Electric Vehicle Crash Course

Everything you need to know about Electric Vehicle Project & Prototype Development

Language: English

Instructor: Dr. Jignesh Makwana

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.

Practice Assignments:

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.
