Design of a DC Brushed Motor Controller and Static Air Resistance System for an Electric Vehicle
Team Member(s): H.R. Rosenstiel and P. Anderson Semester: Spring 2010
This electric vehicle is capable of speeds in excess of 60 mph for one hour. The motor control system controls the efficient use of the battery through various speed and torque conditions associated with a race vehicle. The static air resistance system uses the static drag created by the nose of the vehicle as it moves through the atmosphere to turn an enclosed turbine and convert this wind into 2 Amps of energy @24volts. This system adds no drag to the system as the wind resistance on the front of the vehicle is normally static.
