GOAL STATEMENT

Research, design, build, and test a device which couples the AC induction electric motor to the power train of the Idaho Future Truck for driving and regenerative braking situations. The device must be greater than 90% efficient, handle loading conditions that the power train is designed for, and requires maintenance on a 30,000 mile cycle. Installation complete by mid-December 2003, with full operation and test readiness by the end of January.
