Abstract: This paper provides a step by step guide for calculation of powertrain unit including the configuration of battery pack of a two-wheeler electric vehicle. Based on the design and desired performance of the vehicle, the total resistance force, torque and power is calculated and designed in MATLAB and Simulink, which is essential for selection of electric motor. Knowing the voltage and capacity of an individual cell the configuration of battery pack is calculated and depicted in SOLIDWORKS Computer Aided Design model. A website is developed which is competent to perform the necessary calculations and display the output of the desired performance parameters.
Keywords: Electric Vehicle, MATLAB and Simulink, Torque, Computer Aided Design.
Scope of the Article: Design and Diagnosis
