Mazda using wind turbine Electric Double Layer Capacitors to improve fuel efficiency

Mazda using wind turbine Electric Double Layer Capacitors to improve fuel efficiency

Regenerative braking systems convert a vehicle's kinetic energy into electricity as the driver applies the brakes. The electricity is then stored for later use. It can be used to power the headlights, climate control, audio system, or any other electrical equipment. This reduces the need for the engine to burn extra fuel to generate electricity, thereby improving fuel economy. Mazda's i-ELOOP is a unique regenerative braking system that uses a capacitor instead of a battery to store the electricity. Capacitors can be charged and discharged extremely quickly, enabling electricity to be supplied as and when it is needed. By efficiently recovering, storing and reusing energy, i-ELOOP improves fuel economy by approximately 10 percent in real-world driving conditions. i-ELOOP's New Technologies A variable voltage alternator (12V-25V) for efficient electricity generation as the ...
