How do I efficiently design an electrical system for an electrical motor run by saltwater fuel cells? Answered
I am designing, building and testing an electrical system that runs off of saltwater and powers a buggy-like vehicle. My dilemma, is figuring out how to regulate the unsteady output of electrical energy into the electrical motor. I'm trying to figure out the most efficient type of electrical motor to use, only knowing I need 5 hp. How can I take the inconstant energy flow from the many energy cells, regulate a constant flow into the electric motor, and charge a separate battery with the excess energy, to be used in case of "emergency"?
