Abstract

Motors are very commonly used as electrical energy to mechanical energy converters. This project focuses on innovative ways to design and manufacture an electric motor for small vehicle use. The design stage had to take electrical, material, and mechanical factors into consideration. The particular application for this project would be a hub motor that had to fit within 10” rims. Some other constraints were voltage and revolution per minute limitations (under 300V and 1400 rpm), bolt patterns, and cost-effectiveness. The main components are the rotor, stator, bobbins, windings, and structural mounts for assembly and mounting purposes. Analysis and math modeling were used for the design and material selection. Varieties of manufacturing processes were taken into consideration for the parts and were decided by certain criterion.
