Test data is coming in now. After a few hiccups in the testing procedures, the data is clearly indicating that the PIE is taking a small percentage of load off the test vehicle’s engine.
All readings used in this test phase taken by Matco Interrogator, which is the Matco branded OTC Pegisys scan tool.
1-mile test track with 20mph speed limit and 2 stop signs: 2% engine load reduction.
Same 1-mile track with battery at 10.5 volts: 2% engine load reduction.
50/50 highway & city (light traffic) 55mph & 30mph limits respectfully: 3 % to 5% engine load reduction. Traffic variations causing engine load reduction variation
These conditions were repeated over and over with solid repeating results. So it is official, PIE 1.0 is a success, testing reveals that it works as an add on hybrid system. I think that the most amazing revelation is that the PIE exerts enough force to be recorded using a car windshield wiper motor as its prime mover.
Testing will continue as I work toward a PIE version 2.0. This next version will be much more powerful.
A new PIE 2.0 To-Do list will be published very soon.
Stay tuned, the exiting stuff has yet to happen!!!!
