ELECI'RIC VEHICLE/PHOTOVOLTAIC TEST AND EVALUATION PROGRAM SUMMARY The main objective of this program is to test and evaluate the performance of electric vehicles (EV's) under actual operating conditions in (i) a "commuter" type (driving back and forth to work) and, (ii) a "fleet" type (delivery, service etc.) metropolitan environment. Even though the testing and evaluation of the EV's will be the primary objective (in response to this RFP), a wealth of important information will be derived from the use of photovoltaic (PV) system(s) to charge (fuel) the commuter Ev 's during daytime periods when t hey are not in use. Even though this add -on feature of the project is not required in the RFP, it is the strong conviction of the applicants that it will contribute substantially towards the enhanced development of EV's, as well as photovoltaics, as alternate transportation vehicles and energy sources, respectively. The use of EV's in the Tampa Bay region is very important for a number of reasons. First, Florida is one of the fastest growing states in the nation. The number of cars almost ex.ceeds the population. The Tampa Bay area has almost two million residents. The use o f gasoline is the largest l ocal contributor to air pollution. Because the ozone standard has been exceeded, Tampa Bay is classified as non-attainment for ozone by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The use of EV's and other non poll u ting transportation vehicles will greatly comribute to a reduction of air pollutants. Second, in add i tion to automobiles, but to a lesser extent, power utilities contribute to air pollution (ozone, nitrogen oxide s etc ). The abundance of sunlight facilitates the use of photovoltaics which will help reduce the demand for electricity during peak hours and reduce the size of new power plants i n the future. Third, the use of EV's and photovoltaics will reduce USA's dependence on foreign oil and out-flow of US dollars (deficit). The cost of solar PV cells has declined dramatically over the past ten years and additional cost reductions are expected. Combined with the added benefits of clean air, the development of EV /PV projects is certainly very important. The Tampa Bay area, located at a latitude of about 28, presents a special challe n ge to automobiles, particularly in the summer time (from June to November), because of the intense (>90%) humidity and high temperatures. The testing of the reliability and performance of EV's in a hot, humid environment such as this is very important. As a Jous term objective of this program, one can envision large numbers of EV's driven by commuters and parked in designated spaces under sun blocking roofs covered by PV panels. By the time the EV users are ready to return to their homes, the Ev's will have been recharged by photovoltaic systems. If additional use of the EV's is needed during the evening hours, the vehicles can be recharged by energy delivered by the local utility, possibly at reduced cost. This also will provide additional cost and power distnoution benefits to the power utility from selling energy during the night hours and levelling the production of power over a twenty four hour period. I




BACKGROUND ELECTRIC VEHICLE/PHOTOVOLTAIC TEST AND EVALUATION PROGRAM The transportation sector is almost totally dependent on, and consumes almost two t h irds of, the oil used i n the United S t ates. In addition, transportation accounts for almost 30% of the air poUution.l.l The use of electric vehicles (EV's) will certainly help reduce air pollution, sound noise in an urban environment and the US dependence on foreign oi1.3.<.s Electric vehicles also offer benefits to utilities, since each EV consumes almost the same amount of electricity as a single residential customer, and a considerable amount of the energy needed by the EV'S could be provided during off-peak hours, enabling the util i ties and their customers to gain substantially without investing in new generati n g capacity..S In 1982 the US Department of Energy (DOE) initiated a cost-shared program (in collaboration with a group of active electric vehicle site operators) in order to test and evaluate improved EV's and vehicle components.6 As a result of this program, s u bstantial improvements have been made leading to better vehicle reliability. However, as more advanced EV's become available it is important to test them in actual operating field environments. A number of automobile manufacturers are presently pursuing the development of EV's for commuter as well as service types of cars and vans.'.S The electric utility industry, through its research arm, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), is also actively supporting the development of the EV technology.5 7 When expected improvements in battery technology materialize, the operating range for e l ectric cars and vans could be extended to 120 miles or greater making the use of EV's more attractive.' However, even with the present operating range of EV's (50-60 miles), there are a number of applications where these vehicles can presently be used effectively to alleviate energy and poJiution related problems. Adequate testing of these vehicles at different geographic locations (different climatic and environmental conditions) is necessary.9 10 The metropolitan area containing Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater represents a unique urban setting where the testing ofEV's could provide very valuable and visi ble (to the public) information and promote the use of EV's. Third, the Tampa Bay area has a mission to become and help lead the way to the next generation metropolis which is energy and environmentally responsible and responsive to the changing economic base of the US or the world stage. The joining of EV's and photovoltaics in this project will give rise to new options which will help reduce USA's dependence on foreign oil for transportation and thus reduce the out-flow of US dollars (deficit). The cost of solar PV cells has declined substantially over the past ten years and additional cost reductions are expected Combined with the added benefits of clean air the development of EV /PV projects is certainly very important. 1


