In the first part of this topic, we showed the process that lead us to the sizing and configuration of our battery pack. In this post, we are going to go through the process of adapting that batterypack to the motorcycle, how the first version of battery containers were designed and produced.   The changes made in the design of the accumulator container and consequent changes in other parts of the electric system such as the BMS were made with the objective of simplifying integration of th ...
        One of the hardest part (at least for us) of building an electric motorcycle is the development of the accumulator and respective container. The sizing of the battery is not the only problem, designing a safe and simple wiring method, and containers for the batteries that comply with the safety norms of Motostudent regulation, and at the same time actually fit all of that plus electronics inside the frame of a motorcycle is quite difficult as well. This is the story o ...
TLMoto is a team of students from Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal. Our main goal is to build a fully electric motorcycle to participate the Motostudent International Competition, which happens every two years in the Motorland Aragon MotoGP Circuit.   Our team was created in 2012 and competed in 2014 in the Petrol category (as there was no electric category at the time).  Now, we are building our first electric Motorcycle and will participate this October in the Mot ...
