IIT-BHU Researchers have developed a new technology which can charge electric vehicles (EVs) in just two minutes.
Instead of spending thousands of dollars on charging stations, one of the best and most effective ways to save money is by charging your EV at home. Even with existing charging technologies, the cost of placing these charging stations can get pretty expensive.
There are tons of reasons why you shouldn’t own an electric car like a Tesla Model S (full review). This new technology from IIT-BHU researchers seems to make a lot of sense. They claim that EV owners who charge their cars overnight would be able to save up to 50% as compared to
There is a massive growth of electric cars in the country and due to their low weight, they are now popular. However, electric vehicles (EV) and charging systems are not compatible with the existing infrastructure. The cost of charging an electric car is high and EV drivers are not able to park them anywhere freely.
The growing popularity of electric cars has made it hard to find free parking spots; thus existing charging stations are being removed at regular intervals. However, this poses problems for EV drivers, who cannot just park these vehicles wherever they like. In order to increase their use, the IIT Patil Institute is developing a new technology for charging EVs that includes a 4G connection and a network of charging stations
Charging electric vehicles (EVs) is a huge challenge for our government and private companies. We need to create an affordable charging infrastructure that meets the needs of EV owners.
EVs are an emerging technology. India is still new to the EV market, so we need to rapidly upgrade our charging infrastructure to become an industry leader for EVs in the country.
IIT-BHU is a premier institute and has a long history of excellence in engineering and research. The IIT-BHU EV Charging Station (ECS) will help us tackle this challenge by offering affordable access to EVs, while preventing congestion on the roads. The ECS will be installed at four
The problem today is that a majority of the mass-produced automobiles have the same issue — they have to be recharged, at an inconvenient and high cost due to the limited supply of charging stations.
In urban areas, electric vehicles are much more expensive than regular cars. Many electric vehicle owners find that they’re unable to get a charging station as they commute to work every day. This limitation makes it harder for them to just plug in and leave their car at home.
IIT-BHU researchers developed a new technology, called Hyper Charger, which allows an electric vehicle owner to use the charger he already has with his car in an unlimited number of places — like office complexes
Charging an electric vehicle may involve a few different steps, but most take place at a gas pump.
With the advent of the electric vehicle, car charging stations are all inescapable. Car batteries are also heavy and require a lot of space. Car owners also have to pay for parking and gas.
IIT-BHU researchers are working on a rechargeable battery that is lightweight, can be charged in any environment, and can be parked anywhere. The battery is also highly energy efficient, has no heat-trapping properties and can store electricity for more than 5 years! Nothing compares to IIT-BHU’s breakthroughs!
If you’re a regular electric car driver, then chances are you’ve been stuck in traffic jams (what!). If it’s your first time driving an electric car, there’s no doubt that the experience is new and enjoyable but the actual cost of ownership is huge.
The best way to understand why charging costs so much is to go through a real-life experience of being at a traffic jam. A study shows that because of the congestion and poor handling of the cars by drivers, half of all parked vehicles are never charged with energy.
One way of solving this problem is to use special hidden charges in metal plates — if you see them, the car will be charged under these plates
Electro-vehicles are the future of auto travel. With the advent of affordable, plug-in electric vehicles, the auto industry has a real chance to become much more sustainable, environmentally friendly and financially profitable.
IIT-BHU is a premier public sector research university in India. The institution was established in 1979 by a group led by Dr. P.K. Srivastava and consists of campuses in New Delhi and Guwahati, India’s only working ultra modern (UM) city with over 7 lakh students. It has grown to become a university with a national footprint across all disciplines with alumni spread across academia, business and politics locally and globally, to include our very own
Many of us would like to be a part of the future and own an electric car, but lack the funds to own one.
The idea is far from being a new solution to this problem — but still, something that should be considered.
Cameras have made it impossible for us to drive without at least one person behind the wheel. At most, we can take it on the road when we want and legally drive it, but again: should we really do that? IIT-BHU researchers believe they can now make all car owners see what we are missing by building EVs. IIT-BHU Researchers have built an amazing way of charging these electric cars
How hard is it to charge an electric vehicle?
Understanding the safety and security concerns of charging vehicles is a must, but getting electricity back to our vehicles are difficult when natural or manmade obstacles cut off the source of power.
Researchers from Institute of Information Technology and School of Engineering & Technology, IIT-BHU (India’s premier engineering college) has developed an innovative technique that allows charging of electric cars from multiple sources. More than 200 electric vehicles were connected to one outlet during one launch event in Dhubai, Himachal Pradesh in March 2017. The technology uses ‘smart electrical sockets’ that are embedded within transformer substations and can do away with the requirement
Not only does charging an electric vehicle with a conventional vehicle charger take a significant amount of time and effort, it also requires specialised tools and challenges, especially when it comes to maintenance and charging.
A simple fact of life is that fires are inevitable. Badly maintained electric vehicles can easily catch fire due to unsafe charging processes, so IIT-BHU researchers have developed a new technology that will modify a conventional vehicle charger to charge electric vehicles in under 3 minutes!
This breakthrough technology will reduce costs exponentially. It’s time to become an electric vehicle owner & drive it all the way!
