  • Efficient solar power equipment for electric vehicles: improvement of energy conversion efficiency for charging electric vehicles

    Electric vehicles usually need a battery which has been charged by external electrical power stations. This is in some cases a serious burden for wide spread use. In this paper, we have proposed the most feasible solar power generation system mounted on the electrical vehicles to charge smart battery during running. In our experiments, about 700 W to 800 W electrical power is supplied on a usual daytime, which is about 2 times of conventional power level. We have also proposed two kinds of efficiency tracking system for electrical vehicles use, one is the feedforward type which sets a new condition point according to the change of energy (this is called QF1-method), the other is the robust efficiency tracking climbing method (QF2 method). Finally, experimental results have shown the effectiveness of our proposal.

  • Review of multiple input DC-DC converters for electric and hybrid vehicles

    Batteries, ultra capacitors, fuel cells, and solar arrays are widely used in electric and hybrid vehicles (EVs/HVs) as an electric power source or an energy storage unit. In the structure of the electric power system of modern EVs/HVs, more than one of these units may be employed to improve the performance and efficiency; hence utilization of a multi-input DC-DC converter is inevitable to obtain a regulated bus DC voltage. In this paper, a review of multiple input DC-DC power electronic converters (MI-PEC) devoted to combine the power flow from several on-board energy sources of an EV/HV is presented. Several multi-input DC-DC converters based on various topologies are studied and analyzed. The operating modes of each topology is presented and compared with other topologies.

  • Battery concepts for lunar base applications

    Battery and fuel cell applications for lunar base operations are identified. Principal uses are for mobile (vehicle) power and energy storage to provide nighttime power where principal daytime power is by solar power systems. Vehicle applications are classified according to range, elapsed time, and duty cycles and appropriate batteries, semi or full fuel cells are described. Indirect fuel cell systems using storable chemical reactants to generate normally cryogenic eiectrochemical fuels (O/sub 2/, H/sub 2/) are presented as alternatives to direct batteries or fuel cells. Iran-oxygen batteries derivable from terrestrial iron-air systems are proposed for several applications including large scale nighttime energy storage since reactants are readily derivable from lunar sources.

  • Traffic information collection system powered by solar cells

    One requirement for a vehicle detector, which is one type of traffic information collection system, is low power consumption and wireless operation. Behind this requirement is the desire to collect traffic information without the need to supply AC power on roads where a commercial power source is unavailable, the importance of aesthetics in urban settings, and conversion to the wireless transmission of detection signals. Further considerations are the call for measures to protect the global environment and the utilization of "clean energy" as an environmental measure. This paper describes a practical traffic information collection system which consists of vehicle detectors powered by small solar cell power sources and a free-space optical transmission device that transmits the detection signals linked by the vehicle detectors.

  • The choice of silicon wafer for the production of low-cost rear-contact solar cells

    SunPower manufactures high-efficiency rear-contact solar cells. To offer these cells at a competitive price, SunPower requires a source of low-cost wafers with the necessary lifetime, thickness and resistivity to attain a cell efficiency of at least 20%. With simulation and experiment, this paper investigates how each of these parameters affects the efficiency of SunPower's low-cost, rear-contact solar cell. It concludes that the cell efficiency approaches an optimum when the wafers have (i) a lifetime in excess o 1 ms, (ii) a thickness of 160-280 /spl mu/m, and (iii) a resistivity of 2-10 /spl Omega/cm (n-type). The requirement of the high lifetime restricts the wafer choice to FZ, PV-FZ or n-type Cz; but the wide tolerance on wafer thickness and resistivity help lower the wafer cost by maximizing the yield from a silicon ingot.

  • An assignment project based approach for engineering education

    The paper introduces a new education method named assignment project to the engineering curriculum with the aim of improving students' mastery of course materials and practical problem solving skills. Many innovative education methods with the same objective have been created and implemented, such as final year projects and project-based courses. However, they have shortcomings that need to be solved by other methods. The proposed education method makes up for the gap, which is a five-step process yielding various assignment projects for a number of engineering courses. Based on a partially designed real-world engineering system, students use their knowledge and skill in the course to fulfil the design in these projects. A case study on solar vehicle is given to illustrate the method step by step. The method is thus verified to be an effective auxiliary tool in the engineering education.