A. PROGRAM PLAN The University of South Florida and Florida Power Corporation in collaboration with Tampa Electric Co. and the City of Tampa proposes to develop an Electric Vehicle Site Operator Program for the test and evaluation of BY's under actual operating conditions within the metropolitan area of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater, Florida. An additional (no cost to DOE) feature of this program is the use of photovoltaic systems for charging the EV's. This program is organized to carry out the following specific objectives with a longer term goal being the wide-spread use of EV's in commuter and fleet type operational settings. Objectives (Year 1) 1. Gather a minimum of six months data (during the first year) relating to the performance of BY's under actual user operating conditions for both commuter and fleet type operations 2. Determine user acceptability through questionnaires and personal interviews. 3. Determine vehicle maintenance requirements through daily logs. 4. Evaluate battery performance as a function of vehicle range and pack life. 5. Determine typical vehicle ranges for both commuter and fleet type operations. 6. Evaluate the effect of an air conditioner on vehicle range and performance. 7. Determine best role for photovoltaics in charging BY's. 8. Determine technical feasibility and economic advantages of returning extra photovoltaic power to the power grid. 9. Determine best use of "off peak" rates in charging BY's. 10. Determine what economics are needed for BY's to compete with ICY's. 11. Determine, through communication with EV manufacturers, the best, worst, and most realistic scenarios for EV large scale production and marketing. l

This program will include tesling and evaluation of two cypes of BY's: (a) Two vans, which will be located at Florida Power Corporation, will be tested in a "fleet" cype environinent with an assigned schedule of regular service and/or deliveries. (b) Three electric cars to be purchased with funds received from DOE, with cost sharing from Florida Power the City of Tampa and the University of South Florida. These cars will be similar to those developed by Soleq Corp. Two of these EV's will be located at USF (to be operated by USF researchers) and one EV will be located in downtown Tampa (to be operated by the city of Tampa). These EV's will be tested in a "commuter" type driving environment, to determine reliability, range, best charging scheme for most likely vehicle uses, maintenance requirements of vehicle components, economics needed for EV's to compete with ICV's, and realistic scenarios by which utilities and manufacturers can help with the development of EV's. The location of the electric cars and the vans may vary to allow all participants to properly evaluate each vehicle. The map in figure 1 shows the approximate locations where EV's will be located. The artist's drawing of EV /PV arrangement presents the general idea of the concept. A unique feature of this program is the use of photovoltaies to charge the EV's, used for commuting, during daylight hours when the cars are not in use. The PV systems will be purchased and applied to the project at no cost to DOE. A very small portion of DOE funds will be used for the evaluation of the EV /PY system(s) interactive performance. As part of this program, an e

