Design a battery pack that can power the cooling system of our electric racing vehicle for one hour conforming to a series of electrical requirements
I completed all elements of this project individually.
The Olin Electric Motorsports (OEM) Mk. 5 vehicle has a central battery called the accumulator. This battery generates heat, which must be removed for efficient function. To remove this heat, there are a series of fans and a cooling pump integrated into the pack.
The cooling battery is designed to power the cooling system continuously for one hour.
This project will evaluate/investigate the
High-Level Design Goals
This pack conforms to a series of requirements
Below are images of the OEM vehicle
