QUANT e-Sportlimousine with drive

Thanks to its nanoFLOWCELL®, a further development of flow technology, nanoFLOWCELL AG will it possible for the first time in to power an automobile with cell battery systems. especially compact and powerful cell battery delivers a range of up to 600 km in the QUANT e-Sportlimousine

The novel system developed by AG is the product of intense further of the flow cell principle, it to new levels of power density, far than those of conventional flow-cells. Great advantages in the and release of electrical charge from its more than greater power density. The Technical Officer of nanoFLOWCELL AG, La Vecchia, is convinced, that the to electric automobiles can happen in the future; much faster experts have predicted far.

What is a flow

Redox flow batteries patented in 1976 for NASA and the space programme as part of a to advance energy storage for space flight. The 1976 have long since and are used by many others The flow-cell battery is a beacon of because it is an especially simple and storage medium for electrical Flow cell installations are in use as storage systems for domestic and wind power plants.

help capture the energy it is generated and save it for use when it is

Flow cells or flow are a very modern form of storage device. Flow are chemical batteries, combining of an electrochemical accumulator cell those of a fuel cell. In the cell, a cold burning place, during which and reduction processes happen in The electrolytic fluids in flow usually metallic salts in solution are pumped from through the cell. This a kind of battery cell a cross-flow of electrolyte liquid.

One of this system in general is the larger the storage tanks for the fluid are, the greater the capacity. Simultaneously, the concentration of an solution determines the quantity of that it transports. The nanoFLOWCELL® with its very high density is opening new horizons in area.

The energy transfer a flow cell is roughly the as that in a good old-fashioned car battery: charge passes metal plates acting as and negatively charged poles via an liquid. One disadvantage of lead-acid is that at 30 Wh/kg, they are weak charge carriers; batteries of a useful capacity are by rather heavy. Furthermore, due to the memory effect , they lose charging capacity 500 charging cycles. State-of-the-art batteries have a 4-times charging capacity at 120 Wh/kg and it for roughly 1.000 charging and can be considered an acceptable temporary

Today s flow cells have around the same but are much more durable; do not suffer from the memory

What is the nanoFLOWCELL®?

The nanoFLOWCELL® is an powerful and compact flow battery. Its excellent scalability, construction, and easy operation it decisive advantages for use in the construction of automobiles.

To charge or discharge the two different electrolytic solutions are through the appropriate battery in which an electrode (anode or is located. A membrane that is it bit very sturdy household film separates the two electrolyte and their differing chemistries. No occurs between the high-charge ion and the low-charge one; this be useless for producing electrical

Advantages of the nanoFLOWCELL®

The very product moving the world attractive electric mobility, the was conceived and is being developed at the lab of the nanoFLOWCELL AG, the nanoFLOWCELL DigiLab in Switzerland. The results are very At a nominal voltage of 600 V and 50 A nominal the system is achieving an impressive output of 30 kW.

In terms of energy capacity and density, the nanoFLOWCELL® can store 20 times more than the conventional lead-acid This means driving further with the stored in a battery of the same weight. It has a greater capacity (and potential driving range) current lithium-ion technology, which many current cars are powered.

For some one litre of petrol contains Wh, or 400 times as much energy as a battery.

The reason that the performs so well lies in the of its newly-developed electrolytic fluids, up of exacting combinations of specific salts at very high The charge-carriers within the carrier have been taken to a new of charge density through the use of nano-mechanisms and therefore carry energy than anything seen. A welcome side is that the charging flow the cell is almost entirely

The internal efficiency of the nanoFLOWCELL® is than 80%.

The current density of 600 Wh/l is already an five to six times greater lithium-ion batteries. In addition, cells can go through 10,000 cycles with no noticeable effect and suffer almost no All of this predestines this for a great part in the development of mobility concepts.

Another advantage comes the simple scalability of the nanoFLOWCELL® tanks. The first QUANT prototype carries two 200-litre on board. Its energy load is 200 times 600 Wh/l: 120 kWh in total. The e-Sportlimousine uses its energy frugally, consuming about 20 km.

Just like conventional an electric car s range depends on its storage capacity and its consumption. In the of the QUANT e-Sportlimousine, the average is 600 kilometres.

The consumption figure of 20 kWh/100 km is a standard value, driving in the lower load using the consumption cycles as for all vehicles. Further improvements are Increasing the tank volume of the e-Sportlimousine to 800 litres would be simple.

It is much easier for to integrate more tank into modern vehicle than it is to add or expand heavy systems with complex connections, conduits, and separate harnesses for the precise monitoring of all battery cells.

