Electric forklifts with vehicle to grid technology for efficient warehouse energy management
Matjaž Knez, Péter Bajor, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: From an electric utility perspective, the sun is an intermittent electrical generator, tolerable in huge quantities, but increasingly difficult to manage. The nature of sun is unpredictable, and the Slovenian National Grid has no significant storage opportunities - if the V2G (vehicle-to-grid) solutions could be competitive in the near future it could prepare for special circumstances: the batteries of electrically driven forklifts could provide attractive storage functions for renewable electricity storage and for backupping the electrical national grid. This paper shows the study of the current research findings on the ŽVehicle to Gridʼ innovative concept and a proposed theoretical model of Forklift-to-Grid integration into energy management of a warehouse. Analyses of data, calculations of the economic value and of the profitability of the proposed business model yielded positive results that fully confirm the thesis that the integration of environmentally friendly renewable energy sources and new technologies into the logistic processes can improve logistics management while minimizing the negative impact of business on the environment.
Keywords: CO2 emmisions, forklift-to-grid, photovoltaic, vehicle-to-grid, warehouse energy management

Application of the european SINTAP procedure to the failure analysis of a broken forklift
Nenad Gubeljak, Uwe Zerbst, Jožef Predan, Maks Oblak, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: The recently developed European flaw assessment procedure SINTAP was applied to the failure analysis of a broken fork of a forklift. Based on the service load at failure, critical crack sizes were determined at different analysis levels of the procedure. It was shown in the present case study that the failure was caused by defective design.
Keywords: structural integrity, mechanics of structures, forklift, fracture mechanics, critical crack size, failure analysis, SINTAP procedure, load bearing capacity
