Abstract:

The team 2Wheels PoliTO of Politecnico di Torino decided to concur in the Motostudent Competition, in “Electric Category”. It will be the first experience in Electric Racing Motorcycle Design and for this reason a Feasibility Study is required in order to define the design approach and the quantity of components necessary to the correct functioning of the vehicle. In order to fulfil the request, an analysis of Regulations and how scoring assignment works is required. This first step helps to understand which the focus will be to reach best results. Old Regulations will be confronted with new ones to understand how the other teams worked in the past. Then a benchmark analysis becomes useful to define best practices, design particularities and best in class motorcycles. Next step will be the analysis of the most important necessary components. Particular attention will be given to Battery Pack and all its auxiliaries, because its design will hardly affect the dynamic behaviour of the vehicle, the power transferred to wheels and maximum range at racing working conditions. This last argument is crucial: will be analysed creating a script based on best time lap performance and requires temporary assumption from previous experiences and benchmark analysis. It will follow the design of the Transmission. It depends not only by electrical and physical characteristics of Electric Motor but also by dynamic necessities, the most important one is the squat ratio. The design will not be definitive and is done trying to create a lightweight system, the simplest and most effective possible, looking both to theory and past experiences of other teams, not only participating to Motostudent. The thesis will end with the Bill of Material, and the setup of an efficient strategy to understand which ones should be designed internally by the team, which ones requires design outsourcing and collaborations, and the ones worthless to design and bought by external suppliers.
