Despite the evolutionary development of electric motors over the past hundred years, they all work on the same principle and have a number of disadvantages. Linear Labs revised the device of the electric motor and offered a more efficient version of its design. According to the company, the increase in capacity was about 200%.
During the tests, the specialists managed to achieve a threefold increase in torque, an increase in power at the level of 200% and a reduction in energy consumption by 10% compared to traditional electric motors.
The proposed huntable electric turbine uses not one, but four rotors with an unusual arrangement of magnets. At the same time, during rotation, the number of windings with which the rotors interact can be variable due to the special design of the endplates rotating independently. Thus, in the new engine class, power and torque are significantly less dependent on the effect of the magnetic field.
Thanks to the principle of operation of the turbine Huntstable can significantly reduce the cost of production of engines, the basis for which will be iron-ferrite magnets, rather than expensive neodymium. And compared to a permanent magnet motor, they will produce a large torque at lower rpm.
Engineers of Linear Labs continue to improve the created prototypes and by 2020 they plan to launch mass production of small units for scooters and electric bicycles. In 2021, the company wants to start the production of a new generation of engines for electric vehicles.
