Patent applications show Efficient Drivetrains's intellectual property,
its current capabilities and future direction.
Efficient Drivetrains has applied for 11 patents since 2009.
Efficient Drivetrains's most recent patent was filed in March 2017 for Vehicle With Ac-to-dc Inverter System For Vehicle-to-grid Power Integration.Vehicles that are capable of connecting to the AC grid are described that comprise a prime mover and at least one motor generator. In one embodiment, a vehicle may be constructed as a plug-in hybrid system and using the powertrain under controller instruction to either place power on an AC power line (to service AC grids) or to draw power from the AC power line to add electrical energy to the batteries on the vehicle. In some aspects, vehicles may test whether the power needed to service the AC power line may be satisfied by the on-vehicle batteries or, if not, whether and how much power to extract from the prime mover. In some aspects, vehicles may have a thermal management system on board to dynamically supply desired heat dissipation for the powertrain, if the powertrain is using the prime mover to supply power to the AC grid.
