Air Powered Car

  2. 2. <ul><li>One of the major problems facing today is air pollution. </li></ul><ul><li>To reduce the world’s pollution problems One possible alternative fuel is the compressed air. </li></ul><ul><li>There are ongoing projects that are developing a new type of car that will run on compressed air. </li></ul><ul><li>The technology behind compressed air cars being develop. </li></ul><ul><li>These cars Safe to use ,safe to users, and are also environment friendly. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The engine will run compressed air. </li></ul><ul><li>Tank material ,pressure 300 bars Engine specification. </li></ul><ul><li>The MDI’s air powered car has incorporated various innovative systems. 4 cylinder, 800cc, 25HP(18.5KW), Wt 28Kg. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Air at 100 degree celcius & 300 bar pressure used as fuel. </li></ul><ul><li>Volume of air increased & this energy used to drive pistons of air power car. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Air powered car working Speed is high at 110km/h. </li></ul><ul><li>At top speed of 200km. </li></ul><ul><li>The 8 liters oil required ,the driver will have to change every 50,000km. </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic transmission, rear wheel drive </li></ul><ul><li>Rack & pinion steering </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Air tanks </li></ul><ul><li>Chassis </li></ul><ul><li>Air filter </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical system </li></ul><ul><li>Engine of air car </li></ul><ul><li>Body </li></ul>
  7. 7. 1.Composition of air tank 2.Manufacturing of air tanks on special machines
  8. 8. 3.Location of air tank with a protective plate fixed on chassis 4.Chassis of air car
  9. 9. 5.Engine used in air car 6.Actual picture of body of air car
  10. 10. 7. Location of air tank and engine

  13. 13. <ul><li>Total mass: 820 kg. </li></ul><ul><li>Low consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Three-stage expansion, almost isothermic. </li></ul><ul><li>Maximum power (25hp) 18.3 Kw </li></ul><ul><li>@ 3000 rpm. </li></ul><ul><li>Maximum torque 6.3 kg-m @ 2500 rpm. </li></ul><ul><li>Rear mount engine and Rear wheel drive. </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic continuously variable </li></ul><ul><li>transmission. </li></ul><ul><li>Suspension: Front: coil springs and </li></ul><ul><li>Rear: pneumatic. </li></ul><ul><li>Disk brakes. </li></ul><ul><li>Rack and pinion steering. </li></ul><ul><li>Tires: classic tyres replaced with &quot;green&quot; tyres increase mileage by 5% </li></ul>DIG: FOR COMPERSION AIR CYLINDER
  14. 14. <ul><li>These comes under zero emission vehicles. </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical vehicle batteries use toxic electrolytes, these electrolytes have to be produce some pollution ,battery replaced every 2-3 years. </li></ul><ul><li>This car use natural air ,compress air more efficient. </li></ul>TABLE FOR COMPARISION Comparison Nissan Toyota Air powered car Fuel type electric electric Air powered car Annual fuel cost $331. $391. $220. Green house gas emissions 3.5 4.1 1.2 Price(msrp) $50999. $42000. $14000.
  15. 15. <ul><li>Refinery output 100% </li></ul><ul><li>1.Tranmission losses 65.85 </li></ul><ul><li>a) Electric compression motor: 5% loss </li></ul><ul><li>high pressure compressor:50% </li></ul><ul><li>solar energy recovery:10% Gain </li></ul><ul><li>MDI.C.A.T.Motor:60% </li></ul><ul><li>thermal energy recovery:94% </li></ul><ul><li>Drive energy (1)remaining:13.86% </li></ul><ul><li>x wt./ inertia compensating factor(2) </li></ul><ul><li>useful energy delivered:20% </li></ul><ul><li>b) Battery,charge:30%,discharge & motor loss 35.5% </li></ul><ul><li>drive energy(1) delivered remaining:15.9% </li></ul><ul><li>x wt/inertia compensating factor(2):0.83% </li></ul><ul><li>useful energy delivered:13.2% </li></ul><ul><li>2. Useful energy delivered :9.4% </li></ul><ul><li>3. Useful energy delivered :13% </li></ul>
  16. 16. 8.High pressure comressor at air station 9.High pressure gas jet for refueling air vehicals
  17. 17. <ul><li>Advantages- </li></ul><ul><li>Natural air & cheaply available. </li></ul><ul><li>Light weight. </li></ul><ul><li>Runs above 60 kmph on gasoline or diesel etc . </li></ul><ul><li>Pneumatic system . </li></ul><ul><li>Negative pollution . </li></ul><ul><li>Air expelled from engine can used for AC of car. </li></ul><ul><li>Refueling (at station -3 min.) </li></ul><ul><li>(at home -4 hours) </li></ul><ul><li>Limitation- </li></ul><ul><li>1.This car is that its top speed is 96.5kmph </li></ul><ul><li>2.Filing a car with 300 lit of compressed air with normal compressor take over up to 4 hours. </li></ul><ul><li>3.Power needed to developed compress air is electricity. </li></ul><ul><li>4.Noise generated by engine while operation. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>The air powered car in general powered by air. The air powered car is potential contender in the ZEVs market. provided certain key technology is demonstrated yet these vehicle are under research level. The air car will become very popular because of its less cost. Less weight per power produced over IC engines electric vehicles. This environmental friendly vehicles are also has some drawback on such problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus the AIR POWERED CARS are the best options which provide most comprehensive answer to the present urban pollution problems in simple, economic and inoffensive manner. Thus these vehicles are safe to manufacture, safe to use, safe to users and also environment friendly. </li></ul><ul><li>*****  </li></ul>
