THEKPV is the latest hybrid electric vehicle concept as it can use multiple renewable energy sources, it can convert alternating current and solar radiation electricity into direct current for speeding up on demand. It has a complex electrical circuit that, when the tests are completed, two options for charging the high energy density, more than 90% more efficient main LiFePO4 battery is used, it can be connected to the mains, power supply via the onboard charger 350 watts, or Go Green and emission-free thanks to the onboard solar system with electricity from 100% renewable energies created for free.
The project gained momentum and was started by a man named Terry Hope in 2008, after a thousand hours of e-bike research and development of the personal micro mobility solution electric vehicle concept materialized with four goals:
4. Engineer of an electrical circuit and mechanical system for collecting, storing and harvesting electrical energy.
Use alternative energies for a prototype electro-solar hybrid.
Eliminate greenhouse gas emissions or carbon footprint by charging your battery off-the-grid.
Construct a vehicle with a footprint small enough to be stowed in a Samsonite suitcase for transportation.
Kinetic energy after conversion to DC is stored in a small bank of ultracapacitors for use by the driver as a Power Boost Accelerator. Motion is captured by an additional pinion mounted on the opposite side of the rear wheel to the electric motor, five gears are designed to rotate a number of very small three-phase generators with multipole configuration to reduce cogging torque. Each of these generators convert alternating current to direct electricity with 74% efficiency. The equipment rain frame construction is hand built from Lexan polycarbonate. Usually electric vehicles or electric bikes are equipped with a controller with rain-ability, turning the motor or hub motor into a generator only engaged during braking events. THEKPV aggregate is a variable power source precision tuned during acceleration, rolling, braking and events. A similar technology called KERS – Kinetic Energy Recovery System was used in the 2009 Formula 1 season, with the exception of Formula 1 using a flywheel design from a collaboration between Italian electronics specialist Magneti Marelli and British specialists Flybrid Systems.
A photovoltaic system comprising two groups of Ultra High Power Mono crystalline solar cells are on board. The first group is developed as aerodynamic body panels for improving the drag coefficient, and the second solar group is used when fully charged from the grid is required. This solar system can supply the alternative energy generation directly to the motor, used for the on-board electronics and with a second battery pack on board as well as an accelerator.
