High-Efficiency Hybrid-Electric Vehicle
===> A Different Design
small, medium, heavy vehicles
buses, and co-generation in buses and other large engines

A) The Small Efficient Car
  - hit the market with a small affordable hybrid-electric car
  - with plug-in features for cheaper energy
  - with power grid feedback features to collect on FEED-IN tariff

B) My Design of New Efficient Vehicles (US Patent Pending)
  - much smaller engine
  - operating at its best efficiency
  - much larger 3-phase squirrel-cage off-the-shelf electric motor
  - much larger batteries
  - acceleration provided by engine and 3-phase AC motor
        SIMULTANEOUSLY driving the wheel shaft

C) Scalable Design
  - from small cars
  - to diesel-fired buses
  - to CO-GENERATION powered passenger buses, whose AIR-CON is run by
        free energy from the waste heat of the internal combustion engine

            * For a technical explanation on this technology, please visit my YouTube
            channel, specifically, my first two videos there, where I described how this
            co-generation scheme can be acheived. In summary, your 100 kilowatt-hour
            input to an internal combustion engine will give a theoretical work output
            of about 288 kWh, composed of electricity (10) + heating (193) +
            chilling (75) freezing (10). This is acheived through a careful configuration
            of prime-movers and "heat pumps" (

D) Open-Up New Markets
  - my vision opens-up and brings new markets
  - I know the issues in cities - and my design knows these
  - I know the issues in prime-movers - and my design addresses these, too
  - bring the playing field way beyond that of day-to-day competition
  - make a difference in the stockholders' dividends

E) Keep Factories Open
  - in the traditional market some factories will be forced to close
  - with our new approach, WE WILL KEEP MANY OF THEM OPEN

F) Along the Spirit of HENRY FORD
  - save jobs, create new ones, and pay the employees well so that they can
        afford to buy their own car
  - open-up a UNIQUE market worldwide
  - our models will SET THE PACE for others to follow

The Small Efficient Car

The market is craving for an efficient small car on the belief that
something small is essentially efficient because it has a high mileage

My design is for the internal combustion engine to be much
smaller than it is today, and I will reveal how I would calculate
the engine size during a serious engineering discussion

Very definitely, the acceleration of this vehicle will be less, but
I will show during that engineering discussion that the acceleration
of this small car will be the envy of the simple small car

When the grid rates are lower than the production cost of the
hybrid, then plug it into the grid

When the grid FEED-IN rates are better than the production cost of
the hybrid, then run the inverters to feedback to the electric grid

First 3-Phase Electric Run

This establishes proof that the design of the "3-phase
sinusoidal variable-frequency, variable-voltage,
variable-current" (VFI) is working and may now be
scaled for much larger capacities

This existing implementation is able to operate at frequencies
from 10 Hz to 120 Hz, and the limitation is established by the
components used

The design is able to generate any number of "electrical phases"
and "electrical angles", using a single motherboard
The design is also scalable to any capacity, any voltage source,
and any output voltage

The motor is the cost-effective old reliable and readily
available off-the-shelf 3-phase squirrel-cage induction motor

This video was taken while the control electronics was on the
bench, and the vehicle was connected via a 3-wire umbilical cord
Beyond the vehicle propulsion, the VFI may also be used to
provide variable-speed drives in factories, drive pumps for
irrigation, become a general-purpose AC source in integrated
renewable energy applications for homes, buildings,
hospitals, factories, and so on

Load of the Internal Combustion Engine and Fuel Consumption

I impose two rules in this regard, namely,
RULE NO 1 - On the operation of the internal combustion engine
RULE NO 2 - On the operation of the electric motor
I am prepared to discuss these two rules in detail during the
serious engineering discussion that I mentioned above

SCALABLE 3-Phase Sinusoidal Variable-Frequency,
        Variable-Voltage, Variable-Current

The motherboard of the VFI is designed to be scalable to ANY motor
size, ANY input/output voltage, ANY number of phases, and
ANY practicable frequency

Only the chips will be re-programmed for changes in phase angles and
number of phases

This means that the batteries must have enough storage capacity
(bigger than would be used in other designs) and the
"controller/dispatcher computer" must be programmed to allow for
enough battery storage to accept this extra load

SCALABLE - The controls of this hybrid design is scalable

   1 - from a small car - Standard controls and
         programs, with "set-points" calibrated for the
         operating conditions of the system
   2 - to a larger vehicle - Same as #1, except that the
         actuators are rated with higher torques, currents
         and voltages
   3 - to a diesel-fired bus - Same as #2, except that there
         is a procedure to control the temperature of the
         combustion chamber, so that the diesel engine is
         started with the minimum of emission
   4 - to a co-generation bus - This is the EPITOME of
         engineering design, where the waste heat
         (which is FREE ENERGY) is used to do work.

   I have further views regarding Co-Generation in
   buses, and I will share these during the
   engineering discussion
