The testing phase of the project, which was carried out in Kocaeli by Devinsel Technology General Manager Ersin Arslan and his five engineer friends, resulted in fuel savings of up to 30 percent in vehicles. The project, which aims to restore the lost energy due to brake, is supported by the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology.
The team, which carries out projects such as hydrogen energy cars, solar powered cars and boats, plans to produce this fuel-saving project within a year. In the technology that can be used in vehicles with both electric and internal combustion engines, the saving rate will vary depending on many factors such as vehicle weight, volume, number of stops.
The first target of the system, which was first implemented on the minibus and which has 3 trial production, was to fill the city and to reduce the high fuel costs in public transport such as half bus. The system, which can then be applied to all other vehicle types, consists of a part mounted near a motor assembly and a second module that can be placed anywhere on the vehicle. The average weight of the system is 15 kilograms, although it can be changed from vehicle to vehicle.
This system, which can pay off itself in 3 months, is expected to have a life span of about 10 years. The advantages of the system to the environment and its users in the long term include the reduction of air pollution with less CO2 emissions, increased brake life due to less braking, increasing engine life with reduced engine load.
