Tried my link and it didn't work. I couldn't see the entire url with my search so try this one instead.N952JL wrote:Phil,Ingineer wrote:It may be possible to "hang" the unit off the back if careful design was done, but the Leaf's rear suspension would probably not like it without some tweaking. So for our initial prototype, it will be a compact trailer.
have you every seen the paper on "Simulation of a Two-Stroke Free-Piston Engine for Electrical Power Generation". This might be smaller, lighter and more fuel eff than the C30.
see (https://inplortal.inl.gov/free%252520pi ... device.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)
A small generator to extend the range of the leaf for the few long range trips I make would be perfect. I could also use it as a stand by generator for the house when the power goes out.
My current 10kW PV system is gride tie and cannot be used for emergcy power.
Keep up the good work. I love your discussions on EVSEs. And when I receive my leaf I might (I only lease mine) be sending in my EVSE for the 120/240 upgrade. I've installed a PowerExpress from SPX with a 40amp breaker and 8 gage wire. That will be more than enough for the current leaf. Even if we go to 6.6kWh charger.
I wish there was a way to attach pictures but I have found that yet.
Tried sending this as a private message but couldn't.
