Electrical Quick Heat: Concept and Application 710033

An electrical quick heat system, composed of a three-phase alternator, a resistive heating assembly, and simple controls can be easily integrated with a standard hot water heating system or utilized with its own blower and plenum chamber. Such a system, with a 5 in. diameter alternator, can supply up to 2.5 kW of power which can be used to give greater than 100 F air temperature boost in less than 30 sec. The simplicity of the system should bring it within most economic bogeys for automotive quick heat systems.
