Understanding the Advanced Work of Electric Cars
3 November, 2021
Electric cars are one type of car that is on the rise in Indonesia, because it is environmentally friendly and its performance is not inferior to cars in general. The way electric cars work is to move vertically and the main power base is by battery.
The battery contained in an electric car will drive the electric motor to make it running. Electric cars have existed since ancient times and were actually first produced in 1880.
The development of electric cars today is indeed very rapid, so many well-known car manufacturers are issuing their best electric cars. Electric cars have many components and each of them has a different use.
Electric Car Components
1. BEV Component
The BEV component will usually have DC battery power converted to AC to drive the car system. Subsequently, the accelerator pedal will signal the control module to directly adjust the speed of the vehicle.
The components of the BEV electric car include the Drive Train, Control Module, Battery, Inverter and Electric Motor. The performance of these components will support the quality of the electric car, so it must be highly maintained.
2. HEV Component
HEV components consist of Control Module, Fuel Tank, Electric Motor, Engine, Battery pack with Controller & Inverter. HEV-type car components usually have a gas tank similar to conventional four-wheeled vehicles because they are not fully electric driven.
But the HEV component has a set of batteries that can be useful to make the car run. In general, the motor engine can rotate the transmission simultaneously and during the braking process it becomes a generator to charge the battery.
3. PHEV component
PHEV electric car components consist of Battery Charger, Control Module, Fuel Tank, Battery, Inverter, Engine and Electric Motor. In general, the PHEV Electric Car Components and Workings are very unique because the engine can take over the power when the electricity in the car runs out.
In that position, the car will be in a conventional non plug-in hybrid position. In general, the power source in the fully electric or all electric position can only last up to 70 miles per hour.
4. FCEV Components
The FCEV component consists of Hydrogen Storage Tank, Fuel Cell Stack, Electric Motor, Battery With Converter & Controller. FCEV electric car components are classified as sophisticated electric car components because they can convert biodiesel into electric power.
How Do Electric Cars Work?
Basically, the way electric cars work is very practical and simple. Energy that comes from the battery will be channeled to move the wheels of the car, so you have to make sure that the electricity in the wheels of the car is fully charged.
When you press the gas pedal, the controller will regulate the electric power from the traction battery and inverter. Then the inverter will flow electrical energy to the motor which is adjusted to the pedal pressure. Furthermore, electrical traction will convert energy into mechanical energy to turn the wheels. The rotation of the rotor on the motor will move the transmission to move the car.
The Benefits of Electric Cars You Need To Know
An electric car does not produce emissions, so it is considered environmentally friendly. By using an electric car, you will play an important role in maintaining the quality of your environment.
Electric cars will certainly not cause pollution, because electric cars are one of the non-emission vehicles that do not have an impact on environmental damage. The use of electric cars will make the air quality better and will not pollute the environment.
2. Smooth Car Sounds
If you want to have a car with a smooth engine sound, then you can use an electric car. The car engine and components in it will produce a quiet sound. Using this will make your driving more comfortable without the need to hear a lot of noise.
Electric cars are very different from conventional cars which often make noise in the engine and emit emissions. In terms of comfort, of course, electric cars are superior to conventional cars.
3. More Affordable Prices
Almost all motorists would want a cheap and environmentally friendly family car. One of the most appropriate solutions is to buy an electric car, because the cost of using this car is much cheaper than that of conventional cars.
Electric cars have more efficient engine performance, so you can get many benefits when using electric cars. The type of electric car that you can choose is very diverse and can be adjusted to your likings.
4. Easier Car Maintenance
It is easier to maintain an electric car than a conventional car, because electric cars have an exhaust system. You do not need to do special maintenance such as oil changes and others. You just need to check regularly.
5. Faster Acceleration
Electric cars usually have more capable acceleration, because electric cars can transmit torque in a faster period of time than conventional cars. There are even some manufacturers who create electric cars with extraordinary acceleration.
6. Only Need To Charge The Battery
The next benefit of electric cars is that there is no need to refill fuel nor queue at the gas station, because electric cars only require charging the battery. Only by charging the battery for a few minutes, then the car can travel far.
At the GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2021 event, Wuling introduced the Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) which is the next step in Wuling's preparation to participate in the electric car market in Indonesia.
There are two main advantages of the GSEV that are at the center of attention, first is the compact and comfortable dimensions so that the driver can park more easily. Although it has small dimensions, the cabin on the inside is very spacious. You can apply for 4 seats or you can fold the 2 rear seats to get more space for luggage.
The second advantage is that it is very suitable for daily use because it can cover a distance of up to 300 km in a full battery condition. In addition, the GSEV also has a fast charging facility so you can charge the battery faster. GSEV batteries are guaranteed safety through high endurance testing, IP68 waterproof standards and equipped with a Smart Battery Management System.
You can also find smart features that have been the advantages of Wuling cars so far, such as Internet of Vehicle (IoV), ADAS, Automatic Parking, to Multimedia features with Voice Command support. Such is the description of how electric cars work which gets more popular these days, are you interested?
