Tesla Model S induction reluctance motor for solar powered sailboats (The solar-powered Marina power station)

Tesla Model S induction reluctance motor for solar-powered sailboats (The Solar Powerd Marina Power station)

We sail for fun! But a deployable solar array on your sail would produce a lot of power! So your sailboat would require a lot of Tesla storage batteries perhaps as ballast? Once back at the Marina you would want to dump this power back into the grid.

We sail for fun! This means we do use the sailboat’s engine some of the time but here we propose to model the Tesla S Induction Reluctance Motor onboard the sailboat. The boat is much heavier than the car but it is displacing seawater and travels much slower so what would be the distance traveled per charge?

Assuming the existence of a deployable sail solar voltaic cells what is the surface area of a sailboat sail? and power produced?

If the sailboat replaced its ballast(The Kiel) That would a  very large Tesla Battery storage so we would need to compute payback periods. We need to compute time the sailboat is in use. Some sailboats are for hire and would be out on the water often, these we propose could have a very large amount of battery storage aboard. The weekend recreational boat could have less battery storage onboard to reflect the lower frequency of unfurling the “power sail”

Someday soon we would want the Tesla customer to be able to sale back power through the Tesla charging grid.

This idea is criticized by the non-existence of a deployable solar powered sail! you cant have existing rigged photovoltaic on a sail flapping in the wind. I think this could be developed

One example of a sailboat sail area

Total sail area 91 m2 / 979.51 sq.ft.

A rooftop system of this size would produce 12,000 kWh per year

Our sailboat much less

in a perfect world where you are hiring out your sailboat every day for 6 or more hours with the perfect solar sail, you would be making $400 a month plus your paying guests

Here is an example that could be improved with Tesla motors and plugin
