Project Description

The main objective of this project is to take a normal bike and make a model for an electric bike using MATLAB simulation.

 

The bike we use now in day-to-day life consumes petrol and causes a lot of pollution and sound. As we all know petrol price is not going to be cheaper any more, and it cannot be made or produced easily. For a better future we need to accept a few changes. Best alternative to this problem is Electric bike; it runs on electricity and does not emit gas out of the system and makes least noise.

  • Introduction

In this project we are working on converting ACTIVA 6G into electric. We kept the model or chassis as it is; we changed the IC (internal combustion) engine with an electric motor. We kept the 2-wheeler bike experience the same as before by keeping the specs as it is.

  • Involved software

  • Microsoft Excel
  • MATLAB SIMULINK

  • Implementation

  1. COLLECTING DATA OF ACTIVA 6G
  2. GETTING A SUITABLE DRIVE CYCLE
  3. CALCULATING PARAMETERS FOR BATTERY PACK AND MOTOR
  4. MATLAB SIMULINK WITH CALCULATED DATA
  5. MODEL OF ELECTRIC ACTIVE 6G

  • COLLECTING DATA OF ACTIVA 6G

For our model, ACTIVA 6G we added all the hardware the same as it is .We used specs as follows:

  1. Tyres and Wheels
  2. Dimensions
  3. Chassis and Suspension
  4. Brakes

 

We considered different forces applied on our model like Rolling resistance force, Aerodynamic drag force, Hill climbing force, linear acceleration force, Tractive Force.

  • GETTING A SUITABLE DRIVE CYCLE

 

We took a drive cycle which has our required parameters considering top speed, average speed, and speed variation. We have used the WLTC drive cycle with some modifications.

 

The picture shows the Drive cycle used in our modelling, in image it shows up to 200 seconds data vs. speed at that second. This is just a sample. We used a datasheet which carries data from the 1st second to1022th second .

  • CALCULATING PARAMETERS FOR BATTERY PACK AND MOTOR

  • MATLAB SIMULINK WITH CALCULATED DATA

All the calculated forces are added in this model of simulation, to give the base characteristics of the vehicle.

  • MODEL OF ELECTRIC ACTIVE 6G

  • Conclusion

This is the output of our mini project.
