Dave Sullivan – Team leader and Electrolosys expert Mike Whiteman – Teams analytical expert
Adelio De Monte – Professor at Fleming College and is interested in the results and performance analysis of the system DSE Automotive – Automotive company in Brampton owned by David Stirk which will be helping us with the automotive side of things and is interested in the end gains of the system.
In today’s world gas prices are rapidly sky rocketing from where they where 5 years ago. Our goal is to create a system that will convert water into hydrogen fuel using electrolysis to cut down the need of fuel by a considerable amount. This system will be able to be installed into any vehicle with an internal combustion engine or a diesel engine.
Construction of electrolizer at DSE Automotive Install electrolizer into the car as well as all other necessary devices such as bubblers and valves. Create the PWM device for the power supply to the electrolyzer Hand wind the toroid transformer coil to combine difference wave outputs.
Install dc to ac inverter to power the PWM Install Rectifier to convert the ac back to dc Tune the PWM to resonance frequency of the cell. Create o2 sensor modifier which will allow us to manually control the fuel/air ratio as lean as 18/1 Create the mass airflow sensor mod to allow us to match the tuned o2 sensor modification.
Create analog readout display of current fuel air mixture so we can visually see how lean we are running it. Tune all sensors to the optimum efficiency according to how much hydrogen is being produced. Gather statistics of sensor settings and performance statistics to do a performance analysis on it. In the end we should have a very efficient vehicle

In closing, we have a project ahead of us that will not only extend our knowledge in electrolysis and other aspects of this project, but we will be creating a brilliant device, that if done properly, should yield amazing results to help reduce fuel consumption in an everyday vehicle. This not only be an incredibly project for Fleming College but may produce an end product that could make major changes in the way vehicles operate today.
