A motor home employs solar panels to charge sodium nickel chloride batteries that power its ac drive motor as well as all onboard electrical services.
This high-performance hybrid EV opts for a micro turbine that drives a generator to supply power to recharge its battery instead of other hybrids that use a gasoline-powered piston engine for that purpose.
A successful lithium-air battery could provide better energy density by weight (kg) and by volume (liters) than any of the other rechargeable batteries. The lithium-air battery is still a work in progress. It may take several years of research to...
Refueling a vehicle with an internal combustion engine is very simple: You just drive in to a gas station and fill up your tank. You would hope that “refueling” an EV battery would be just as easy. That’s not exactly the case, however, as...
The focus is on getting the most out of digitization, AI, machine learning, wireless and internet connectivity, and driverless self-thinking autos.
Automotive, industrial, and other applications that require smaller size, lighter weight, and more efficient operation are increasingly looking to SiC and GaN solutions.
