Abstract
Ellipsah LLC proposes a Phase I research program that will study the feasibility, benefits, performance and costs of an energy regenerative suspension system. The anticipated energy surplus, under various operating conditions, will be determined. Ellipsah's research will focus on innovative linear motor design concepts, which when implemented will increase the regenerative energy and reduce the system cost, so that commercialization will become economically feasible. The innovative low cost linear motor and integral electronic controller, replace the shock absorber in vehicle suspension systems, improving ride performance and providing energy generation while being easily installed into existing vehicles. Ellipsah is uniquely qualified to perform this research, having experience in all the technologies required to analyze, design and prototype an energy regenerative suspension system. Ellipsah is expert in control systems analysis, electromagnetic finite element analysis, motor design, actuator design, and motor controller design. These claims are substantiated in the proposal's past experience section.
