Pioneers who have been trying to make the electric car compete against their internal combustion engine counterparts have followed a path that won’t succeed. The assumption is that an electric car must be recharged via our existing electrical power grid. David Heron, in his Torque News article, discusses that the ideal situation will be that people recharge their electric vehicles overnight when power demand is lowest and the costs are lowest. The real challenge for electric vehicles, however, is that recharging via the grid, which in the United States comes predominately from coal fired power plants, is not very green at all. The premise that electric cars need to also rely on a centralized, distributed source not the best solution. A better solution is to make the electric car independent from fossil fuels completely. This can be done by 1.) improve the motor drive system in an electric car to use less energy; resulting in A.) smaller and/or lighter batteries, and B.) increased range/performance and 2.) A battery recharging system that does not rely on the grid and utilizes green technologies. 3.) Smaller/lighter batteries. One reason solar and wind power is not considered a viable recharging system today is that both are inconsistent and both require a significant array to be at the appropriate size to provide the high voltage/amperage that can rapidly recharge an electric vehicle. The solution lies in a new ultra efficient drive motor that uses significantly less input energy (extended range and allowing smaller/lighter batteries) without compromising performance. Second, the electric car must use an ultra-high efficiency motor/generator that can recharge the electric car without the grid, from only “green” sources. The Independent Energy P6G motor/generator will enable a relatively small solar array in combination with a relatively small wind turbine to provide more than enough energy to rapidly recharge an electric vehicle, 24/7, year round, even after the sun sets or when the wind is calm. The P6G motor/generator approaches the generation of energy in a new, patent pending method which is far more efficient and will allow small home based and independent solar and wind arrays to be the only source for rapid electric vehicle recharging.
