Electric Vehicle Recommendations

Friday, Jan. 17 2014


PPIHC would like to make the following recommendations to all electric vehicle participants:

1) Each motor should have a controller that monitors the internal temperature of the motor’s components and its own components and automatically reduces power supplied to the motor to protect it and the controller from over-heating.

2) The power output of each motor must not exceed the continuous power rating of the motor when tested using a coolant whose in-port temperature reflects the temperature that will be experienced during the race.
