Presentation Summary

  • Modern vehicles oscillate up/down as they move down the road or across terrain
  • An efficient, well packaged ability to capture energy from oscillations, provides opportunities to: Improve fuel economy, reduce emissions, extend range, control ride, handling, safety, performance
  • Levant Power will discuss development of a regenerative valve that can be actuated (active suspension), controlled (adaptive damping) and used to recover energy (regeneration)
  • Technology has been applied to transportation (shock absorbers), marine (wave energy conversion) and industrial (damping) applications
