Lehrstuhl für Elektrische Maschinen und Antriebe

Student project electric car

First electric car at the University of Wuppertal

The Chair of Electrical Machines and Drives is also working in the field of electromobility. As a platform for developments, we have converted a light vehicle with conventional drive (4 kW, 45 km/h) to an electric drive concept.

Some technical data: Weight: 350kg, Length: 2,7m, Width: 1,5m, Seats: 2 Motor: Permanent excited synchronous machine with 13,8Nm, 30A, Lithium iron phosphate cell battery: 4,5kWh, Communication: CAN bus, At 45km/h we expect a demand of 3kW and a range of 65 km.

Work on this project can be found under Teaching Bachelor/Master Theses or ask our Secretary.

Other upcoming work: Optimization of the drive, Integration of the battery system, Intelligent charging technology, Energy recovery (recuperation), Road approval.
