Turan Sahinkaya Partners on Patent for Optimal Control System On Electric Motor Driven Vehicle

Turan Sahinkaya’s commitment to help make the world a better place has expanded into partnering on a patent for an optimal control system for electric motor driven vehicles.

 
PRLog - Sep. 11, 2009 - COLLEYVILLE, Texas -- Palo Alto, California -- Turan Sahinkaya has worked with his father, Dr. Yilmaz Sahinkaya, on gaining a U.S. patent acceptance for the Optimal Control System for an Electric Motor Driven Vehicle. This idea is currently being widely discussed among the Top Five vehicle producing manufacturers in the world.  

According to Turan Sahinkaya, “Operating conditions experienced by a battery-operated vehicle driven by one or more permanent magnet or separately excited DC motors are sensed and converted into a control signal.

“The control signal is applied to a pulse width modulator which controls the conduction periods of SCR's in such a way that the average motor armature voltage is proportional to the control signal. In a motoring mode the pulse width modulator operates SCR's to supply current from the battery to the motor armature circuit,” adds Turan Sahinkaya.

“In a generating mode the pulse width modulator operates SCR's to supply current from the motor armature circuit to the battery. This occurs when the vehicle is moving downhill or is decelerating on a level terrain. The required mode of operation is accomplished automatically by the action of a motor armature current direction sensing circuit,” concludes Turan Sahinkaya.

Turan Sahinkaya’s father, Dr. Yilmaz Sahinkaya, earned a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Dr. Sahinkaya earned his Doctorate degree from the world-renowned Caltech University in Pasadena, California.

Turan Sahinkaya is a graduate of University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics, where he proudly represented his University playing 3 years Varsity soccer and 1 year of Varsity Rugby. He was part of the championship rugby team that won the NCAA, defeating Army. Turan Sahinkaya went on to earn a Master of Business Administration from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
