2012-13 SENIOR DESIGN PROJECTS

Dordt Electric Car Battery Monitoring System

Jon Bierma, Daniel Gondere, Jared Goedhart

Sponsor: Dordt College engineering department

The car battery monitor was designed for the electric car made by Dordt College seniors in 2009, which had no "fuel" gauge. This project design measures the car batteries' electrical characteristics and calculates the percent of charge remaining in the batteries. This is displayed to the driver, along with the distance that can be driven with that charge.
