Jaguar’s Gas Turbine Electric Project wins funding

Jets high efficiency gas turbine engine

The UK government-backed Strategy Board recently the recipients of carbon reduction research project funding sees a consortium made up of Land Rover, SR Drives and led by Jets taking a GBP 1,103,392 US$1,790,000) slice of the multi-million cake to develop the world’s commercially viable — and friendly — gas turbine designed specifically for automotive

The consortium’s project is amongst 16 applicants to receive the funding for of concept and six for research and development the aim being to develop an ultra-lightweight, gas powered, electric vehicle extender that will vehicle weight savings of or more and a modest reduction in CO2 on the UNECE101 drive cycle. substantial CO2 savings can be achieved in world use. The small multi-fuel capability and potential low of the Ultra Lightweight Range (ULRE) could also speed adoption of electric

Since 2007, the Technology Board has invested £74 million US$120 million) in over 50 low projects and John Laughlin, the Low Carbon Vehicles programme said of the latest investment: We are innovative projects in a number of key which include internal engine technologies, energy and management, lightweight structures and new technologies. The work will to accelerate the reduction of carbon and deliver mass-market low carbon vehicles within 5 to 15 years.

of the big car manufacturers have been into implementing gas turbines in engines since the 1950s and invested millions of dollars in projects but these early were thwarted by the dual of turbine lag (the 1 to 2 second from ‘stepping on the gas’ to the car and poor fuel efficiency at low and idle.

As a result, the gas turbine engine has numerous concept pieces but really made it out of the testing which, given that the is independent of vulnerable petroleum production (being able to run on a of fuels,including natural gas and bio-fuels), is short of frustrating. Perhaps it was waiting for the day when technology overcome its numerous niggling

The consortium led by Bladon Jets that its research into the use of gas technology in electric and hybrid (which offer both torque at low revs and improved could realize that The project will use Bladon’s axial flow gas turbine coupled to a high speed utilising SR Drives’ proprietary reluctance technology to extend the of electrically-powered vehicles. Jaguar Rover. will use its many of automotive experience (including the odd into the world of gas turbine as you can see in the gallery) to oversee the vehicle aspect of the consortium’s ULRE.

Bladon’s manufacturing process its highly efficient turbines from a size and weight too, as well as requiring no cooling system, oil or catalytic — which should in cleaner combustion and fast up times. When blended the high efficiency, robustness, high temperature capability and over wide speed of the SR Drives Group technology, the hopes that its innovation help to play a major in the renaissance of the British automotive
