EV Centers of America EV Centers of America

EV Centers of America (“EVCA”) is network of advanced vehicle technology centers or hubs of multiple functions, located at major regions in California.

The objectives of the EV Centers are:

1. Promote clean and sustainable transportation to private and government fleet owners, transit agencies, consumers and community at large

2. Serve as a neutral site for OEM companies to collaborate on advanced vehicle technology research and field testing.

3. To train a new generation of skilled technicians on electric vehicle technologies.

4. To provide repair and maintenance services support to alternative fuels and electric vehicle technologies.

4. To build an electric vehicle fast charging stations infrastructure along the corridor of freeways connecting major cities.

Advanced Vehicle Technology Academy:

Advanced Vehicle Technology Academy Advanced Vehicle Technology Academy

The mission of the Advanced Vehicle Technology Academy is to inspire, to empower and to equip students to succeed in schools by utilizing their full potential for their benefits and for the benefits of society at large. AVTA inspires high school students to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics via the hands-on workshop on building an electric car.

LITHIUM AIR BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

Our research team lead by our director Lloyd L. Tran is currently developing Lithium Air Technology that can potentially provides 10 times more energy density than the lithium ion battery technologies. The newly developed Lithium Air Technology will be used to power an AMPTRAN electric car that will go for 400-500 miles between charges. The Lithium Air Battery technology developed by Lloyd Tran is based on proprietary Nanocomposite Technologies.

WIRELESS CHARGING SYSTEM for ELECTRIC VEHICLES:

Electric vehicle charging technology can be divided into two methods: conductive way using an electrical wire and wireless charging. Up to the present time, conductive charging technologies have complex issues related to a physical wire plugging to an electric outlet, charging time frame and safety concern.

Our research team has developed a wireless fast charging system that is capable of charging an electric vehicle while it is stationery or it is moving.  The CTI wireless charging system is safe, fast, and with expected efficiency exceeding 90%

The wireless charging system will replace the conductive way, in a similar manner that the wireless telephone communication has drastically replaced the copper wire network that was in existence over the past century.

BUILDING A DC FAST CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE IN CALIFORNIA

EV Centers of America is building a network of DC fast chargers, enabling electric vehicle to travel an extended distance from Sacramento to San Diego, a journey of more than 500 miles connecting many major cities from Northern to Southern California.

EV charging with solar canopy

The fast chargers are 480 V DC enables all electric vehicles that equipped with a high current on board chargers to get as much as 20 kW-h electrical energy over 30 minutes, or 80% of its maximum energy storage or about 70 miles of travel. The fast charging infrastructure along the freeway corridors remove the key barrier of range limitation for the deployment of electric vehicles.
