BACKGROUND

[0003] Alternate powered vehicle are increasingly coming in demand these days. This is due to the depletion of our natural fuel and the ever increasing prices of the same. This depletion of our natural fuel led to the evolution of our vehicles from purely fuel based to hybrid ones. Hybrid vehicles utilize both fuel and electric energy for their functioning.

[0004] However, the main concern still was not eliminated, that is for functioning of the vehicle still natural fuel was required. Also, the efficiency of these cars has also been an issue.

[0005] To overcome the usage of fuel in hybrid cars, fully electric cars were developed. These cars run completely on electrical energy. However, the amount of travelling possible with these cars is lesser than fuel cars and need to be charged in short spans in order to be used. [0006] Another solution to the fuel problem is solar powered vehicle. These vehicles harness and use solar power in order to functioning of the vehicle. However, major problem with such vehicles is that solar power is slow to be harnessed and also whether plays an important role.

[0007] Therefore, in order to overcome the above mentioned shortcomings, there is a need for a ready solution that can take effect immediately.

[0014] FIG. 2 illustrates a motor vehicle according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0015] FIG. 3 illustrates a method according to another embodiment of the present disclosure.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0016] The following description and drawings are illustrative and are not to be construed as limiting. Numerous specific details are described to provide a thorough understanding. However, in certain instances, well known or conventional details are not described in order to avoid obscuring the description. References to one or an embodiment in the present disclosure are not necessarily references to the same embodiment; and, such references mean at least one.

[0017] Reference in this specification to "one embodiment" or "an embodiment" means that a particular feature, structure, or characteristic described in connection with the embodiment is included in at least one embodiment of the disclosure. The appearances of the phrase "in one embodiment" in various places in the specification are not necessarily all referring to the same embodiment, nor are separate or alternative embodiments mutually exclusive of other embodiments. Moreover, various features are described which may be exhibited by some embodiments and not by others. Similarly, various requirements are described which may be requirements for some embodiments but not other embodiments.

[0018] Referring to FIG. 1 that illustrates an electrical system 100 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. In an embodiment of the present disclosure the electrical system 100 may be a part of an engine or driving means of an electrical vehicle. The electrical system 100 includes an electric motor 102. The electric motor 102 provides mobility to the vehicle on which the electrical system 100 is mounted. The electric motor further includes a fan 108. Fan 108 is connected through a belt 110 to a power generation module 112. The power generation module is an alternator in the vehicle. The vehicle can be, without limitation, a car, a plane, a motorcycle, a boat, a lawn mower, or construction machinery.

[0019] The power generation module 112 is further connected to a first power storage 116 and a second power storage 114 through wires 106. These wires 106 are used to recharge both power storages 114 and 116. In an embodiment, the first power storage 116 and second power storage 114 are engine batteries utilized to run the electric motor

102. The batteries are connected to the electric motor 102 through wires 104 separately to provide charge to the electric motor 102. In an embodiment, In an embodiment, the alternator is utilized recharge the batteries 114 and 116 of the vehicle while the vehicle is in motion.

[0020] Now referring to FIG. 2 that illustrates a motor vehicle 200 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. Motor vehicle 200 includes an engine 204 that further includes a belt 204 connected to an alternator 206. Alternator 206 alternatively recharges the batteries connected to it.

[0021] Now referring to FIG. 3 that illustrates a method 300 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. References will be made to FIG. 1 for description of FIG. 3.

[0022] The method 300 initiates at step 302. At 302, power is drawn for initial movement of the vehicle. This initiation can be effected by using a microprocessor or any like equipment. The microprocessor can thus further, at step 304 determine that whether the first power storage 116 has enough power for the initial mobility. If there is enough power for mobility initiation, charge is drawn from the first power storage 116 and at step 306, the vehicle movement is initiated. However, if there is not enough charge to kick start the vehicle then the method jumps to step 314 that will be described later on in the description.

[0023] Still referring to FIG.3, at step 308, the microprocessor makes a determination of whether the second power storage 114 requires recharging. If recharging is required, then the alternator 112 starts recharging the second power storage 114 at step 310, while the vehicle is drawing charge for motion from the first power storage 116. If no recharging is required, the method is stopped. Further, the microprocessor constantly keeps checking the charge status of the first power storage 116 while its charge is being utilized to power the vehicle. At step 312, a determination is made as to whether the charge of the first power storage 116 being low or not. If the charge is low and is nearing depletion, at step 314 the first power storage 116 is automatically dis- connected from the electric motor 102 whereas, automatically a connection is made between the electric motor 102 with the second power storage 114in order to derive charge for vehicle's mobility. At step 316, the first power storage 116 is connected to the alternator 112 and starts getting recharged. Steps 312 - 316 gets repeated for second power storage 114 as well. Hence in a way, the vehicle has a sustainable storage of power and does not require any other auxiliary power storage like solar panels, natural fuel etc.

[0024] While the embodiments have been described in connection with the preferred embodiments of the various figures, it is to be understood that other similar embodiments may be used or modifications and additions may be made to the described embodiment for performing the same function without deviating therefrom. Therefore, the disclosed embodiments should not be limited to any single embodiment, but rather should be construed in breadth and scope in accordance with the appended claims.