Societal Impacts Electric car operation will have significant positive impacts to society, including savings in energy consumption, reductions in emissions of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter, and reductions in noise levels. The economics of the electric car, based on the factors discussed above, will be compared with those of an internal combustion vehicle. Data on iniernal combustion vehicles will be obtained from a variety of sources, such as Department of Transponation for vehicle operating and maintenance costs and fuel consumption, and emissions data from the Environmental Protection Agency. This comparison will illustrate the resultant net economic benefits of the electric car program. Additionally, it may also identify areas in which modifications in the technology and/or its application could produce greater economic returns. A!. part of this program, an evaluation of the human factors issues relating to the integration of electric vehicles into our society will be made. The successful accomplishment of significant changes in methods of transponation involving the introduction of alternative means of transponation requires a careful consideration of human factors or ergonomic aspects of the situation. In order to achieve a reasonable level of acceptance, any proposal for change must clearly have talcen into consideration cenain minimum requirements within the general area of human factors Operator and Passenger Comfort Ride characteristics must be acceptably comfonable; seating accommodations must be adequate and appropriate for the specific use envisioned. The range of control of temperature and humidity must be adequate to the geographic region and range of seasonal changes that will be encountered. Noise levels within the vehicle must be acceptable. It is anticipated that in electric vehicles the noise level will be significantly lower than those encountered in internal combustion vehicles. Relallve Ease of Operallon The requirements imposed on the driver for operation of the vehicle should be reasonable and similar to skills already mastered for the operation of more conventional vehicles. It is probable that this will pose no problem and that operation will be simpler than the operation of internal combustion vehicles. Starting. steering, speed control, braking, shutting down and securing the vehicle should be as nearly like those operations in more conventional vehicles as possible. Vehicle Performance The operators of electric cars will accept a lesser level of performance than that they have become accustomed to in the operation of internal combustion engines if acceleration and maximum speed are sufficient for them to maneuver safely and without becoming obstacles to normal traffic in urban transponation patterns. The handling of the vehicles, primarily involving the ease of steering, must be satisfactory. Maximum range of the vehicles without recharging 6


batteries must be adequate to fulfill the operator's requirements over a reasonable number of hours in the working day. Questions have been raised as to variations in the performance characteristics of electric vehicles as the battery bank is discharged. This issue will be investigated Vehicles should not be used for missions that will require distances greater than those that can be accommodated without significant falloff in performance. Vehicle Maintenance Routine maintenance requirements must be simplified and automated to the maximum possible extent consistent with reasonable economy of design. The specific actions necessary for recharging the battery banks, watering the batteries and general maintenance should not be a source of difficulty or ma jor inconvenience for the operator. Requirements for lubrication and periodic inspection should be clearly specified. The long term objectives of this program are the development of electric vehicles as a viable alternative to internal combustion vehicles and the use of photovoltaics as a primary method for charging EV's used in a commuter type environment. The participation in this program of utilities, the city of Tampa, and a university is seen as a first step in the development of a major effort in the Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater tri-city bay area towards the wide scale use of EV's in this decade. In addition, the incorporation of photovoltaics will have a very beneficial impact in the sol ution of energy, pollution and transportation prob lems in Florida and across the nation. The development of a task force is presently being planned to address relevant problems, possib l e solutions, and short as well long range goals A long term objective of this program is to develop appropriate "off peak rates" for charging vehicles with utility produced power. PLANNED PROGRAM ACTIVITIES FOR YEARS 2-S. This applicant in collaboration with Florida Power Corporation plans to aggressively pursue additional funding from local, state and federal agencies for years 2-5. Additional funding from local sources can come from the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater as well as from Tampa Electric and other smaller utilities such as Seminole Electric, etc. The Florida Power Corporation (FPC) will continue as a partner in this program with strong collaboration and interaction among personnel. FPC plans to add to the EV p r ogram 2-3 new Evans as soon as they become available (ie. TEVans, etc.). FPC is also heavily involved in PV activities, presently monitoring one of the largest PV projects (15 KW pbotovoltaic system made of amorphous silicon panels) with considerab l e information derived from the project concerning the performance of the PV panels and problems related to feeding the electrical PV power into the utility grid. 7

