Simplified Explanation of How Electric Cars Work

In this video, I walk though an EV Display Board which has all of the parts of an Electric Vehicle and talked about the parts them selves and showed the parts working from start to finish. This demonstration gives the simplified explanation of how Electric Cars Work. I know I said a few thing off like one spot I said milli amp volts when I meant to say just mili volt drop. My video editor won't allow me to change the audio. But you get the basic picture of how an electric car will work. If your interested in seeing the schematic, please see my other companion video to this.

Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were tse_10. Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition. The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up. In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs). It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.

How Electric Vehicles Work - the technology underlying an EV - Electric vehicles take many forms and have many different technologies in them, but there are some basic components that all EVs, whether a hydrogen fuel cell EV, a battery-electric EV, or a hybrid-electric vehicle, will share. Here is a look at the way these core technologies are used to make several types of vehicle. Article source: -underlying-an-ev-video/ Site: Twitter: Facebook: Youtbe:

Stuff They Don't Want You To Know - Electric Vehicles
If electric cars have been around since the 19th century, then why haven't they become more widespread? Skeptics say the technology isn't viable yet, but conspiracy theorists think there's more to the story. Tune in and learn more in this podcast.