The QUANT powertrain

Four electric units make up the QUANT s propulsion concept. Alongside the there is the nanoFLOWCELL®, which sends electrical energy to the storage unit. This storage unit is made up of two high-performance capacitors, built to the of current supercap capacitors. capacitors are lossless electrical storage devices that can energy very rapidly; an criterion for a sports car s driving

In addition, there is a state-of-the-art VCU (vehicle control unit) for controlling the driving- and charging-currents the entire powertrain.

State-of-the-art are the storage units that power to the four drive when the driver pushes the gas pedal . The supercaps are also a energy buffer for the vehicle s system. During braking or downhill, the drive motors is reversed, turning them generators that also electricity to be stored in the supercaps and when needed.

Refuelling is

The nanoFLOWCELL® functions as a tireless of energy for the central storage as long as sufficient electrolytic is present in the tanks. Once the is used up, the contents of both must to be replaced. This is no more complicated than up a conventionally powered vehicle

The prototype features a double system with dual necks, one for each electrolyte, to times for the electrolyte liquid to a minimum.

The major difference all other electrical energy systems is the range that a nanoFLOWCELL® tank offers: A tank volume of 200 to 400 litres can a 600 km radius of action, a distance to today s combustion-engine-powered vehicles.

Extremely Environmentally Friendly

The generally utilises components are not only harmless, but which are easily available in large Precious metals and rare are not used in the system. The principal of the cell are the water in the carrier metal salts, and crystalline that have been in environmentally friendly processes and can be disposed of with no environmental

The current state of knowledge that the nanoFLOWCELL® will no environmental complications during or disposal. The current state of indicates that the system also perform well an extended service life: The can undergo 100-times more cycles than conventional systems (lead-acid ca. 500, ca.

1.000). Flow cells do not from the memory effect and self-discharge is minimal when not in use than 1%/day).

A Quantum in Development

Process-Engineers call the activity within the cell burning , though the internal temperatures can range from 60° to Celsius depending on output. low operating temperature range contributes to the system s excellent efficiency of more than No exhaust heat means no Most impressive is the incredible of the energy conversion within the apart from the electrolyte there are no moving parts at

To achieve this degree of across the whole system, at nanoFLOWCELL AG have had to create and innovative paths, some of right down to the quantum level. The nucleus of this was born in the nanoFLOWCELL AG simulation the nanoFLOWCELL DigiLab in Zurich.

of simulation, tuning, and testing of models at the DigiLab laboratory for research and development in Zurich into finding and mastering the key of quantum chemistry for charge before the necessary components be synthesised for the laboratory and real-world Creating an electrolyte based on the engineers wish list the usual order of things in and research on its head.

The researchers and involved even speak of a leap in this regard. point out that physical and limits for comparable systems deemed absolute have been broken thanks to the of the nanostructures developed for the electrolytic carriers. The mastermind at nanoFLOWCELL AG, La Vecchia, speaks of, the systematic of an extremely ionically charged which is the breakthrough to new, liquid charge-carriers. It is as though we had the explosive power of dynamite as a stored it in an electrolyte, and made it in accurate dosages.

Nunzio La underscores, The physical and chemical in this area, expressed as the limits within the Nernst have been pushed so far by our research and development work we have even surprised The new quality level of the working within the nanoFLOWCELL® represents a step down the path to electrical mobility.

The Nernst equation describes the governing the transport of electrical in liquids and also represents a for any scientist working on electrical transfer in a chemical cell. La Vecchia is certain: Our system of simulation has allowed us to break the mass-effect bonds of quantum This brings a future of mobility much closer to

Elegant, sporty and with an design that underscores the character of this car as the platform for a new powertrain technology this is the e-Sportlimousine in its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.

Its character was reflected in its unusual right from the start. A model was built in cooperation a Swedish auto manufacturer in and presented at the Geneva Motor as the NLV Quant. This also as the basis for the NLV Quant concept car was presented in Geneva in 2010.

New and complete redesign

Following the Geneva Motor Show, it was to pursue a completely new concept, optically and technically. Every of the QUANT e-Sportlimousine has been from the ground up over the four years: new powertrain, redesign, and most importantly, aspect of the new prototypes are designed homologation requirements in mind. The new e-Sportlimousine is neither a show nor a concept car, it is the first equipped with nanoFLOWCELL®.

The exterior of the new QUANT e-Sportlimousine

The sensual design of the exterior you over with its long, lines. The roof line from the windscreen almost the length of the car to the wing-like, sculptured end. The goal was to give the car as feeling of motion as possible to the nanoFLOWCELL® at the heart of the QUANT as well to underscore the sporty, expression of what an e-sports-car be.
