A Solar Car Primer: A Guide to the Design and Construction of Solar-Powered Racing Vehicles

This fascinating primer on sun Racing actually begins from the floor up, describing how the interactions of a car with its setting circumscribe its final luck, from aerodynamics to resistance and propulsion. through demonstrating how one can mathematically version those underlying actual phenomena, the writer is helping sunlight racing opponents conscientiously decide upon key features of the automobile, resembling weight and form, to supply optimum velocity.


Die komplexe Nutzfahrzeugtechnik anschaulich darzustellen ist Ziel dieses Werkes, das aus nine einzelnen, in sich abgeschlossenen Beiträgen besteht. Kompakt und intestine verständlich bietet es den Überblick heutiger Technik im Nutzfahrzeug. Ausgehend von den grundlegenden Anforderungen des Kunden werden die konzeptionsbestimmenden Charakteristika und Systeme in geschlossenen Beiträgen fundiert dargestellt.

Example text

A fixed part of the voltage drop is due to the electrodes. A general lighting service T12 48 inch (1200 mm) lamp operates at 430 mA, with 100 volts drop. High output lamps operate at 800 mA, and some types operate up to 1500 mA. The power level varies from 10 watts per foot (33 watts per meter) to 25 watts per foot (82 watts per meter) of tube length for T12 lamps. The simplest ballast for alternating current use is an inductor placed in series, consisting of a winding on a laminated magnetic core.

The patent application indicated that the lamp had been created as a superior means of producing ultraviolet light, but the application also contained a few statements referring to fluorescent illumination. S. patent had met with numerous delays, but were it to be granted, the patent might have caused serious difficulties for GE. At first, GE sought to block the issuance of a patent by claiming that priority should go to one of their employees, Leroy J. Buttolph, who according to their claim had invented a fluorescent lamp in 1919 and whose patent application was still pending.

Electronic starters contain a series of capacitors that are capable of producing a high voltage pulse of electricity across the lamp to ensure that it strikes correctly. Electronic starters only attempt to start a lamp for a short time when power is initially applied and will not repeatedly attempt to restrike a lamp that is dead and cannot sustain an arc. This eliminates the re-striking of a lamp and the cycle of flashing that a failing lamp installed with a glow starter can produce. 3 seconds, which gives a virtually instant start.
