Wrightspeed Launches New Turbine Range Extender for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Electric Powertrain

Wrightspeed has launched a turbine generator called the Fulcrum to be used as part of the company's range-extended system for electric vehicles. The Fulcrum will not provide direct propulsion to the drive wheels like parallel hybrid architectures; rather, it will be used to recharge the battery system whenever required. The company claims the 80-kW generator to be 30% more efficient than present-day turbine generators with triple useable power, attributable to its two-stage compression process and unique recuperation design. The generator weighs nearly 250 lb - around one-10th of weight of its piston generator counterparts and is expected to have a 10,000-hour lifetime.
