Independent Power-generation Vehicle & Electric-vehicle

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry

[INQ. NO. 2012M22] Total Emission Solution Korea Co., Ltd. (TESK) developed Power Take-Off (PTO) for automatic transmission and applies various application technologies to PTO to manufacture special purpose vehicles. TESK manufactures and supplies an independent power generation system by working together with SsangYong Motor.
TESK developed an independent power generation vehicle by installing a power generator to SsangYong Motor’s REXTON SPORTS/KHAN pick-up truck, which made it safer and more convenient for consumers to use electricity than they would with a portable or the ordinary power generator.
Previously, if someone wanted a power generator that could supply 40 ~ 50kW of electricity, a power generator so large would need to be used that it had to be transported by a truck that can carry up to 2.5 tons of load. The independent power-generation vehicle of TESK comes in the form of a pick-up truck that can carry up to five passengers, which can move quickly to different locations.


It is highly efficient because it can generate 40kW of electricity while making a level of noise equivalent to that of the vehicle’s engine. It can be used as a pick-up truck during an ordinary day and as a power-generation vehicle during an emergency, to operate a water lift pump to supply or drain water or power a welding machine.
Accordingly, the product was supplied for a pilot operation to the facility maintenance crews of Korean mobile telecommunication companies that are in charge of maintaining the antennas, and the users have evaluated the product to be exceptionally useful and cost-effective.
It can be used to provide various services, such as charging, emergency dispatch, simple repair, towing, etc., for electric vehicles, as the electronic controller has been improved, and more stable power generation became possible. Because it can generate power independently, it can supply an unlimited amount of electricity and charge two vehicles at the same time.
Other electric vehicle charging service vehicles charge the electric vehicles using the B2B (battery-to-battery) method, which limited the amount of charge to 30kW per charge, or to an amount that allows the charged vehicle to travel for 30 minutes.
However, the independent power generation vehicle of Total Emission Solution Korea can travel a long distance to charge the electric vehicle, because it can generate power independently using ESS & PTO.

‘Kinergy AS ev,’ a Tire Exclusively for First-Generation Electric Vehicles

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry[INQ. NO. 1811M07] It is reported that Kinergy AS ev, a new product of Hankook Tire released at this time, has remedied various defects of the tire exclusively for firstgeneration electric vehicles, thereby realizing an ultra-low noise environment and providing a comfort similar to that provided by the tire for supercars.
The Sound Absorber Technology has been realized by applying polyurethane sound-absorbing foam to the inner lining of the tire. Here, the sound-absorbing foam disperses the external pressure evenly as well as effectively absorbs the road noise coming into the car.
As a test result of actually applying the Sound Absorber Technology, it was confirmed that the technology reduced the road noise (resonance) by 9.2dB to the maximum, enhancing the quietness of the electric car.
While existing electric car tires have shown poor performance at high speeds or driving abilities, Kinergy AS ev applies the Aqua Pine compound with resin and vegetable oil extracted from conifers. Characteristically, Hankook Tire’s unique technology of applying high silica content ensures agile handling and braking performance in all driving environments.
One strong point of the product is that application of the aramid reinforcement belt suppresses increase of the tire’s diameter caused by the centrifugal force while driving and shows the best handling and kinetic performance in various driving environments. Kinergy AS ev has applied the Extra Load (XL) by increasing the allowable load of the tire.
By applying an extra load, Kinergy AS ev has secured the load-bearing capacity enhanced by 75KG compared with the load index of standard tires and maintains the optimal supporting pressure in any driving environment such as during acceleration, turning, and braking.
As the large-capacity battery is applicable to the electric car instead of fuel, static electricity occurs frequently. However, Kinergy AS ev has applied the chimney rubber structure in the tire for discharging the static electricity flowing through the electric car to the ground surface so that the driver can enjoy comfortable and safe driving.
Wide and strong rib-typed shoulder blocks enhance the handling performance and prevent abrasion of tires, and the crossarrayed edges minimize the block strain and improve torsion. The dimple cooling system effectively dissipates the heat that is condensed in the tire tread due to high-speed driving. When the car is braked, this product minimizes the deformation of the block and maintains the ground plane to provide the best braking force.

Electric Vehicle Automatic Recharging Robot

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry

Samsung C-Lab developed ‘EVAR,’ an Electric Vehicle Automatic Recharging Robot, for the First Time in the Industry Circle.

[INQ. NO. 1810M09] An in-house venture of Samsung Electronics has developed an electric vehicle automatic recharging robot for the first time in the industry. With a robot, you need not touch the high-voltage recharging cable to charge the electric vehicle. There is no need to have a dedicated parking space for installation of fixed facilities. As it is made of waste batteries of electric vehicles left throughout the country, reuse value is also secured. It is notable how Samsung Electronics will commercialize this robot.
According to the industry, a C-lab engaging in the in-house venture development program of Samsung Electronics has recently developed ‘EVAR,’ an electric vehicle automatic recharging robot. EVAR finds by itself any electric vehicle that needs to be recharged, recharges it without human help and then returns to its original location. Its structure is similar to that of a home robot vacuum cleaner.
There existed similar types of recharger including the fixed-type recharging robot jointly developed by Volkswagen and Kuka and the mobile recharger developed by FreeWire of the USA. However, EVAR is the world’s first robot that finds and recharges the vehicle by itself without human help using the autonomous driving function.
In case of EVAR, all that the first driver has to do is to connect the exclusive adaptor to the vehicle charging port and then mount it on the front license plate. All the work is done just by giving a recharging order with a smartphone (NFC communication).
The robot that received the command searches the corresponding vehicle by recognizing the QR code at its own position, recognizes the license plate of the vehicle, and automatically recharges the electric vehicle. This robot is designed to perfectly match the vehicle charging connector and the robot charging port by applying the three-axis (XYZ) precision control algorithm at this time.
The adaptor mounted on the vehicle license plate plays a role of docking station connecting the vehicle with the robot.
EVAR moves at a maximum speed of 2 km/h. LIDAR and ultrasonic sensors are used to detect obstacles and movement routes. This robot is designed to stop immediately in the event of collision as the bumper located at its bottom is equipped with a push switch sensor.
After recharging is completed, the robot automatically returns to the separate recharging facility for recharging the battery built in the robot. The EVAR recharging output released at this time was designed in a slow speed (7 kW), but it is also possible to manufacture a medium-speed recharging robot of 20 to 30kW level. As it is manufactured to the standardized battery pack of the existing electric vehicle, the robot can be commercialized based on the waste batteries without any complicated application work.
