Why this course?
I am Dr. Jignesh Makwana.
I have experienced during the past several years that electrical vehicle projects are gaining much attention amongst students which is obvious for today’s world’s trend toward sustainable green transportation system. Interaction with such enthusiastic students from various engineering branches, as well as other interested peoples made me realize that despite of numbers of books and resources available, students are facing problem for getting started for their Electric Vehicle Project. So I decided to design such curriculum that fits in one bucket to suit all kind of EV enthusiastic students.
If you got the point, you can guess that, this course does not include differential equations and dynamic modeling, but beside, it has much more to offer from basic Electrical Vehicle Calculations, Demonstration & Practice. This course is a bundle to provide information, knowledge and practice. This course starts with EV calculation section followed by the Electric bicycle project component and demonstration of different EV Motors & controllers. Now it turned in to community of most active EV enthusiastic students sharing their assignment and projects.
Course is not limited to these contents; many more things will be added in future that can be helpful for Electric Vehicle Project.
What this Course Includes?
This course is designed to help EV enthusiastic of all age to start Electric Vehicle Projects and Prototype Development. Please check the course curriculum or watch "Introduction" session for more detail.
At the end of EV Calculation Section, you will be excited to solve specially designed assignment for finding, EV motor rating, torque, range of vehicle and complete data sheet of your EV Project. It is not about only mathematical equations, but you will also learn about many fundamental concepts too.
