There are a number of systems improvements that we plan to undertake for next season in the area of high-pressure hydrogen storage tanks, ultra-capacitors in place of batteries and electro-mechanical layout. Since we are now able to supply substantial amounts of power from 12 volts D.C. through to 240 volts 3 phase AC we are evaluating such applications as forced air heating, a heat pump system and a portable emergency water and power module for disaster applications.
This season’s efforts have led to the testing of a 10HP electric outboard for small craft. The motor was designed by a University of Victoria Mechatronics course team of students and was built by A.G.O. to their specifications. It was later modified by A.G.O. for the final tests. See the test in the Gas to Electric 10 HP Honda video online.
