P13261: Electric Vehicle Powertrain

Planning & Execution

Table of Contents

Project Summary

The goal of this project will be to design a powertrain for the RIT Electric Vehicle Team's motorcycle to compete in the TTXGP. This powertrain will consist of the motor, controller, and transmission. The traction control system will ensure that the power is effectively transferred to the track. This is accomplished through the control of power to keep the front wheel on the ground and the rear wheel from spinning. The transmission will keep the motor in the appropriate range for maximum power and efficiency. This will reduce the power requirements and thus the weight of the battery pack.

The primary purpose of this senior design project is to increase the performance of the Electric Vehicle Team's motorcycle.
