IIT Guwahati Develops Standardized Electric Vehicle Technology

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati has created a unique technology that assesses electric vehicle motors and batteries based on Indian drive-cycles.

According to government officials, current electric vehicles fail to account for India’s wide range of climates and do not prioritize rural and urban travel cycles in their development.

Electric Vehicles (EVs) 

A time series of data points is a common way to depict a whole drive cycle. The purpose of driving cycles is to evaluate a vehicle’s fuel efficiency and emissions.

Praveen Kumar a professor of electrical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, said “You cannot use an electric powertrain with components meant for humid climates to power the wheels in a dry and cold environment. Because of this, OEMs are currently exploring adapting standard drive cycles to Indian conditions.”

Praveen Kumar added “A data request from an Indian automobile manufacturer indicates that this technique is not currently used by any OEM. It is the goal of this study to improve regional engines. Entrepreneurs that are just starting out will benefit from this policy change. This research aims to cut back on pollutants and fuel consumption.”

IIT Guwahati’s Electric Mobility Laboratory investigated the Indian climate, both rural and urban, in order to better understand the country’s transportation needs. Using this approach, they were able to recommend a suitable drivetrain. IIT Guwahati researchers claim their drive-cycles to be the first in the world.

New entrants to the electric vehicle (EV) industry will benefit from a document that will help them compete on an equal footing. This exercise also educates the next generation of technocrats for a fulfilling future in EV technology no matter where they live. Researchers at the institute will concentrate on building improved drivetrains for commercial vehicles that are better suited to India’s different climates. Researchers are working on four-wheeled vehicles as well as two-wheeled ones to perfect this technology. “For the sake of the country’s long-term sustainability and to reduce its carbon footprint, the development of next-generation energy-efficient electric vehicle technology is important.”  Added Kumar.
