In a report issued Tuesday, Trip Chowdry of Global Equities Research he discussed possible ways Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) plans to increase the driving range of its popular Model S line of electric automobiles.

Chowdry said that the answer to how Tesla can accomplish this may lie within its inverter technology and frequency modulation. The inverter converts DC (from batteries) into AC, which powers the motor. This creates a Sine Wave Form, which has a typical frequency of 50 to 60 Hz. However, if the frequency is somehow modified in the inverter, the waveform is modified, and the conversion from DC to AC becomes more efficient. This would mean that a regular charge could power a Tesla's road trip for an increased amount of miles.

Furthermore, the analyst noted that in Tesla's car design, the Fiber Optic cable interconnects the three basic components: Electric Storage Unit, Control Unit and Propulsion Unit. The signals travel at the speed of light, which makes this system very efficient.

Shares of Tesla traded recently at $194.40, down 0.66 percent.
