    Electric cars are simple why are you making it sound so complicated when its not. If you ever own a hobby grade Radio control car then basically you have all you need to know unless your spreed control is not working then all you have to do is replace it i doubt very highly mechanics like you and me will not be replacing chips or processors in fact the whole speed control will get replaced. Some Old school mechanics fear the EV cars but i understand them perfectly and they are far less complicated the an internal combustion engine.

BEVs need much less maintenance and pollute less and cost less to drive. You are getting closer to understand BEVs but your learning curve is step.

    In my humble 2 cents, I have few things to say, hear me out and if you can give it some thoughts. 1. A little bit of math from an electrical engineer: 1 gallon of diesel is equivalent to 40kwh, so the model X has maximum 100kwh which equals to 2.5 gallons of diesel as far as energy storage is concerned. I estimate the cybertruck will have 200kwh and can travel 500 miles. Can you travel 500 miles with 5 gallons of diesel? This shows how efficient electric automobile are. That is why electric car owner can save a lot of money travelling. 2. The future is here just like when the qwerty keyboard phone is switched to touch screen phone. Just like when we switch from horse to car, from wood to oil and now from oil to electric and solar. Look at china and how pollution is making everyone sick in big city, and soon everywhere on this earth. 3. If you found someone put garbage in front of your house what would you feel? Well, everyday people spraying exhaust garbage right into your nose, much worse than the sight of garbage in front of your house. It will be illegal in California from 2025 and eventually everywhere. Wake up and really see the truth instead of sticking to what used to work but won't in the future. In the beginning of automobile people actually going through the same rejection of new things, such as between horse and car where horse only need grass and water and you coouldn't get gas in the middle of the road (there used to be no gas station anywhere). You already know what the result was. 4. If you buy a gas automobile now, be prepare to not be able to sell it to others and have to purchase electric once the law is changed because we will have to outlaw gas automobile. Embrace what is better instead of holding on and hanging on to what no longer work and regret much more later on. My little 2 cents advice to readers.

    Actually, the problem with DC motors over AC motors is or more correctly was commutation. Modern power electronics has addressed this problem and given us brush less DC motors. The main problem with AC motors is that the rate of rotation is tied to the frequency of the AC power and the number of poles in the motor, in other words, it used to be that AC motors ran at one speed and one speed only. However modern power electronics have allowed us to customize the frequency of the AC power provided to the AC motor. Now, AC of course allows the use of high voltages and low currents thereby reducing the thickness of the cables required and the energy loss commensurate with high currents. Overall, the respective disadvantages have been addressed with power electronics. One of my undergrad papers decades ago was that the new power semiconductors will make the use of AC motors for vehicles possible and perhaps advantageous. I was writing of vehicles such as LRT trains but basically what I predicted did come true both with LRT's and EV's. Note, due to the ingenious mechanical transmission of the Prius, it has two electric motors, one for counter torque so with the Prius, there's actually three prime movers and of course the weight of having so many systems. The Tesla's claim to fame is the use of Halbach arrays to effectively double magnetic field strength, of course Halbach arrays also create an alternating pattern of magnetic fields hence AC motors are a must.

    The Tesla motors are brushless DC motors its basically a 3 polled motor controlled by pulse width modulation of high voltage DC. The higher the frequency the faster it turns, way different than an AC motor

    The only Prius "transmission" I am aware of is an Electric transmission. IT IS NOT a CVT! It uses Electric motors, plus the conventional Engine, and depending on the speed and charge, it runs the Engine and/or the Electric Motors at various speeds, and even directions (on the Electric Motors) to produce motion of the vehicle. It does have the advantages a CVT has in being fully adjustable to optimize for torque and power, but the comparison ends there.

    The comparison between jump starting an electric car and an ICE car is a false equivalency. Jump starting a car provides energy to engage the mechanical process for combustion. Charging the car provides "fuel" for the vehicle's propulsion. A better comparison would be comparing an electric car out of battery charge and a ICE car out of gasoline. You can tap into almost any source of electricity to charge the car (including the sun), but you can't get gasoline from sunshine; You have to get it for a gas station.

    anyons5پیش 21 ساعت

    Scotty, i usually like you're insights into long-term failure and mechanical processes that a repair mechanics sees on an ICE car, but in this case you are not well informed. Modern electric cars operate nothing like a toy RC car. You failed to mention the key component, the the Power electronics module or power inverter. Transformers are not key primary components of the AC or DC drivetrain. Transformers don't generate multi-phase AC wave. They step one voltage down to another voltage or vice versa at a fixed ratio. That is done with an array cascading power transistors. You're logic of DC motor's torque decay does hold water with modern power electronics. Torque this only limited by the available power from the battery . As the shaft speed increases, the rotational torque will drop off proportionally. Range doesn't reduce in cold weather because a loss of efficiency; range is lost because the chemical reaction slows down when the temperature drops. This is an entirely new way of propulsion, it's worth understanding it first before forming an opinion on its shortcomings.

    Id have to disagree on the difficulty of working on an electric car, they are quite easy to work on, you do have to take proper saftey precautions before doing certain tasks however the same is true of a normal car, the main reason most people dont think they are easy is because they believe tech is more complicated than it is, and also cause tesla doesn't like you fixing your own car cause they suck so they try to avoid you being able to get your own parts

    Scotty a transformer is used to transfer energy from one circuit to 1 or more circuits what you meant was a “inverter” which takes direct current (dc) and converts it to alternating current (ac) and a “rectifier” changes (ac) to(dc)

    Scotty doesn't seem to know that all electric cars (except the Nissan Leaf) have active thermal management for the battery packs so while you're at home sleeping and the car is plugged in overnight to charge it's actually using some energy from the house to keep the pack nice and warm too. As a Canadian in the great white north here who's been driving an electric car for the past three years every day - yes even in the winter! - the hands-down best features of an electric car is pre-heating while plugged-in and the instant heat. Not only do I not have to wait for a big gas engine to warm up before I get some heat in the cabin but I don't have to scrape my windshield in the morning anymore either! Electric cars have instant heat and while you do sacrifice some range in the winter it's not as bad as he makes it out to seem (unless you have a Leaf), plus if you schedule your car with when you usually leave in the morning it will get itself all nice and warm and defrosted - all without polluting. So with an EV you wake up every day with a full 'tank' of electrons (which is now about as much range as you get in a typical gas car), you don't have to scrape in the morning, you get instant heat, less maintenance since there's no oil to change, or timing belts, or exhaust system or the thousand other engine things that can break, and you don't have to spend time outside freezing while you fill it up with gas since you never have to go to a gas station again or concern yourself with gas prices. Electric cars in the winter are actually WAY BETTER than gas cars. And pretty much all of the country has access to the miracle of electricity (which is always cheaper than gas!) so if you run out it's not the end of the world because literally any plug can be a 'fuel' source although most normal people realize they're running low and find a charger well before that. And chargers are friggin' everywhere but unless you drive an EV you probably wouldn't notice them.

    You don't get something for nothing. For example, if a 20 hp engine will not adequately propel a vehicle at 60 mph, then neither will a 20 hp engine attached to a generator be able to generate enough electrical energy to adequately propel that vehicle at 60 mph. So with that being said, how much energy does that motorcycle engine produce?
