In and out with 10-minute electrical vehicle recharge

Penn State engineers have demonstrated that they can charge an electrical vehicle in ten minutes. Lithium-ion batteries degrade when rapidly charged at ambient temperatures under 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The rapid cooling of the battery would be accomplished using the cooling system designed into the car. 2,800 charging stations across the U.S. will be funded by the more than $2 billion penalty paid by Volkswagen after admitting to diesel emissions cheating. The self-heating battery uses a thin nickel foil with one end attached to the negative terminal and the other extending outside the cell to create a third terminal. A temperature sensor attached to. to a switch causes electrons to flow through the nickel foil to complete the circuit. This rapidly heats up the Nickel foil through resistance heating and warms the inside of the. the battery. This will be in 500 locations. These charging stations will be filled with nickel foil and will be used for charging stations in 500 times the battery.

Optimizing Electrical Motor Efficiency: Get More Bang for Your Buck

Electrical motors are devices that convert electrical energy into mechanical force. They operate on the principles of electromagnetism, using the interaction between winding currents and magnetic fields. Some motors, like those used in the transportation industry can reverse the effect and generate.
