Bloom Box Powered Electrical Vehicle with Carbon Nanotubes Wound Motor Drive Train

Razib Kumar Ghosh, Mohammad Abdul Mannan

Abstract


The electrical energy is the main concern to run of an electrical vehicle. This electrical energy is
generally obtained from a bank of batteries. These batteries require lot of space, and they are
heavier. These facts affect the performance and efficiency of an electrical vehicle. Bloom box
can utilize both fossil (natural gas) and renewable (stream air) sources to produce electricity. Its
operation is noiseless. It can supply higher energy although it is smaller in size. Its size and
weight is m Zore less than batteries which are used in electrical vehicles. So battery can be
replaced by bloom box in the power distribution panel of an electrical vehicle to supply
electricity. In addition, carbon nanotubes offer higher conductivity and thermal stability than
copper. So copper can be replaced by carbon nanotubes based yarn of electrical motor in the
drive trains to reduce energy loss, increase efficiency and reduce size and weight of the motor as
well as whole electrical vehicle. In this paper, the carbon nanotubes assisted motor drive train is
proposed for an electrical vehicle which is powered by bloom box. The performance of proposed
electrical vehicle has been verified using various mathematical calculation and simulation
works. The simulation has been done using COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 for Bloom Box layout
and Matlab/Simulink model for direct current (DC) series wound type motor.
