Because the starting of the century, electric items have invaded our daily lives. Now, electrical energy is coming to be visible as an answer to the pollutants attributable to autos. whereas this transition has remained very sluggish over the last ten years, it's been accelerating because the statutory constraints and desires of the industry have replaced. whether the electrical motor vehicle itself fails to dominate the industry, electrical traction is taking an immense position in our force to maneuver clear of gas-powered automobiles. one other answer, hybrid cars, mix resources of power (electric and chemical), decreasing the worldwide intake of fossil fuels. gasoline telephone automobiles also are some of the most promising applied sciences for the long run, with the means to exploit any gasoline - hydrogen being definitely the right gas ecologically, yet restricted via infrastructure and garage matters. This e-book explores some of these diversified strategies for relocating our cars from fossil gas intake to new, extra environmentally-friendly energy sources.Content:

The electric Peugeot 106 and Citroën Saxo have 260 kg of NI-Cd on-board battery, the on-board energy is 12,480 Wh; – the nickel-metal hydride battery (Ni-MH) whose specific energy is 75 Wh/kg. It is used on Japanese and American vehicles; – the lithium-ion battery (Li-ion) which is only just being marketed today and whose specific energy is about 120 Wh/kg. It was tested on the 106 VEDELIC prototype which has 25,000 Wh of on-board energy for 250 kg of battery. This battery is now used on all new electric vehicle projects.
Gasoline engine Direct injection For these engines, one of the main innovations relates to the development of direct fuel injection, where the fuel is directly injected in the cylinder, which was initiated by Mitsubishi in 1998, followed by Renault, PSA, and VW. In contrast to indirect injection (injection into the intake manifold), which is currently generalized, the advantages brought by this technology are mainly: – A more precise and more flexible control of fuel metering in the combustion chamber brought by the control of the initial time, the duration, the pressure or even the number of injections.
Diagram of an on-board charger using a 50 Hz transformer The main constraints of this type of charger: – volume; – insulation between the network and the battery; – the shape of the absorbed current; – the use of a domestic plug (also dealt with in standardization); – the maximization of the power available on a domestic wall-plug. Today, chargers are of the switching–system type (PWM, pulse with modulation). 5. PWM charger Make-up of a current electronic charger: 1 conditioning of the network current (rectifier); 46 Automotive Electricity 2 power oscillator; 3 high-frequency transformer and rectification.