D. FACILITIES The University of South Florida is well equipped and staffed for the operat ion and maintenance of a fleet of vehicles. The University fleet is procured and maintained by the Automotive and Marine Division of Physical Plant. The superintendent of this Division is an engineer with a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University. Due to this educational background there is a tendency toward scientific rigor in the maintenance and operation of the fleet vehicles which would not otherwise be present. The current U niversity fleet consists of 342 vehicles of which 140 are electric. The electric vehicles are of the smaller "golf cart" type. There are 8 service bays which are used for preventive maintenance and repair and there are 5 technicians who maintain the fleet. All of these technicians are qualified for electric vehicle maintenance and repair. This service facility bas a total of 34 years of combined experience with electric vehicles. In addition to the University facilities, Florida Power has extensive experience in flee t operation and maintenance. Electric vehicles (2 Griffon vans) were added to the fleet of over 2400 vehicles in 1985. Florida Power has 8 maintenance facilities strategically l ocated within its service area. Each facility is capab l e of maintaining all the vehicles used by Florida Power, including FPC's electric vehicles. The facility that maintains the two Griffon electric vans is located in St. Petersburg. Selected mechanics were trained by Lucas Chl oride in the proper techniques for electric vehicle maintenance, problem analysis, and repair. Florida Power is very interested in the devel opment of electric vehicles and their acceptance by customers. The Electrical Engineering Department at the University of South Florida is housed in a brand new 72000 ft2 building and bas grown from 18 faculty members six years ago to 30 faculty at the present time. Funded research within the department i ncreased to over 3 million dollars for the past year. This research effort is supported by excellent computing facilities within the College of Engineering. The College operates three PRIME computers, a VAX, a SUN Ethernet and several open-use small computer laboratories. In addition, the Electrical Engineering Department faculty each have their own mM 386 PC's (with co-processors), 40MByte bard drives, and Hewlett-Packard laser printers. Available software includes WordPerfect 5.1, Lotus 123 release 2.2 and 3.0, Lotus Freelance release 3 .0, AutoCAD release 10, and SigmaPlot. 1l


E. LOCATION The Tampa Bay metropolitan area is located on the gulf coast of southern Florida at a latitude of Z7 58'N As a res ult the climate is very warm with a high relative humidity for most of the year. It is an excellent location for any kind of warm weather testing such as battery and air conditioner performance. The average temperatures, hu mi dities (daily min. and max.), and wind speeds by the month and for the year are shown below, Month Temperature Humidity Wind Jan. 59.8F 59-86% 8.6mph Feb. 60.8 56-86 9 2 Mar. 66.2 55-87 9.5 Apr. 726 51-87 9. 3 May 77.1 52 86 8.7 Jun. 80.9 6()..87 8.0 Jul. 82.2 63-88 7.3 Aug 82.2 64-91 7.0 Sep. 80.9 62-91 7.8 Oct. 74.5 57-89 8 5 Nov. 66 7 57-88 8.4 Dec. 61.3 59-87 8.5 Annual 72.0 58-88 8.4 F. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACf For the most part air quality standards in the Tampa Bay area are met with the exception of ozone. Tampa Bay bas been classified as non-attainment for ozone by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The maximum measured levels of the various gasses contained in ambient air together with corresponding allowed values are give n below: Maximum Measured Value Carbon Monoxide (CO) 1-bour maximum of 28.8ppm 8-bour Maximum of 9.3ppm Nitrogen Dioxide Annual Mean of 21.3ppb Ozone Maximum Value Exceeded at times. 13 Maximum Allowed Value 1 br. maximum of 35ppm 8-hour maxirnum .of 9ppm Annual Mean of 50ppb 1-hour value of 125ppb


The ratio of fO&Sil to non-fossil fuel used for electric power generation is high for the Tampa bay area. Florida Power Corporation has a total capacity of 6200MW of which 800MW is nuclear and the remainder is generated by fossil fuels. This represents about 13% non-fossil fue l usage or a ratio of fossil to non-fossil of about 7 to 1. G. EXTERNAL SUPPORT The management team for this site operator program will be primarily located at the of South Florida in the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Center for Urban Transportation Research. Considerable external support will be available both in the form of funding (cost-sharing) and in kind. One of the major contributors to the program will be the Florida Power Corporation (FPC) which is one of the largest utilities in the state with a total generating capacity of over 6200MW. FPC has the most extensive EV experience in the State of Florida and will provide experienced personnel to this program. For example, two electric vans that have been under test in the past three years at FPC will become part of the program for test and evaluation in a "fleet" type operating environment. All of the data and experience acquired, relative to the EV's, will be incorporate d and utilized in this program. In addition, even though USF has very good facilities (see section D) and well trained staff, FPC's equipment, personnel and facilities will also be available to this program. FPC will also provide $100,000 in-kind support and $50,000 for the purchase of an electric vehicle for "commute(' use as part of the cost sharing required by DOE. The City of Tampa (CI') will also participate and contribute to the program although, initially, to a lesser extend than FPC. CT will contribute $10,000 as a cost share with DOE for the purchase of an additional commuter car to be located for test and evaluation at the center of the city. CT will also provide in-kind support with personnel assigned to the program, to artend management meetings for planning, evaluation and scheduling operation of the commuter vehicles. H. SPECIAL INTEREST (not applicable) I. OTHER RESOURCES PHOTOVOLTAICS In addition to the test and evaluation of the electric vehicles, a very significant add-on benefit to this program is the incorporation of photovoltaic systems for the production of electrical power to be used for charging the electric vehicles. The benefits derived from the PV system(s) and an economic analysis are described below. 14


