Project Definition Overview

This project focuses on the development of a Electric Motor Test Bench for RIT's Electric Vehicle Team. This project is designed to test the capabilities of the motor of an electric vehicle when used in conjunction with a motor control unit. The test bench will apply a dynamically variable load to the motor and controller, and then measure how these components react to the given conditions.
