Below short information on the Electric Power Solutions:


In regard to the Wake boat, here are my comments;:

· To keep the cost down and the margins up (compared to the competition), I would recommend a twin PP135 setup on a single out-drive, this would give you a peak power of 362 HP and a continuous power of 190 HP, which should be sufficient to keep you at water ski speed. As I told you earlier, we can go a lot higher power (536 HP) or more, with a similar configuration, but the cost would almost double.

· As far as batteries, the best option space/weight would be 153.6 kWh at a weight of 1344 Kilos, this would be two 77 kWh packs in parallel giving you redundancy if one pack fails. The second best option in the weight range that you specified would be 115,2 kWh for a weight of 1152 kilos, single pack.

As far as the range, assuming that we will use 80% of the energy of the batteries, the big pack would give you approximately four hours of continuous wake speed,
and approximately two to three hours at wake board speed.

Our recharging time is astounding 30-40 min to full power and this stands out true the world market needs today.


You have to understand that I suspect these numbers to be conservative, but we are shooting in the dark until we have a drag curve for the vessel.

Maybe you can contact the motor manufacturer and ask him to provide you with the equivalent HP that their motor would produce at 1500 rpm and 2200 rpm using the configuration of your vessel.
As far as shore charging, if we want high speed charging, (less than one hour) and shore facilities are not large enough,

I would recommend a small and very efficient variable speed DC diesel generator, this would be producing electricity at approximately 200 grams per kilowatt.

Getting 120 kW of power would be easy and very cost efficient.

As far as the vessel DC loads (sound system), we would power that directly from the HV battery bank through a DC/DC converter, lots of noise for a long, long time.
Since time to demonstration is of the essence, I would recommend the above configuration, I could get all of this organized in 2 to 3 months.

Once we do the in-the-water trials, we will have very precise drag data, and we should be able to optimize.