PV fEV Background Although EV's are important transportation options for a number of reasons, their potential for reducing environmental pollution has emerged as a key factor in promoting their development The basis for this assertion is the fact that the emissions from utility generated electricity for charging an EV is less than that from a conventional automobile engine for equa l driving loads. The pollution burden is thus lowered and is also shifted to the power plant site. In many cases the power plant is located in the metropolitan area in which the EV's are used, and thus although the overall levels are reduced, the emissions for the vehicles are still released in their use area. The amount by which pollution levels are reduced by substituting electric energy for conventional automotive energy is a complex function of many variables. Ideally the EV's should draw their power at night when electricity demand is low and the utility plants are operating at high efficiency and low emissions levels. In continuous applications, charging during the day i s desirable. This day charging might cause a demand problem to the utilities since additional generation may have to be built instead of using existing under-utilized generating plants at night. An attractive solution to the above problem is the use of photovoltaic solar energy(PV) for daytime charging. In ongoing studies by the utility industry PV has demonstrated an excellent match to the utility l oad demand12, and utilities are looking forward to its deployment at first for peak demand and ultimately for base load generation. It is thus proposed to include daytime charging with PV in this project. The charging cycle would include low emission night time charging from the utility grid, and zero emissions day time charging from a PV array. The specific requirements of EV's and the unique attnoutes of PV are an ideal team of emerging technologies which can contribute s ignificantly to the reduction of environmental pollution. EV Use. Base Case Scenario EV's can and should be considered for general purpose use and will achieve that objective as advances are made. However, it is necessary to recognize the present limitations of the technology and to select meaningful demonstration projects within that framework. One such case that will be Included in this project is that of a "typical" commuter. This commuter's daily itinerary Includes the following: Driving to the work site in the morning Leaving the vehicle parked outdoors while working Going o ut for lunch or other activities Driving home in the afternoon/evening Running errands in the evening Parking over night -1(}.20 miles -6-10 hours 5-15 miles -1(}.20 miles -1(}.20 miles -1(}.12 hours 15


On average this schedule requires daytime charging in addition to overnight charging to assure reliable vehicle availability. Dayt ime charging can easily be accomplished with a PV array at the work site as shown in the illustration. The following estimates of array outpu t and economics are based upon currently available PV technology. PV E n ergy Generation Array size: 10 ft x 20 ft( -1 parking space) PV peak output: 11 Watts/fil Average available sunlight/day at project site: 6 hours Total PV energy generated/day: 200 x 11 2.2KW x 6 : 13.2 KWhrs For a typical EV with an energy consumption of .S KWbrs/mile this adds 26 miles to the driving range for the day, a good fit to our commuter's schedule. This additional range provided by PV with zero emissions will help achieve feast'bility in many cases for EV's. PV Econo m ics At today's prices PV is not yet competitive with conventional energy, however, the circumstances of this application are a bit more favorable than might be imagined. The PV panels themselves cost $4-$5 /Watt : = = > -$10,000. The structure need only provide shade and can simply be a frame to which the modules are attached. Ordinarily the cost of the land for the array would be added into the balance of systems cost, but in this case the land is already captive as part of the vehicles infrastructure and is not an additional cost associated with use of PV. The power eonditionlng equipment would include a provision for feeding excess PV energy into the utility grid. In a typical situation there would be a row of these structures which would service a random presence of vehicles for charging. A t many times there would be excess energy available which could be fed into the grid for credit, and this would often occur during peaking hours when utility production costs( and emissions levels) are highest Coosidering these factors, a reasonable estimate for the structure and power conditioning would be $5000 Assuming a system lif e of 2S years( typical for PV ), the generation of 365 X 2S X 6hrs X 2.2KW 120,000 KWhrs for a capital investment of $15,000, results in an energy cost of $15,000.00/120,000 = $0.125/KWhr 16


