Electric Vehicle Workshop

About Workshop:

Environmental concerns due to emissions and the depleting fossil resources are turning the attention of the automobile manufactures and the public towards renewable sources like solar and wind which are carbon emission free. Conventional engines in the automobiles are replaced by battery and electrical motors which can be designed to seamlessly suit the powering requirements with suitably designed power converters. The important components of the system are the battery charging stations which have AC or DC inputs from the grid network or directly from the RES, batteries in the vehicles, converters and electric motors. The government is encouraging research in EV due to the advantages with monetary benefits to the manufacturers and users.
