Performance roughly equivalent to a 60hp outboard.
Presumably this would mean 45kW continuous.
As a 3-phase induction motor this is 15kW 4-pole, 110kg.

Any smaller suggestions?

Re: Electric boats

My thought that there must be a size where the sun+battery can keep it going non-stop at a respectable pace.
Well at least until the batteries wear 8+ years.
But I'm thinking big.

Re: Tesla Killer - White Polo TSi - Perth

I watched a young guy scream past me in a 100kph zone. Looses control, smacks the inside lane barrier, swerves to the outside lane and crash into a tree. 100kph+ into a tree! He got out of that without a scratch - through the back door mind you. He didn't want me to call the police because he was dr...

Re: Electric boats

I was looking up the electric solar catamarans a couple of weeks back. I came to the conclusion that boats consume 10x what a car does. So ~1,500Wh/km - sorry I'm not a boatie you'll have to convert it back to boat terms. Rotto and back would need like 90kWh of pack. Even a leisurely cruise around t...

This is the cooling plate that goes between the batteries.

Seems overkill. Are you sure you need to go to all that trouble?
I'd go -

Guess it really depends on how lossy the battery is and how much each plate can cool.

Re: LABOR PROMISES ELECTRIC CAR PROJECT IN LATROBE VALLEY

That's ridiculous. So a company already doing it, struggling to make it work goes out. Within a few months the govt signs a deal with another company that doesn't even have a factory or the land for a factory to build the same thing. Would have made a better headline that govt saves electric bus com...

Re: Troubleshooting an old 24V charger

After that, you need experience with electronics, and it's likely not worth the time to repair it. Usually in these cases I replace the active parts. Its quicker than trying to diagnose random stuff. My guess is 1. resonator - stops micro from running (Blue thing next to micro) 2. Output Power driv...

Arizona State University -> Fluidic Energy -> NantWorks -> NantEnergy What a path to get a battery to commericialisation. Not too sure how Fluidic energy became part of Nantworks. And as always manufacturing COST is not sale PRICE. In AU it probably more like $300/kWh. Which is still quite good. So ...

Re: Importing Batteries from USA

I believe that is because there are only small amount available at any given time and not from the same supplier.
Nowhere in the amounts that would be worth while to import in bulk.

Suziauto has his own range of batteries as an alternative to leaf cells.
