Motor Torque Calculations For Electric Vehicle
Index Terms: Acceleration, Electric Vehicle, Grade ability, Motor, Speed, Torque, Traction
Abstract: It is estimated that 25% of the total cars across the world will run on electricity by 2025. An important component that is an integral part of all electric vehicles is the motor. The amount of torque that the driving motor delivers is what plays a decisive role in determining the speed, acceleration and performance of an electric vehicle. The following work aims at simplifying the calculations required to decide the capacity of the motor that should be used to drive a vehicle of particular specifications.
