Exploration of Strategies to Increase Electrical Power Efficiency
The Harley-Davidson-SCOPE team researched and conducted a feasibility analysis on various ways to improve electrical system efficiency. The team generated a wide range of ideas and narrowed down potential solutions based on technical feasibility, cost considerations and adherence to brand image. The technical feasibility analysis used computational models, material testing and testing of prototype systems. Once concept solutions were selected, the team designed a full-scale prototype and performed bench top tests and in-depth financial analyses. Increased electrical efficiency will have many benefits for Harley riders.
