Title (EN) AN OFF-BOARD STATION AND AN ELECTRICITY EXCHANGING SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR USE WITH A MOBILE VEHICLE POWER SYSTEM
(FR) STATION A DISTANCE ET SYSTEME ECHANGEUR D'ELECTRICITE UTILISE AVEC UN SYSTEME D'ALIMENTATION D'UN VEHICULE MOBILE
Abstract:
(EN) A mobile vehicle power supply system and an electricity exchanging system enhance the economic viability of different modes of transportation that incorporate generators, such as electric motors and fuel cells, to generate electricity. The power supply system provides for the off-board use of the electric power generated by the generator of a mobile vehicle, such as an electric car. Off-board use, or use remote from the vehicle, of the electrical power includes the delivery of power to a remote site. Off-board stations are provided for delivery of fuel to the vehicle and/or for receiving the electrical power generated by the fuel cell. The off-board station and the vehicle are appropriately equipped for quick and easy interconnection such that electrical power can be exchanged between the vehicle and off-board station and the electricity exchanging system. The electricity exchanging system is configured for installation at numerous locations for allowing a mobile vehicle operator to purchase or sell electricity. The operator employs a user authorization element to assist the recording or tracking of electricity exchanged between the vehicle and the electricity exchanging system.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'alimentation d'un véhicule mobile et un système échangeur d'électricité améliorant la viabilité économique de différents modes de transport incorporant des générateurs, tels que des moteurs électriques et des piles à combustible, permettant de générer de l'électricité. Le système d'alimentation permet d'utiliser à distance l'électricité générée par le générateur d'un véhicule mobile tel qu'une voiture électrique. L'utilisation à distance de l'électricité consiste à administrer l'électricité à un site distant. Les stations à distance servent à administrer du combustible au véhicule et/ou à recevoir l'électricité générée par la pile à combustible. La station à distance et le véhicule sont équipés pour une interconnexion rapide et aisée de manière que l'électricité puisse être échangée entre le véhicule et la station à distance et le système échangeur d'électricité. Ce système est configuré pour être installé en de nombreux points pour permettre à un conducteur de véhicule mobile d'acheter ou vendre de l'électricité. Le conducteur utilise un élément d'autorisation utilisateur pour enregistrer ou assurer le suivi de l'électricité échangée entre le véhicule et le système échangeur d'électricité.
