April 14th

SCF Readers,

HLRTF shoots up the chart early and requires your full focus.

Currently up approximately 28%, HLRTF has already hit a high of $.1367 so far today.

On top of that, the company just dropped this breaking news:

Hillcrest High-Efficiency Inverter Enables Significant Improvement in Electric Motor Efficiency

  • Internal testing of Hillcrest high-efficiency inverter with 80kW electric motor achieves impressive motor efficiency gains.
  • Test results confirm ability of Hillcrest inverter technology to improve electric motor efficiency when using high switching frequencies.
  • First technical whitepaper will be released on Thursday, April 21.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hillcrest Energy Technologies (CSE: HEAT) (OTCQB: HLRTF) (FRA: 7HIA.F), a clean technology company developing transformative power conversion technologies and control system solutions for next-generation electrical systems, has completed initial internal testing of its high-efficiency inverter with an electric motor and will release the results in an upcoming whitepaper on Thursday, April 21.

Internal tests announced previously have already confirmed the ability of the Hillcrest inverter technology to achieve efficiencies exceeding 99% at switching frequencies up to 60 kHz.

New tests were performed using the 10kW Hillcrest high-efficiency inverter proof of concept on an 80kW electric motor currently used in EV powertrain applications. After running efficiency tests on the motor to establish a performance baseline at the 10kHz switching frequency, the same tests were run at 20kHz, 40kHz and 60kHz. Results showed motor efficiency improvements at each increased switching frequency level, confirming the ability of the Hillcrest technology to leverage higher switching frequencies without generating additional losses/heat, thereby enabling the electric motor to operate at higher efficiency levels.

Currently, electric motors used in electric vehicle powertrains operate within a switching frequency range of 8kHz to 16kHz due to the historic tradeoff between the best possible switching behavior and acceptable thermal losses,” said Harald Hengstenberger, managing director and founder of Systematec GmbH, a strategic partner to Hillcrest and current power electronics design house to the German automotive industry. “The ability of the Hillcrest high-efficiency inverter to operate at much higher switching frequencies without generating additional losses will now allow motor manufacturers to take advantage of new motor concepts not previously available to them.

From a technical standpoint, HLRTF has now moved above 4 lines of potential support including its:

  • 5-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA)
  • 20-Day SMA
  • 5-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA)
  • 13-Day EMA

If potential support grows at those levels, it could become building blocks for an even bigger near term move.

Take a second now to read my initial HLRTF report below and get it on your radar quickly.

Let's hop to it.

I've been tracking a past champ closely and based on an acquisition, a collaboration, and recent game-changing hires, it could be poised to make another big move.

Brought to your attention back in 2021, this profile caught fire to make a strong intraday surge of 26% from an open of $.30 to a high of $.379.

Now with it trading towards the lower end of its 52-week range, it's time to get it back on your radar.

And with it poised to make a major name for itself in the global power electronics market, one that is currently valued at more than $25Bn according to Allied Market Research, time could be of the essence to learn this company's name quickly.

For Thursday, April 14th, this past champ will need your complete focus:

No. 3 HLRTF Potential Catalyst - Company Plans To Deploy A Comprehensive Inverter Technology Platform

Hillcrest Traction Inverter Underpins Broader technology Platform With Multiple End-Uses And Applications

  • High-efficiency inverter technology has the potential to revolutionize how electric motors respond and how efficiency is gained
  • Adaptable architecture reduces development time for wide range of applications
  • First technical whitepaper expected in upcoming weeks

VANCOUVER, BC, April 7, 2022 /CNW/ - Hillcrest Energy Technologies (CSE: HEAT) (OTCQB: HLRTF) (FRA: 7HIA.F), a clean technology company developing transformative power conversion technologies and control system solutions for next-generation electrical systems, has announced plans to deploy a comprehensive inverter technology platform based on its initial product offering, a high-efficiency silicon carbide traction inverter for electric vehicles.

Hillcrest's traction inverter represents a new class of inverter technology that solves many common challenges faced by today's EV powertrains. Lighter, more compact and more efficient than current inverters, the Hillcrest high-efficiency inverter enables reduced overall vehicle weight, increased payload and range capability and reduced heat production/loss, thereby optimizing performance and reliability.

"We set out to be a market leader in developing and deploying next-generation energy solutions," said Ari Berger, Hillcrest CTO. "As technology-forward experts, we are uniquely positioned to execute to our vision and deliver high-efficiency inverter solutions that have the potential to revolutionize global electrification. We've already achieved inverter efficiencies exceeding 99% at switching frequencies up to 60 kHz – enabling further efficiency enhancements in the overall system, such as electric motors. These accomplishments exceed any other inverter solutions we've seen on the market thus far. Moving forward, we will continue to strive for more ground breaking improvements as we develop additional applications."

In addition to electric vehicles and the mobility industry, the Hillcrest inverter technology platform can improve efficiency and reliability across a variety of end uses and applications where inverters play a key role, including grid-tied renewables, charging and storage systems, and high voltage/high power applications such as utility-scale grid, rail and container ships.

"Based on the addressable markets and our technology development timeline we initially optimized our inverter design for vehicle electrification and other e-mobility uses," stated Hillcrest CEO Don Currie. "Conversations with more than a dozen automakers and automotive suppliers have validated the value proposition for our inverter technology to meet not only current, but future EV needs."

"We also recognized the value our inverter offers in numerous other high-potential applications beyond vehicle electrification," Currie continued, "and are hard at work on the development of a grid-connected power generation application with a commercial prototype planned within the next 12 months."

[...]

Over the coming weeks, the Company expects to release its first technical whitepaper on the Hillcrest inverter technology. The first paper will include test results confirming the material elimination of switching losses and inverter efficiency exceeding 99%.
