Elways solution

Following carefully conducted pre-studies, Elways has chosen to develop conductive feeding from the road.

The picture above shows how the electric power is fed from the electric grid trough transforming in two steps to low voltage via a fast switch and further via a movable arm to the battery charger of the vehicle and finally reach the electric motor either directly or through the battery.

Above is shown how the different sections are connected to the low voltage cable that is buried along the road. A parallel high voltage cable is necessary in order not to have to frequent in feeds from the electric grid. Many roads are located in sparsely populated areas where the distance between in feeds will be tens of kilometers.


Above is shown a cross section of the road with a rail in each half and cables buried outside the roadway.