Although this estimate does not include maintenance(which bas been found to be very low for prototype PV piantsll) and the cost of money, the resulting cost is nevertheless competitive with peaking costs for many utilities and illustrates the near feasibility of the economics with today's PV technology. The real factor of interes t for this project, reduced pollution, also bas a real value which can not be easily quantified at this time but certainly aids the economic feasib ility of PV. Also, using the PV array as a car port additional benefits accrue from extending the life of vehicle paint and upholstery and from substan t i a l reduction of the air-(:ondltioning load at the start of the journey home due to lower vehicle temperatures. PV Future Prospect s Today's PV panel cost of $4-SSfWatt is the result of a steady downward t rend from the $100/Watt "space cell' costs of the 1960' s F urther maturing of today's crystalline Si technology is expected to drive costs down to the $2-$3/Watt level, and the emerging ne w thin-film technologi es promise to lower the figure t o $1-$2/Watt which will make PV suit able for bulk power generation. These price reductions are expected to occu r in the 1990's if market demand can justify the capital investments which the PV manufacturing indust ry will have to make to ramp up production and effect economies of scale. The industry needs sizable intermedi ate markets with unique advantages for P V to make this transition, and EV's are a natural. The synergy between EV and PV technology is an opportunity to significantly hasten the deve lopment of each technology and thereby hasten their favorable environmental impact. Each can succeed on its own merits without the other, but together that success should come much soone r J. DATA COLLECI'ION AND REPORTS Each electric vehicle will be equipped with a microprocessor data acquisition system ( MDAS) similar to those developed by D r. Wiley for use on NASA contracts at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (see resume Wiley) Data will be stored in units called records Each reco r d will contain the date and time, the identity of the vehicle operator, and the =nt values of vehicle system variables. Therefore, each record will 'stand alone in the sense that, if a record is los t or damaged, the analysis of the other records will not be affected. There will be two types of records. T ype 1 will be for v ariables which require frequent sampling (ie. ve hicle s peed}, and type 2 will be for va r iable s which do not require frequent sampling ( ie. temperatures). The following vehicle syste m variables will be monitored and store d for later analysis: 1. Vehicle speed (type 1) 2 Battery voltage (type 1) 3. Battery current (type 1) 4. Battery temperatur e (type 2) 5. Outside temperature (type 2) 6. Vehicle interior temperature (type 2) 17


7. State of air conditioner (on-off) (type 2) 8. Charging current (type 2) Each MDAS will store data for up to six hours of vehicle operation and data from each MDAS will be downloaded on a daily basis to an IBM 386 PC (with co-processor) for entry into the project database. Analysis will be performed on the database to recover at least the following types of information: 1. Distance traveled; vehicle range 2. Speed statistics (time in various speed ranges, etc.) 3. Acceleration statistics (number, rate, final speed, etc.) 4. Average battecy statistics (voltage, current, energy supplied, etc.) 5. Peak battel)' statistics (number, peak current and power levels, etc.) 6. Peak versus average bauecy statistics 7. Charging statistics (voltage, current, energy delivered, number of cycles, etc.) I nformation retrieved from the database will be included in the project reports which will be submitted promptly as required in the resulting agreement. The fact that all the data will be stored digitally, downloaded daily, and processed by computer, will guarantee accurate and timely reports. Reports will be composed using WordPerfect 5.1 with imported tables, figures, and graphs made using SigmaPlot, Lotus 123, and Lotus Freelance. The design of the MDAS provides great flexibility for system reconfiguration and for adding additional sensors for other variables. This flexibility will allow for testing of new technologies both on the component and vehicle system levels, and will provide the capability to "fine tune" the project output in the first year as well as in succeeding years. Quality assurance will be achieved by calibrating the MDAS and all vehicle system sensors initially and verifying the calibration on a monthly basis. Capacity tests on all batteries will be performed on a monthly basis. Capacity t est data will be used with vehicle range data to determine pack life. Vehicle maintenance will be performed as required and regular preventive maintenance will be performed monthly in conjunction with the battery capacity tests. In addition battery water levels will be checked weekly. A maintenance log will be kept which will include the type of service performed, the frequency of each type, and the cost of each maintenance item. K. EXPERIENCE As discussed in the section entitled "Personnel" the proposed team has abundant experience in all areas relating to the proposed project. Frank Stead of the University of South Florida and Tony Padilla and Edgar Holt of Florida Power Corporation have extensive experience with fleet operations and with electric vehicles. Lee Stefanakos, Gary Brosch, Don Morel, and J. L Brown, have many years of experience in the management of government grants which is detailed in their individual resumes. Paris Wiley bas 20 years experience in the design and implementation of digital data acquisition systems. 18

