    The platform is intended to provide the electricity needed:

  • isolated chalets and holiday homes in the mountains or in the fluvial Delta
  • telecommunications equipment installed in remote areas of electricity distribution networks
  • microfarms animal and plant production
  • Supply points isolated public without the possibility of supplying the electricity network
  • Mobile EVs charging station
  • Characteristics

  • PV Generator Power: 1.74 kWp
  • Inverter Output Power: 7kW
  • 3kW Output Power Autonomy: 10 hours

  • Electric boat.

    Conventional thruster systems (hydraulic or electric) consist of a propeller driven by a motor via a shaft operate under ship’s hull. This design has hydrodynamic drawbacks. In this new technology (type: driven thruster) brushless permanent magnet motors are structurally integrated in a marine propeller. The stator of the motor is mounted in the duct while the rotor forms a ring around the propeller rim. Only the propeller blades are in the water and only electric cables pass through the hull.

    Technical characteristics of the propulsion system are:

  • D.C. permanent magnet motor, 2.5 kW / 48 V / 3500 rpm
  • Torque: 21 Nm
  • Electronic converter
  • 8 x Li-Ion Winston (WB-LYP90AHA)


  • Bike sharing station.

    In the frame of this project, we carried out an innovative solution for the in wheel synchronous permanent rare earth magnets motor. Mounten in-wheel of electric scooters and bikes. The development of the project finalized with the bike sharing station. Developed for University POLITEHNICA of Bucuresti campus, the bike sharing station had great succes among students.


    Light Electric Vehicle LEV-1.

    This first prototype is a light electric vehicle (LEV-1) designed to be a successful product, as a safe, affordable, environmental friendly effective mode of transportation. The Romanian LEV-1 is a four-wheeled platform, with a 25km/h top speed, equipped with a DC propulsion system, offering to the manufacturer the possibility of building several variants of electric cars. The LEV-1 has high efficiency, low weight, high safety and reliability, appealing design and affordable price/performance ratio, that's why it may be one of the first solution for an electric car successfully manufactured in Romania.

    Technical characteristics of the propulsion system are:

  • DC permanent magnet motor with a continuous power P=5 kW and maximum speed, n=2000 rpm
  • Supply voltage: 120 V DC (10 VRLA batteries 12V/55Ah each
  • Electronic converter

    LEV-1 performances:

  • Top speed: 25-30 km/h
  • Load: 2 persons and max. 100 kg luggage ,/
  • Autonomy: 2 hours at top speed.

  • Electric Minibus.

    As car numbers continue to rise, the pressure on urban space and the deterioration of the local air quality become more and more a problem, which the cities are faced with. Another project is : “Electric Bus for Passengers “, designed as a modern transport service developed especially for delimited spaces, such as fairs and exhibitions. The project started with ROMEXPO - Romanian biggest exhibition organizer as partner, beneficiar and co-financial agent, interested in developing an ecologic alternative for transport passengers inside fairs campus.

    Technical characteristics of the propulsion system are:

  • D.C. permanent magnet motor, 15 kW / 2000 rpm
  • Supply voltage: 168 V DC (14 lead acid VRLA batteries, 12V/120 Ah each)
  • Electronic converter
  • Regenerative breaking
  • Bus performances:

  • Top speed: 25-30 km/h
  • Load: 12 persons and max. 1000 kg luggage
  • Autonomy: 60km / 2 hours at top speed.

  • DACIA SOLENZA medium class Electric Car.

    Car Sharing is a new concept for urban transport in Eastern Europe and Romania is the first country that is going to integrate it. Integration of electric cars in the car sharing system might be a real solution to convince individual users of the advantages of electric cars. They can drive and utilize the car without being the owner, and so they can see the advantages of driving a silent car, that offers practically the same opportunities as a combustion car for urban transport, is easy to drive and cheap to feed. Car Sharing is a specific car-rental system giving access at any time, at decentralized stations. The access is controlled by modern electronic systems. Car Sharing is also a pay-as-you-drive system, encouraging people to think more carefully about their choice of modes and alternatives..

    Technical characteristics of the propulsion system are:

  • DC rare earth permanent magnet motor: 10 kW continuous power @ 2000 rpm
  • PWM-controlled IGBT transistors Electronic Drive
  • Supply voltage: 180V DC (15 batteries VRLA 12V/66Ah each)
  • LEV-1 performances:

  • Top speed: 60 km/h (150kg load)
  • Autonomy: 80km / 2 hours at top speed.

  • Electric Scooter.

    Two-wheel vehicles have always been a practical transportation solution for individuals in urban agglomerations, where the average speed of travel for a vehicle with 4 wheels often fall under the walking speed due to the number of cars and transport infrastructure. When this mobility is combined with a special propulsion system the result is a clean vehicle that contribute substantially to solving two of the most distressing problems of the inhabitants of cities and local government: transportation and environmental protection. Motorcycles and electric scooters enjoy growing popularity, due mainly to continued growth in oil prices. Battery technology made significant progress, making this mode of transport ever more interesting for potential users..

    Batteries are located in the space under the scooter saddle and are covered by the shroud; special support and attached elements permit easy removal and replacement.

    The batteries have the following characteristics:

  • Type of batteries: VRLA lead-acid batteries or, depending on price, Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries
  • Total voltage: 48 VDC
  • Capacity: 24 Ah
  • Maximum continuous operation current 50A
  • Sealed, maintenance-free batteries can operate in any position

    The brushless DC permanent magnet electric motor was chosen because of its superior characteristics vs. brushed DC motors regarding reliability, gauges, thermal characteristics. The engine has a rated power of 1.3 kW at a speed of 5000 rpm.

    The electronic drive system that controls the motor has the following main features:
  • Control circuit type: PWM, analog, controlled by resistive position transducer
  • Power circuit type: switching, 3 phase, equipped with V-MOS power transistors
  • Automatically limiting the load current
  • Load short-circuit protection
  • Overheat protection of power transistors

    The electronic battery charger ensure full and proper recharging of the batteries in a reasonable amount of time (typically 10h)

  • Supply voltage: 220 V AC single phase 50Hz
  • Thyristor type rectifier circuit with load current measurement and control
  • Maximum current: 3A cc
  • Automatic limitation of the maximum load voltage
