Design of Battery Electric Vehicle Powertrain for Three Wheeler Rickshaw

Published on September 21, 2021 um 15:27

Explain your idea in details:

The idea is to change the power train of these three wheeler rickshaws from IC engine into electrical power train. I will design all the components needed to use electric motor as driving mechanism. Components to be designed and selected are traction motor, OBC (on board charger), inverter, DC to DC converter, cooling system, Battery pack, transmission gear(reducer), differential gear, battery management system, pot box (pedal system).

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The benefits of using three-wheeler electric rickshaws will be pollution free mechanism of transportation, noise free environment, the owner of these vehicles expense will reduce drastically due to reduction on maintenance needed and due to no need of paying for gas or fuel, the cost of moving from one place to place using these vehicles will decrease, the market area of the owners of these vehicles will increase because they can be allowed to go to center of the cities which are not allowed now, the need of import of gas or fuel from other countries will decrease. the success of the idea can be evaluated by comparing it to the already existing three wheelers on the basis of pollution, cost and daily expenditure per KM.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

the plan is to build prototype and make the three wheeler very efficient. and then propose to manufacture it in amount enough for ride companies while still being available for individual customers. this will be a great advertisement since it will show its profitability. finally the plan is to propose it for mass production. the financial sources will be government loans and banks. and I will get help from the university where I attended my bachelor and masters degree.

This is an astonishing idea , the recent techonological advancement in this electromechanical field is not that satisfactory since it could make a whole lot more in the technological growth through putting much effort on electrical and mechanical integertion, I think this work gone way far, since it considered battery management system, I want to see this work on its best performance, i have no doubt this idea will win.
