open in viewer

The possibility of an ambulance not supplying enough power to medical devices is a major concern, resulting in a need for more reliable and efficient systems. To address this problem, the overall power consumption of an ambulance was calculated and compared to the actual electrical requirements. Alternate forms of power generation which could be utilized within an ambulance are discussed, in order to implement a more efficient power system. Among the most commercially viable solutions are the instillation of LED lighting to reduce overall power consumption, utilizing lithium ion batteries for efficient and sustainably energy production, and the integration of solar panels to effectively absorb additional energy.
