Abstract

The objective of this MQP was the design and manufacture of an electric motorbike with regenerative braking. The intention behind this was to show that regenerative braking is a cost effective way to increase the range of an electric motorbike in an urban setting. This MQP developed a platform to demonstrate the range extension available through regenerative braking. Although this platform has not yet yielded measurable results, this test bed will serve as a starting point for future students to optimize regenerative braking systems.
