How does an Electric Car work ? | Tesla Model S


Learn Engineering


Published on May 30, 2017

Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. 

This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car.

We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner.

The working of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.

China to ban sale of gas vehicles

China plans to end sales of gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles, a move that follows similar announcements by the UK, France and others phasing out combustion-engine automobiles

The world’s second-largest economy had pledged to cap its carbon emissions by 2030, and its looming ban on gas and diesel vehicles will prompt automakers around the world to boost their lineups of electric vehicles. China may implement the ban later than 2040, leaving lots of time for automakers to prepare. (Bloomberg)

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-10/china-s-fossil-fuel-deadline-shifts-focus-to-electric-car-race-j7fktx9z

Agelbert NOTE: Expect the fossil fuel bought and paid for TOOL in the White House to make more bellicose noises about China. The fossil fuelers   are NOT happy campers about the EV writing on the wall. Cornered animals are nothing compared to a conrnered profit over people and planet polluting MONSTER like the Fossil Fuel Industry.

This will get ugly.  :( Let us hope the Trump fossil fuel front man doesn't go to war with China over this using some baloney pretext.

The Fossil Fuelers ARE going down. The question is whether they take the rest of us with them or not.

Irma Reflections — Charging My Nissan LEAF After Mother Nature Aimed & Hit Two Trump States

September 15th, 2017 by Cynthia Shahan

SNIPPET:

I’ll stick to the subject of electric vehicles. It’s not good to mention climate change unless the Trump supporter is tired out from boarding the house with storm shutters (and wondering if they will have a roof soon). Warm waters = larger storms, hurricanes, monsoons. This costs lives, homes, and billions if not trillions of dollars of economic damage. Being “pro life” and “pro fossil fuels” doesn’t make sense it’s an emotional oxymoron.  

The day before Irma — plenty of chargers available.

Thank you. We all enjoy different approaches. I do just ramble on a bit much..

Great Article!

I'm looking at a Leaf lease or purchase and am studying the ownwer's manual. It seems that the ideal battery state is between 30% and 80% in order to make it last as long as possible. Also, that slow charging is better for the longevity than fast charging. I am retired, so I will never even need a level two type of charging, never mind a fast charge level 3.

My question for you is, do you start the air conditioner a few minutes before getting into the car (while the power cable is still connected to the house so as not to use battery power)?

Can you do that without a cell phone from an internet connected PC? I don't have a cell phone.

I live in Vermont so I would consider doing this in winter for heating (also for battery heating when the temp goes below -1F as the manual states) and every now and then in summer.

Also, can you make the charger stop at 80% or are you just limited to a certain amount of time? Since I rarely drive more than 8 or ten miles in any given day (several days can go by without any driving), I want the car kept between 30% and 80% battery state most of the time.

I appreciate your advice.

I keep my wife's Leaf in that range. A little bit of mental arithmetic and I have the desired charging time. For level 2, I figure and 1.7KWhours for ten percent, which is about 16minutes.

Why one guy bought a 2017 Nissan Leaf electric car: it was a great deal

 Sean Szymkowski

Sep 15, 2017

SNIPPET:

The deals, incentives, and rebates currently available on the 2017 Nissan Leaf are generous and well documented.

A handful of utility companies across the United States have offered generous discounts, likely backed by Nissan itself, to move the current-generation Leaf from dealerships to driveways.

All of this has occurred as the 2018 Nissan Leaf prepares to launch early next year in North America.

Electric Motorhome Powered By Solar Panels & A Battery
September 24th, 2017 by Cynthia Shahan

SNIPPET 1:

Move over, tiny house, and take notes. German-based motorhome manufacturer Dethleffs recent e.home, an electric motorhome concept, is solar-paneled, clean battery-powered, comfortable, and bright. How about that for a sustainably sensible option for the camping family or the retired couple with wanderlust and a conscience. It’s a beauty. The e.home is covered in 334 square feet of solar panels and has an estimated range of about 103 miles when fully equipped.

Until this choice, motorhome camping travelers were limited to tents or dependant on fossil fuels in choosing a motorhome. Well, this is still just a concept, but Dethleffs is looking to change that.






SNIPPET 2:

Quote
“The Dethleffs e.home also maximizes efficiency by using phase-change materials to absorb heat and release it throughout the day as ambient temperatures fluctuate. Infrared panels throughout the inside of the vehicle also provide a comfortable, warm atmosphere.”

So, take your time and travel the greener way. It is doable and offers lots of walking or hiking while you charge — or leisurely artist pursuits inside. Catch up on all the books you want to read. “The battery pack lasts for approximately 1,500 charges — about 250,000 kilometers (155,000 miles ) — before needing replacement. The e-home supports both level 2 and DC fast-charging, and the solar panels provide 3 kilowatts of supplementary battery-charging electricity.”

Every vehicle on the road needs to be electric or hybrid electric to lessen air pollution (pollution which causes deaths , illnesses, etc.) And there are more reasons to protect our planet’s environment, as well. Large vehicles such as motorhomes, semi trucks, yachts, electric buses, tugboats, and trains need to move over to clean electricity as much as (or more than) other vehicles, to help the planet breathe.

Agelbert NOTE: Check out all the links when you have the time. There is a wealth of information there about the practical feasability of totally eliminating the use of fossil fuels for internal combustion engine powered transportation. We will still need lubricants, but since they are not burned, we can use them sustainably in our macines. That may be the only viable future function of oil refinery production IF our future is one where human civilization survives.

Quote
"The fossil fuel industry swallows up $5.3 trillion a year worldwide in hidden costs to keep burning fossil fuels, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
 
This money, the IMF noted, is in addition to the $492 billion in direct subsidies offered by governments around the world through write-offs and write-downs and land-use loopholes.

In a sane world these subsidies would be invested to free us from the deadly effects of carbon emissions caused by fossil fuels, but we do not live in a sane world. "  -- Chris Hedges

Quote
"The damage suffered by Houston, Tampa and Miami is not an anomaly. It is the beginning of the end. Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee." - Chris Hedges
