Prototype electric vehicles take a solid leap forward in performance AND range when configured as a hybrid. The Hybrid EV The hybrid EV combines the best features of motors with the best features of engines. The motor contributes its flat HP RPM and variable-load characteristics, short-term high-power endurance, and its light weight. The engine contributes its high-power density and fuel availability. In the process, each offsets the disadvantages inherent in the other. The specific...

The original Trace 1512 was the very first reliable and affordable inverter for home power use. It not only worked, but you needed a shotgun to kill it Well, the fine fellows at Trace are not resting on their laurels. They are busily integrating the latest MOS FET power transistor technology into their supertough inverters. The result is a 25 increase in overall performance, and (here's the nicest part) at no increase in price. The Trace 2012 is 12 VDC to 120 vac, modified sine-wave, power...

Illuminates his steps, providing safe access to his home with minimum power consumption. We strung a double set (36 LEDs-all colors) up on the ceiling of Home Power Central. After my eyes adjust to their lower light output, they provide more than enough illumination to navigate the room. I hooked the LED strings to a programmable pulse generator and flashed all the LEDs at around 8 times per second. The effect is spectacular Backwoods Solar's LED Light Strings are not only well made, but the...

Not all sources of renewable energy are as ethereal as sunlight or the wind. Some are as solid as a tree. Gasification of waste wood offers a renewable energy source for combustion. I recently met Richard and Karen Perez and we discussed Renewable Energy Lifestyles. It appears we have been traveling along parallel paths for the past 14 years. While Richard and Karen were concentrating on electricity, my work was and is toward home thermal self sufficiency (i.e. zero supplemental heat). By...

The Possibility Of Chargeenergy Similar To Massenergy

When we look at the electron-positron annihilation reaction we see that the property of the interactants called mass is transformed into a type of energy which we normally call light. As we all should know, this process is represented by the famous equation Here, E is the energy produced, m is the mass transformed into energy, and c is the speed of light. Now, since we have seen that this process is essentially true, it is valid to ask what happened to the property of the interactants called...

The last year has been one of incredible growth for renewable energy. More systems are being installed than ever before. The hardware not only really works, but is cost effective. The word is getting around that RE can provide electricity where the power line can't. Five years ago I figured that a system had to be at least four miles from the grid to make RE cost effective. This distance has now shrunk to about 1 2 mile. According to SERI (the US Gov't. sponsored Solar Energy Research...

Home Power tests the Heliotrope CC-60 PWM Battery Charge Controller Up to now charge controllers have been basically voltage sensing switches. Well, Heliotrope has a new approach to battery state of charge control. Their new CC-60 is a real STATE OF CHARGE controller-far more than just a voltage regulator. The CC series of controllers are very well made and can handle up to 120 Amps in either 12 or 24 VDC systems. This PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) controller is an all solid state, series type...

As a result of your touting Solar Retrofit Consortium's fluorescent valance light, Model 88 SVL, I ordered one. Unfortunately, it arrived, via parcel post, with damage to the fluorescent tube so that it didn't work. I wrote to the company and promptly received a replacement tube via UPS 2nd Day Air. I agree with your praise of the fixture and wanted you to know that the company was also worthy of praise in its considerateness for its customers. Sincerely, Jack Lesh, Gustavus, AK First of all,...

And 120 Ampere Photovoltaic Charge Controllers

The CC-60 is a series Pulse Width Modulated charge controller providing complete and failsafe battery recharging. State-of-the-Art MOSFET technology gives the fullest possible charge by trickle charging the batteries once they reach float voltage. This is not possible with unreliable relay series type controllers. Standard features include temperature compensation, 12 24 Volt selectable, 16 easy to select S.O.C. voltages, remote voltage sensing and low voltage warning. The CC-60 and CC-120 will...

That the structures described above are only one out of many possible views of a dynamically changing matrix. One might be tempted to wonder whether the conclusions invalidate the deductive processes that arrived at them. Not at all. It is explainable as follows. The amount of bound photonic energy of a particle at rest is directly proportional to its bound tachyonic energy. mo (Constant)*(Tachyonic Energy) (c2) It is thus still a proper quantity to be used in the gravitational force equation....

A month will give a good idea of how much power can be expected year round. The 50 efficiency rule applies to sites with heads greater than 30-40 feet or so. At lower heads everything becomes more difficult. Turbine and pipes become larger and speeds of rotation decrease. The diameter and length of pipeline can now be determined once you have an idea of the potential power output of your site. It is assumed that you are planning on using a TURBINE and will generate ELECTRICITY. Other courses of...
