Well......I like earning a living doing something that interests me, I think most people on ST feel the same (they like what they are doing, doesn't mean it's easy or they are getting rich, it means it is their ingrained interest and they get to feed that interest everyday). I think the majority of the people in the world aim for that too and most don't achieve it.Monzsta wrote: ↑Sat May 01, 2021 9:14 pmAnd why couldn't you make a living from EV's? Look at the bigger picture. Right now you're steeped in the art of enhancing combustion. EV's are far from perfect out of the box. Take my humble Volt, for example. 149 hp and 271 ft/lbs. GM got the bright idea of using the same Voltec powertrain in the heavier Cadillac ELR, and found out the customers really expected more out of a $76,000 car. So they hit the books, got into some fringe motor flux theory using harmonics.nitro2 wrote: ↑Tue Apr 27, 2021 10:43 amWorthy ? Not in the least, in fact less than zero. I don't care if they do 1000 mph in 1 second from a dead stop and change your underwear for you.Monzsta wrote: ↑Mon Apr 26, 2021 9:20 pm
0-60 in under three seconds from the top of the line Teslas isn't worthy of ST? The canvas may change but hot rodding as an art is forever.
The new crop of EV trucks from GM and Rivian will also clear the 3 second bench with 700 - 1,000 horsepower and 6,000+ curb weights.
Many people on ST earn a living from IC engines one way or another, and they want to continue to. They won't be making a living from electric motors, electric has the potential to put many people out of business, and destroy motorsports etc. No way would I ever give electric any platform at all. Electric will go however the gov't wants it to go but I sure won't be helping it along any. Anyone that knows me would never start up an electric discussion with me as they would quickly find themselves on the wrong side of my "electric fence".
People who want to "change the channel", should do it right and get their own "channel" and have at it, instead of screwing with someone else's "channel", and that applies to a whole lot of things in life, not just electric vehicles.
"The new algorithm builds upon a control theory developed in the 1990s that injects harmonics – through a complex series of math equations – into the original sine wave, boosting power.
“In the 90s, they used to call it third harmonic injection,” explained Grewe, “where you take the third harmonic of the primary frequency and inject it back in. That actually makes the motor have more capabilities. We went about ten levels beyond that, so it’s way past third harmonic injection.”
233 hp and 373 ft/lbs was the final result without a single hardware change. Same motors, same inverters, same battery. Just a different method of driving the motors. And that from an OEM that has to warranty it.
Gasoline engines aren't going anywhere. But don't close yourself off to the future. Apply yourself to it.
If I could no longer be involved in IC engines, there are about a bazillion other things I'd rather "apply myself to" than working on battery technology for vehicles. Make that 2 bazillion.
Seriously, forcing EV down an IC person's throat, it's like telling an old time country music fan or a heavy metal fan that they can't listen to their music anymore they will have to listen to rap from now on, oh and they will have to learn to like it.
I know it is hard to comprehend for some, but some people like engines, their primary interest is ENGINES. Their primary interest is NOT cars. People that love cars may not care what they are powered by or how they sound, so long as they go fast and look nice. There is a BIG difference between a car nut and an engine nut.
