Summary "A complete guide to electric vehicle design, operation, and adoption. This hands-on resource thoroughly explains the technologies and techniques involved in the design and operation of today's electric vehicles. Originally written for use in a course co-taught by the authors at Stanford University, Electric Vehicle Engineering discusses the physics of vehicle motion; the electrical principles on which motors rely; the chemistry, operation, and charging of lithium-ion batteries; the design and operation of motor controllers; the energy efficiency and environmental impact of electric vehicles; and the policy and economics affecting their adoption. After teaching you the theory, the authors will guide you through a hands-on project in which you will build a model electric car from the ground up with a hand-wound electric motor of your own design."--Publisher's description
