Students from KL University create an e-bike with wireless charging. Students from KL Deemed University in this city have created a one-of-a-kind electric bike equipped with wireless charging technology.
The unique prototype was create by a group of six like-mindes thirds and fourth-year students from KL College of Engineering’s Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department, as well as a few university alumni members.
The e-bike created by the KLU team has a top speed of 55 kmph. And a charging capacity of between 85 and 100 kilometers in normal circumstances on a single five-hour charge.
The charging method is a combination with a program cell balancing function that maximizes battery capacity for an extende charge .
The e-bike is equipped with future technologies like cell balancing and wireless charging, so, which are now only accessible in a few locations worldwide.
The team created the original idea and prototype while using the university’s laboratories and testing facilities, which are also located in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
The team adapted an existing bike to serve as a prototype for wirelessly charging e-bikes. So, the team experimented with various modifications to the bike’s architecture. This Including connecting the BLDC motor (Brushless DC electric motor) to gear modules through the controller.
therefore, the university has awarded the team with a grant of Rs 1.40 lakh to nurture this innovative concept as a business.
“While the whole faculty appreciates these students’ devotion and hard work. We would want to reiterate the university’s commitment to research and innovation for the long-term benefit of both students and the country,” said Koneru Satyanarayana, President, KL Deemed University.
“For most of our first year, we were heavily involved in prototype and competition. At KL University, laboratory-based projects offered a solid basis for working with components, measurements, machines, and power electronics “M. Satyardha Pravashik, a final-year B.Tech student who was a member of the team that created the e-bike, said.
Other team members were Charan Sai Tiruvuri, Sandeep, Kireeti Polasi, S. Lokesh Babu, and V. Sai Praveen, all of whom are B. Tech EEE 2017 graduates, as well as K. Yashwanth Sai, an EEE department alumnus.
