Development of a new generation electric moped – cooperation with TUL
The aim of the project is to specify the parameters of the electrical equipment of a small motorcycle (moped) of its own design to meet the applicant’s requirements for capacity, performance and compatibility with other elements of the moped equipment, and the subsequent selection of the components of the equipment. The project is co-financed by the European Union (Reg. No CZ.01.1.02/0.0/0.0/20_358/0027960).
GOODPED, s. r. o. cooperates with the Technical University of Liberec (TUL) on the development of a new generation electric moped. The subject of the service provided within the project is the development and design and verification technical services on the battery-powered electric armament (moped). In order to achieve the required characteristics of the moped – power/consumption/mileage ratio – we use the breadth of capabilities that TUL provides to successfully complete the development of our moped.
Thanks to it, under one umbrella institution, we are able to use our know-how in key areas and phases of development that are essential for us: from consulting the parameters of the moped’s electrical equipment, i.e. the engine, control unit, control unit and battery or set thereof, through cooperation in the selection of components based on technical specifications and the credibility of the offer, to the assessment of the parameters and quality of individual samples or sets received, including the performance of specialized tests and measurements in laboratories.
It is also essential for us to correctly tune and program speed limits, power or recuperation units. Due to the unconventional positioning of the battery – suspended under the frame for better maneuverability (low centre of gravity) – we also needed to verify the traction battery sample designed and submitted to us, which represents in particular: dismantling, checking the quality of the connections or the design of the BMS, sizing of the wiring, operation of the protections, checking load or long-term stress test of the battery including the BMS on a battery tester.
As part of a comprehensive project with TUL, we have also been optimizing the wiring of individual electrical components and the overall wiring, we have verified partial electromagnetic compatibility and we cooperate in the above-mentioned areas to prepare documents for the homologation of the vehicle for operation on roads.
