Drivetrain design for a series electrical hybrid vehicleFinal Engineering Projectby Taras Machula

PurposeThe project consisted of designing a vehicle propulsion system, a power generation system, braking system, wheel hubs, and electric componentsThe goal was to create in conjunction with 2 other teams a complete design of a 3-wheel small electric hybrid vehicle intended for city delivery of post parcels and packagesWe created a number of MATLAB procedures that calculated design dimensions and chose standard components (bearings, bolts) from catalogues. All dimensions are based extensive strength, force, deflection, and fatigue analysis. The output of the code is a text file with dimensions used by the main SolidWorks assembly.Once the design parameters are changed, the whole design can be updated by simply pressing the rebuild button in SolidWorks.

System outlineOutline of the system:Power is generated by an ICE connected to a stock permanent magnet motor (PMM) through a gear reducerPower is stored in a combination of batteries and ultra-capacitorsPower is drawn from the storage system by another PMM and transferred onto the back wheel through a gear reducer and a chain drive.Hydraulic disc-based braking system is implemented on the front wheels, and regenerative braking on the back one

Design parameterizationThe design is fully parameterized. Below is the example of how the wheel hub dimensions change depending on the desired vehicle mass. Note the wheel hub diameter, brake caliper size, and different bearings used.
