Hyundai-Kia Motors Unveiled Solar Charging System Technology

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryHyundai-Kia Motors heralded the era of the solar charging vehicle and accordingly disclosed the solar charging system technology recently. This is their will to gain an advantage in the competition for eco-friendly vehicles by extending mileage and reducing CO2 generation by commercializing the solar charging system technology using the light of the sun.
The solar charging system is being developed to support the main power. It increases fuel efficiency by charging not only eco-friendly vehicles including electric and hybrid ,but typical motor vehicles. Hyundai-Kia Motors is developing 3 types of the solar charging systems, the 1st generation silicone-type solar roof, the 2nd generation translucent solar roof, and the 3rd body-type light lid.
The 1st generation solar roof to be applied to the hybrid model is a form of installing a mass-production silicone solar battery on the general roof. The 1st generation solar roof system can charge a battery approximately 30~60% a day depending on the weather and usage environment.
The 2nd generation translucent solar roof to be applied to the motor model for the first time in the world is a form of installing a translucent solar battery on the panorama sunroof as it is developed with transparent type and open-and-close type options, unlike the 1st generation solar roof, for customers who want openness.
For example, it is a method of securing transparency through a translucent roof panel and charging an internal battery, or an additional solar battery in a motor vehicle.
Lastly, the 3rd generation body-type light solar lid which is in the process of a precedent study to be applied to the eco-friendly model is a method of composing a solar battery as an all-in-one type on the lid (bonnet) and roof steel plate of the car to maximize output.
The solar charging system consists of a solar panel, a controller, and a battery. In the solar panel, energy is generated as the sunlight is separated into an electron and a positive hole when it contacts the surface of the cell of a solar battery.
When a 100W solar panel is installed, 100W is generated per hour based on 1 Sun (noon in the summer, 1000 W/m2 deposits). In other words, it can store 100Wh energy when exposed to sunlight for 1 hour.
Hyundai-Kia Motor is currently putting spurs to the development of the 1st solar roof to apply it to ecofriendly vehicles to be released after 2019.
The researcher of the Environmental Energy Research Team that developed this technology explained that “it is expected that various energy generating technologies including the solar charging system will be connected to vehicles. Vehicles will be power stations actively generating energy, not machines that are just consuming energy passively. Now, the paradigm of car owners is switching from consumers to energy prosumers.”

Semiconductors, Ships, and Petrochemicals Leading This Year’s Anticipated Three Percent Export Growth

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryFor S. Korea’s exports in 2019, the trend is expected to be sluggish and within a narrow range when compared to last year. This is due to a series of negative factors including trade conflict between the United States and China, a rise in interest rates by the United States, the possibility of financial crises in developing nations, etc., in spite of the gradual growth trend of global economy and a steady global demand on IT.
The nation’s exports and imports in 2019 are expected to rise by 0.3 percent to US$625 billion and 3.7 percent rise to US$557 billion, from last year, respectively, accomplishing US$1 trillion in trade for three years in a row.
By item, exports of semiconductors are expected to reach US$130 billion, the nation’s first among single items, spurred by the demand increase for the servers of data centers and the new market growth including artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and self-driving automobiles.
The export increase rate of semiconductors is, however, expected to be much more sluggish, from the thirties last year to five percent this year, caused by the decrease of semiconductors’ unit costs. The export increase rate of ships is predicted to reach 10 percent thanks to the delivery of orders received over the past two years and the base effect. Petrochemicals are anticipated to see a 5.2 percent increase in exports with the help of the increase of export volume by the operation of the domestic new facilities.
Moreover, general machinery and computers are also expected to enjoy increased export volume, due to the investment increase in infrastructure in major nations including China, the United States, and India and the increased demand for SSD used in cloud servers for enterprises and personal PCs, respectively.
For automobiles, exports are expected to reach the record levels of last year, due to the potential financial crises in developing nations affected by the rise in interest rates, in spite of some positive factors including the release of some new car models, the increased demand for some eco-friendly cars and SUVs. The export of display is expected to decrease to 2.2 percent, caused by the decrease in price affected by the oversupply of liquid crystal display (LCD) taking 60 percent of the whole, despite the anticipated upswing in the demand for organic light emitting diode (OLED).
For wireless communication devices and home appliances, the decrease trend of exports is expected to continue. As for steel, the decreased trend is expected to expand, caused by some factors including the restriction of exports by the United States.

Charging Station

https://korean-machinery.com///inquirySIGNET EV INC. has since 2011 been supplying EV chargers to globally renowned car makers including Hyundai, Kia, BMW, VW, Ford, Honda, etc. In 2017, the company has proved it has the world’s highest level technology by acquiring an accreditation of CHAdemo protocol 1.2 version for both large output charging and simultaneous charging.
SIGNET EV’s EV charger has a module-type power conversion unit and thus allows easier maintenance than other companies’ chargers. This is not nearly exposed to the danger of being shut down even when one module remains broken because the remaining modules still operate as they did before. In recent years, as vehicles’ battery capacity and mileages respectively increase, the increasing demand for higher capacity charging system is becoming a growing trend. In line with this trend, the company has already finished developing an ultra-large output charging system (about 350 kW class) and further obtained UL accreditation.
This charging station is what is called the dispenser type of future charging systems that can replace the existing gas stations. Already, until April, this year, this charging station was supposed to be installed on highways and downtown locations in the United States. Also, unlike other existing companies’ charging systems, it is considered in designs for all maintenance activities to be carried out in an open condition of the front door only. Designed to be far slimmer than the existing models, this can be installed at the wall side by being attached, and thus giving more benefits in the management of parking lots.
This charging system also supplies the most efficient charging services for those who are engaged in businesses of car rental, taxi, buses, etc. by automatically charging two vehicles in order and simultaneously charging (called power-sharing technology) of two vehicles in which electricity is divided in the highestefficiency, together with the contribution to the basic role of charging infrastructure.


Moreover, this company has the world’s first-developed V2V charger by which charging between two vehicles can be performed and now supplies emergency charging service for discharged vehicles on the road by using Hyundai IONIQ.
SIGNET EV is proceeding with what is called a microgrid type charging station demonstration project incorporated with the ESS system and renewable energy. In particular, this micro-grid type charging station started to receive great attention as an active-type power management charging station that consumes the power stored at ESS in peak time when the electricity fee is most high and uses electricity from an electrical grid.
