof, totally enclosed, expolsion proof, air over, etc. bearing type, service factor, thermal protection, type of base, cradle mount, rigid mount, face mount, etc. Efficiency standard or high, You do not seem to have near enough informaiton.3. Necessary to lubricate old electric motor? [closed]If there were a problem with lubrication, we would expect that it would be slower when cold, and up to speed after warming up (and making the lubricant more fluid). Because your symptoms are the opposite, it may not be a simple matter of lubrication. There may be some electrical problem that only appears after components warm up.4. When an electric motor, such as an electric drill, is being used, does it act as a generator? If so, what is the consequence of this?No. When it is being used It is not acting as a generator as it is consuming energy not producing it.Now, if you get that electric drill motor and make it spin by wind, water or pedal force, the motor will generate electricity. It's efficiency will depend on several factors but you could generate electricity if, for instance, you are stuck with your bike and your drill on some remote area and there is running water nearby or is windy.5. Which type of DC electric motor is the best suited for driving a mechanical clock?A stepper motor typically gives you 200 steps per revolution. You could gear that to give the second hand a step per second or half-second. You can precisely control it by microcontroller (so you will have an accurate clock) and you still have all the gearing to play with between the second, minute and hour hands. The stepper wo not be cheating. It will be a sensible solution to the problem6. What is more energy efficient Hydraulic pump or electric motor?It depends on the application. For instance, how is the hydraulic pressure obtained? A hydraulic cylinder seems more appropriate for a lifting platform than the gears and levers that would be required for an electric lift7. can you run an alternator with an electric motor?easily, definite. Your alternator is truthfully a three section generator with all 3 stages joined by way of an entire wave rectifier gadget. in case you are taking an alternator and placed all 3 stages in sequence, get rid of the rectifier diodes, you have an output on the threshold of one hundred ten volts. this may be used to run a ac/dc rated motor. Alternator speed would be certain the output considering the fact which you will additionally be tricking the sector regulator to supply an entire field. many ordinary circuts are accessible with ordinary plans yet you would be able to desire to have an alternator which you will cope with to pay for to burn out. The waveform is not what you are able to call a sine wave and a few issues wo not be in a position to run on it. in the journey that your motor has an digital speed administration, beware. additionally, many automobiles have a intense ampere commencing requirement which could appear like a quick circuit temporarily
How the Toyota Prius Works
Toyota Prius Specs There are generally two types of hybrid cars available on the market. There are parallel hybrids, where there are several power options -- the electric motor can operate by itself to power the car, the gasoline engine can operate by itself or both the electric motor and the gasoline engine can work together. There's also the option of the series hybrid, where the gasoline engine, instead of directly powering the wheels, serves only to charge the vehicle's battery to provide power to the electric motor.The Toyota Prius is somewhat unique among hybrids. It's a combination of both of the previous types and is known as a series-parallel hybrid. This is possible because of the Prius' power split device, a special gearbox that connects the gasoline engine, electric motor and generator together into one unit. The device, which was introduced in the second generation Prius, contains a planetary gear set, and it allows the car's various power technologies to work together to move the vehicle. The electric motor is attached to a ring gear, which transfers the power of the motor to a reduction gear unit that's connected to the final drive. The planetary gear set also contains a smaller sun gear and a series of planet gears. All of these gears moving together not only provide power for the car, but they also provide power for the vehicle's generator. When the sun gear simply can't spin any faster, this is the limit of the car's fully-electric operation and the vehicle's internal combustion engine is switched on. This setup allows for increased efficiency since the electric motor and generator run as long as possible before the gasoline engine starts up and begins to burn fuel.The engine in the third generation Prius grew from 1.5 to 1.8 liters, giving the hybrid a boost in horsepower from 110 to 160, an important factor for those wary of the supposed weakness of hybrid cars. Also, the Prius doesn't have to be recharged, since its generator constantly supplies power to the battery. With all of this, the third generation of the Toyota Prius aims to get 50 miles per gallon (21.3 kilometers per liter) in combined city and highway driving, compared to 46 miles per gallon (19.6 kilometers per liter) for the 2009 Prius and 41 miles per gallon (17.4 kilometers per liter) for previous models.For more information about hybrid cars and other related topics, follow the links the next page.
