Heater program cuts pollution health problems
The new design uses four small heat exchangers, each one measuring 0.36 inches and 0.24 inches diameter, that provide nearly 24,000 watt-hours of heat in a 1.5-pound box. The heat exchangers in the program also allow for greater cooling efficiency, according to the researchers.
It’s the first time a «heat engine» is available in a commercial product, and the researchers hope it will enable manufacturers to add more energy efficient models to make them more efficient for cars and vehicles.
More effective heat engines
Other applications for heat engines include helping to keep the atmosphere cool at night, reducing emissions of carbon monoxide and water vapor, making it easier for heat-affected vehicles to s넷마블 포커top running, reducing engine noise, and helping to increase fuel efficiency of electric vehicles.
«At the end of the day, one구로 출장 안마 or two of these [heat engines] would make a huge difference in lowering carbon emissions, if it ever did happen,» Ruhle said. «It’s an amazing technology, the technology that could make a huge difference.»
There are now about 1,300 hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles sold worldwide, according to Toyota Motor Corp. The U.S. market accounted for more than 18 percent of all fuel-cell car sales in 2014, but most are imported. However, U.S.가평안마 market share is growing steadily, with electric cars accounting for just 8 percent in 2017.
The new fuel-cell-electric vehicle concept would improve on these market-driven trends, Ruhle said, and it will make hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles more affordable, and ultimately, more fuel efficient.
