Lightweight Electric/Hybrid Vehicle Design, covers the particular automotive design approach required for hybrid/electrical drive vehicles. There is currently huge investment world-wide in electric vehicle propulsion, driven by concern for pollution control and depleting oil resources. The radically different design demands of these new vehicles requires a completely new approach that is covered comprehensively in this book. The book explores the rather dramatic departures in structural configuration necessary for purpose-designed electric vehicle including weight removal in the mechanical syst.It is assumed that sealed batteries are to be used and consequently a battery voltage of 96 V was chosen to optimize the efficiency of motor and controller and particularly with an eye to controller cost. 200 V MOSFETS are ... As can be seen, the permanent magnet brushless DC motor is the optimum performer at the two key cruise conditions. ... 150 V a€“ an unsustainable level for some choppers a€“ consequently friction braking was often used; (b) a separate battery charger was required.
