I think I read it say that it works on a 48v system, so not quite hybrid/EV territory at 200v+. I'm curious how they intend to regeneratively charge this battery without being an EV or hybrid. So maybe it will be
Interesting point, as that wouldn't require any major changes. Do you think the fin design of the compressor would be efficient enough in reverse flow? To me, the way the fins angle would cause nothing but turbulence and there would have to be a pretty major restriction for something like air to overcome the magnets. Obviously not an electromagnet expert, but thats what comes to mind.
I have no clue, but I do know that when you use a motor as a generator you can vary the physical resistance by limiting the amount of power you put into the batteries. A good motor controller should be able to vary resistance from freewheel all the way to extremely difficult to spin.
