I can’t find anything that describes the changes to the sensors. What changes have you seen that suggest that extra harvesting is the target?
It would be nice to see the TD, wouldn’t it? From the reporting I’ve seen the interpretation could go both ways, but I think it goes back to the dual batteries and the FIA not understanding the systems which are being used. This new sensor may be just a way to get on top of that. It’s always been a bit of abracadabra how they are seeing all energy flows with just one sensor, for example in a two battery setup, one path (ES <> K) which is regulated, and another which is not ( ES <> H <> K).
Agreed. It would be nice to see the TD. I don’t think it has to do with 2 batteries. The 2 batteries would be internal to the ES and the sensor monitors the energy flow in and out of the ES and not it’s constituent components.
There are actually two sensors, one at the ES and one at the K. The only way I have been able to make sense of this arrangement is to assume that the monitoring software looks for simultaneous quantities of energy flows across the two sensors and treats that as following the ES <> K path. Given that there is an energy store between the two sensors a couple of frequencies involved, monitoring and reporting, it’s always seemed to me there might be opportunities for clever engineers to manipulate the values being monitored.
The TD may be as simple as saying that they must use a different, newly created, sensor and, like the fuel flow sensor, the teams are not allowed to know, or monitor, its operating frequencies. But that’s pure conjecture on my part.
