conference contributionposted on 05.01.2022, 02:14 authored by M Burridge, Sanath AlahakoonSanath Alahakoon
This paper presents an electric propulsion system designed specifically to meet the performance specification for a competition racing kart application. The paper presents the procedure for the engineering design, construction and testing of the electric powertrain of the vehicle. High performance electric Go-Kart is not an established technology within Australia. It is expected that this work will provide design guidelines for a high performance electric propulsion system with the capability of forming the basis of a competitive electric kart racing formula for Australian conditions. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
