I would like some help to evaluate the electrical feasibility of a system to heat 35 gram of thermoplastic material (for active stiffness control) in 50 ms, by about 100 degrees Celsius.
The material will be for example a thermoplastic polymer such as poly carbonate, or a composite. The idea is to have some sort of resistive wires integrated in the material for the heating process, similar as done in . But please do not worry about the material part to much.
From a rough calculation i get that the required energy is:
1200 [J/kg°C]*0.035 [kg]*100[°C]=4000[J]
to heat it in 50 ms, the power required would be approximately:
4000[J]/0.050[s]=80 000 W or 80kW.
At this point i would like to know if this is roughly feasible or not from an power and current point of view with a battery set or supper capacitors of a "typical" electric car? What type of Power Draws for short peaks are feasible with capacitors, and batteries which are typically available in electric cars? What is the approximate range? Do i need to go down a factor of 10, or can i go up a factor of 10?
