Hello enthusiasts! We are excited to announce that IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society Brac University Student Branch Chapter is going to organize a webinar on Battery Technologies relating to the Electric Vehicle sector titled “Battery Electric Vehicle: A learning tool for students and its future ”

The automotive sector is undergoing a major paradigm shift. The demand for electric vehicles is skyrocketing in response to the ever-increasing problem of environmental preservation. The world is rapidly shifting from a fossil fuel-powered automobile industry to renewables, increasing in demand for electric vehicles. 

An electric car is powered by rechargeable batteries. Electric motors convert the energy stored in the battery into rotary motion.  Therefore, the battery is a key component of an electric vehicle. It is because the vehicle’s mileage and load-carrying capacity are highly dependent on the power delivered by the battery. Some batteries are produced to be power efficient while others are produced to be energy efficient. This is why it is necessary to look into the design and production cycles of a battery to better understand the components. 

The global automobile industry is presently undergoing a paradigm shift and switching to less energy-intensive/clean energy options. Where internal combustion engined cars get energy from burning petrol or diesel, an electric vehicle gets its power directly from a big pack of batteries.

Battery-electric cars don’t use any gasoline but instead, run solely on electricity stored in a battery pack that energizes one or more electric motors and produces zero tailpipe emissions. These cars can be charged almost anywhere, anytime, and usually at a much lower cost than fueling with gasoline. Their driving ranges on a full charge vary widely from about 80 to more than 300 miles, with considerably higher ranged electric cars coming soon.

The Battery Electric Vehicle industry is undergoing a paradigm transition, with a trend toward less energy-intensive/clean energy solutions. Battery-electric vehicles do not require gasoline; instead, they run purely on electricity stored in a battery pack, which powers one or more electric motors and emits no exhaust. These vehicles may be charged almost anywhere, at any time, and a far cheaper cost than gasoline. On a full charge, their driving ranges range from around 80 to more than 300 miles, with even longer-range electric automobiles on the way.
Dr. A. R. Khan is an Associate Professor of Practice at The University of Texas, El Paso. He obtained his BS and MS degree in Applied Chemistry & Chemical Engineering from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Electronic, and Computer Engineering from the School of Engineering, Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan. His research involvement was Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) to prepare MOSFET, Transistor, p-n junction, etc., development of a passive spacecraft charge neutralizer (Electron Emitting Film, ELF) and Surface Charging Monitor (SCM), double Langmuir Probe (DLP) with space grade circuitry, 3D printer for spacecraft, etc.

This webinar will take a deep dive into batteries that go into electric vehicles. If you are interested in battery technologies, development procedures, and chemical properties you do not want to miss this opportunity to join us in this seminar.
