Research Question: In what ways and to what extent would any actual or advertised fully electric car, if used by a typical resident of greater Atlanta, solve any energy-based problem?


The environmentalists' hot favorite “zero-emissions” electric car is more often than not criticized as an “emissions elsewhere” vehicle, as the electric power required to charge its batteries requires to be produced in power plants that generate emissions. This point is reasonable, but we should then find out what amount of fumes an electric car emits per mile - once all emissions are taken into account, initially the oil or gas well that accounts for source fuel extraction, then checking for the concluding consumption of power by the motor of the car. When we look at the statistics, we notice that the electric cars are more efficient in terms of energy and less contaminating the environment. This article looks at advertised fully electric cars, which makes use of commodity lithium ion batteries rather than lead-acid batteries or nickel-metal-hydride batteries like other electric cars in the market. Its lithium ion-based car is very great well-to-wheel efficient in terms of energy and in terms of emissions it is very low well-to-wheel, with a very astounding performance and convenience which is superior to all the others compared with. We would look and compare, if it is used by a typical resident of greater Atlanta, would it be able to solve any energy-based problem or not. (Healey, 06)

Efficiency in terms of energy

To account for the well-to-wheel efficiency in terms of energy of any vehicle, the energy component of the source fuel is analyzed (for example crude oil or natural gas) because it is derived from the land. After that the energy component of this fuel is tracked since it is turned into its ultimate fuel product (for example electric power or gasoline), taking out the energy required to transfer the energy to the car. In conclusion, the efficiency of fuel of the car is analyzed (for example its advertised mpg) to equate the equation. All fuels can be explained by means of the energy per unit of mass. This piece of research will articulate the energy component of fuels by means of mega-joules per kilogram (MJ/kg). Well-to-wheel efficiency is therefore articulated by means of kilometers driven per mega-joule (km/MJ) of source fuel utilized - a greater number is considered to be superior.

Fixes: Charging and Distribution System

While the electric car is perfected in its mechanical features and control electronics, there remains the problem of autonomy, which has so far penalized this technology. This is due to the vast difference that exists between energy density of gasoline (or other liquid fuel) and electric batteries. So with 40 kg of diesel, diesel car can travel between 800 and 1200 km in highway driving at a speed of 130 km / h. Compared with current technologies, it takes 200 kg of battery to an electric car can travel about 170 km in stock that does 70 km ...