......... ....... ........... !! !te Florida Power CORPORATION November 9, 1990 Lee Stefanakos Chairman, Electrical Engineering University of South Florida Tampa, F l orida Dea r Lee: Florida Power Corporation (FPC) is pleased to pledge its support to the USF-DOE Electric Vehicle P rogram. FPC has been involved in the Electric Vehicle (EV) testing for many years, and during the last five years we hava been an active participant in the national effort to test the Electric Vans l n 1984 we purchased two electric vans and have monitored, operate d and maintained them with great success since then We feel that, in F lorida, we are in a unique position to lend o u r EV expertise to this effort. Lee, I have summariz e d FPC's position on Electric Vehicles as follows: FPC strongly supports the use of electric vehicles as a means to lessen air emissions, and to lower the cost of transportation. To that and, FPC supports substantive efforts to further the deYelopment a n d commercia l i zation of reliable, durable and economically feasible e lectric vehicles. After reading the goals of the D O E program we feel that they are complementary to the needs of electric utilities in the area of EVs. Our FPC internal EV program goals and expectations should be well covered by this program Our goal s and expectations in the area of EV are: The raliability of the Battery Sys tem apd the Vehicle must be proven. This may only be obtained through the testing that will be obtained from a long term test such as the one you propose. FPC is both capable and willing to help wi t h this part of the effort. The vehicle(s) raoge(sl under different d riving conditions must b e determined. This can be accomplished by locating the vehicles in different settings where the usage patterns vary. FPC would like to use vehicles in our fleet requirements as well as to place vehicles with GENERAL OFFICE: 320 1 Thirty. fourth Street South P.O Box 14042 St. Petersbu rg, Florida 33733 { 8 1 3) 666 A Florida Progress Company


targeted customers so that this variability of operating patterns may be achieved. We must determine the dQsree of acceptability for EVs among the different drivers and among the various app lications -this will be key to make recommendations in the area of Ergonomics and to recommend to the manufac turers areas of impr o vements c o the cars. FPC has a lready gathered a lot of information applicable to this task. We need to determine the best charging schemes so that the electric utilities may determine the l:>Ut Qff-puk charsing rates for electric vehicles as well as determine their positive Environmental contributions. FPC will be a strong contributor to this task. Since part of USF' s proposal is to include Photovoltaics (P. V.) as an alternate charging mathod, we should determine the positive effects of P.V. charged electric Vehicles on the envi ronment. FPC has the capability of making a significant contribution to this part of the project. As one of the goals and results of this effort, we should be able co identify scenarios in which utilities -developers -researchers and car manufac turers may work together with a common goal of bringing reliable, durable, and inexpensive electric vehicles the market. Florida Power has the largest amount of experience in E V operation, testing and maintenance in the State of Florida. Our Mr. Edgar Holt, Manager of New Products and Services (see attached resume) has been in charge of our electric vans for the past three years, and will be part of the management team for the project. If the Department of Energy selects USF's proposal and awards the university a contract under D.O. E.'s Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Site Operators Program, F lorida Power will contribute both monetarily ($50,000 will be budgeted by FPC for fiscal year 1991) and "in-kind" (our "in-kind" coneribution including our Marker Research is estimated at: $100,000) to this project: with the hop e chat its results will be useful to us and to the nation.
