We’ve Got The Power! Measured.

At last, the power is in our hands.

We have a working TriPO prototype. The graph below shows force, torque and power measured (computed) from the data for one revolution.

A graph of the power measurement from the first working TriPo prototype

Starting at bottom dead position, the greatest force is around 130 N, torque 22 Nm, and average power for the whole revolution 22 W.

This might not make a huge impression on an average cyclist, it is a milestone in TriPO development. Although there’s still a lot to be done, we now at least know it can be done. Which is like half of everything has been done already.
