EnviroTek Drive System

Energy-Efficient Drive System

EnviroTek integrates three basic automotive components into one drive system; a small 1.2-liter internal combustion engine, electric motor/generator and dry plate clutches.

When assembled the three base components create a simple yet technologically advanced, energy-efficient drive system. It is computer controlled, and integrated with electronic power drives, inverters and batteries.

This drive system developed by EnviroTek is installed as a bolt-to-bolt replacement for an engine and transmission that can be installed in vehicles for a number of different applications.

Key Benefits of EnviroTek Drive Systems

  • Low cost
  • Simple design
  • Quick to market
  • Regeneration-braking
  • Idle start-stop functions
  • Reduction of operational parasitic losses
  • Use of standard off-shelf parts and components
  • Multiple modes of operation (full electric, series, parallel hybrid and direct drive circuits)
  • ‘V’ architecture fitted longitudinally (bolt-to-bolt replacement of a standard engine)

Unique Compounded Motor Matrices Drive System

The EnviroTek Engine Technology (ETET) Drive System delivers the best performance for creating stored and/or drive energy for a vehicle. Adaptive software driven by an array of sensors allows the vehicle to operate in several modes of performance while greatly reducing energy consumption. No other hybrid PHEV system incorporates charging modes and variations of electric, hybrid/electric or internal combustion engine (ICE) direct drives concurrently based on operating demands.

Utilizing standard type dry clutches to engage and disengage specific power units including an ICE, electric motor-generators and electric drive motors, allows the ETET hybrid PHEV drive system system to deliver vehicle power vis a vis “compounding effect” of all sources of power to the drive wheels. ETET’s adaptive software automatically determines the best combination of engine and motors to deliver the required power in the most efficient manner.

Additional off line energy can be supplied to the vehicle battery storage system through “plug-in” charging stations or external generators. Off line charging adds additional range to the vehicle in electric and/or electric + charging modes.

State of the Art

The major current issues in the auto-industry related to PHEVs are the selection process of the best type of battery system which complements the technology most, the reduction or elimination of overall parasitic losses created in transferring drive power, the creation of electricity through kinetic energy transfer, and the reduction in fuel consumption.

EnviroTek has identified that the low hanging fruit for near term efficiency improvements lie in two major areas:

  • The reduction in parasitic losses in constant and variable-speed electric drive units through the diminution of belts, gears, and multiple motor drives.
  • Increase the efficiency of the electric mechanical drive itself through improvements related to transmissions, direct drive motors, and remote controller “cable connected” power electronics.

Comparison: Annual Cost of Fuel Based on Current Fuel Costs

EnviroTek Comparison

Based on pilot tests, the EnviroTek Series Hybrid-Electric Vehicle will achieve an average fuel economy of 39.8 MPG, surpassing the average fuel economy of 2009 Ford F-150 by more than 127%. In larger pickups trucks with higher curb weights, will achieve more than 31.2 MPG, delivering a fuel economy greater than 179% of the 2005 Ford F-150.
