Storing braking energy and crutching it inside the battery by storing high current electrical energy by taking assistance of super capacitors and subsequently transferring them into the battery gradually is the purpose of the Electric vehicle regenerative braking system. Mohammad Islam and Sinto Anthony T has remarkably worked on the venture and has equipped the TMS C2000 Piccolo 3200 Launchpad which is a cost effective and a modular evaluation platform that enables the user to get in depth experience of real time and closed loop control improvement.
The creators have also armed a driver circuitry, which is utilized for driving the BLDC motor, switching circuitry, boost converter circuit, battery, multimeter and a flying wheel.
The functioning of the BLDC motor is fairly simple and sparks curiosity amongst the onlookers, which is the ideal motive of this brainchild. The invention speaks out itself for its subtle working which initially involves the establishment of a connection in between the BLDC motor and the stand. The BLDC motor’s shaft is connected to a flying wheel and driver circuitry drives the BLDC motor. The BLDC motor is kept in a regeneration mode as a mark of the equipment of the whole circuit. The motor starts sprinting to a higher speed and for fulfilling the requirement of the invention; breaks are applied to the motor. After applying the breaks, the current flows the super capacitors and as a result the motor abandons its current state and stops racing.
The whole event is then recorded in the multimeter and 2 amperes of current is being stored and reported which satisfies the invention’s objective. The circuit is fairly simple and the establishment is way to easy for a learner to implement. The multimter stores the current and depicts the eventful result fantastically. Try out to check your circuitry skills.
