Search by Classification
Among the most common classification systems, we can cite the IPC (International Patent Classification), which divides technology into 8 sections with approximately 70 000 subdivisions. Each subdivision is attributed to a symbol consisting of Arabic numerals and Latin characters.
For more information about IPC:
B60L 8/00 is a IPC related to electric propulsion with power supply from force of nature, e.g. sun, wind.
Search by bibliographic data
Applicant, inventor, filing date, priority number ... etc.
Boolean operators (or, and, not) and truncation (? To replace a letter or a void, * to replace a variable length chain of characters, ...) can be used for relevant research.
Example: (car? or vehicle?) And solar?
