Electric Vehicles (EVs), Direct Wheel Motor


As in the era of 21st century, more numbers of industries rising and with these industries there are many innovations been made to help the mankind. With the rising industrialization the production cost and time both are decreased to a great extent. As industrialization occurs the use of resources like petrol and gas or fossil fuels increases drastically. With industrialization there is also increase in number of internal combustion engine cars which has led to more load on the nature resources like petrol diesel and natural gas. The other problem with the internal combustion engine is the pollutants that are released by them. For resolving these problems, the electrical cars come into picture. An electrical vehicle comprises a traction motor, starter motor, and a battery bank controlled by a microprocessor in support with the vehicles instantaneous torque required so that the engine is run only under conditions of high efficiency. All electric vehicles run on the energy stored in the battery. These batteries are connected to a motor and direct power supply is given to motor by the batteries. Each wheel may have different motors or all the power is transferred to the wheels by a single motor and mechanical linkages. The advantage of all electric vehicles is that they are zero emission vehicles. But all electric vehicles are not solution as they only reduce the pollutants. The major issue of all electric vehicles is that the current battery technology is not capable of producing Electric Vehicles (EVs) which can compete with current generation automobiles.
