The students had a tight schedule to complete the electric superbike with big challenges in both mechanical and electrical engineering. They needed to develop a highly efficient 100kW motor unit with a custom automotive-compliant control unit. And most important, the bike had to be safe. They had to deal with high currents, high voltages, and high speed. The bike’s power is delivered through several lithium-ion batteries that can become unstable if not treated well. To save time, a “first-time right” approach was required — endless creation of prototypes would kill the schedule.
